Miranda Lambert has topped the country singles chart for the fourth time in her career with “Over You,” from her latest album, "Four the Record."
Lambert wrote the emotionally charged song with husband Blake Shelton, about the death of Blake’s teenage brother. Lambert also is the reigning and two-time Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Female vocalist of the year.
“I think the key is we sort of pick and choose what we want to do together as artists because we don’t ever want the business to get in the way of our personal relationship," Lambert said in a press statement about working with her husband.
"So when we write together, we kind of step away from being husband and wife, and we just become artists that respect each other. And it’s a really good relationship, and I think doing that every now and then and keeping it special is what makes it work.”
