Pistol Annies "Got My Name Changed Back" Music Video

Miranda Lambert Pokes Fun at Divorce in Glitzy Music Video For "Got My Name Changed Back"

It's safe to say divorce court has never looked this good.

In the music video for the recently reunited Pistol Annies' "Got My Name Changed Back," Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe, and Angaleena Presley dress to the nines for their appearance in front of a judge. As the song's title suggests, Lambert sings about reclaiming her old name and isn't afraid to drag her cheating ex through the mud.

"It takes a judge to get married, it takes a judge to get divorced / Well the last couple of years, spent a lotta time in court," she sings on the stand in front of a packed room, before repeating "Got my name changed back."

Although she doesn't name anyone specifically, it's not hard to guess that the tune was inspired by Lambert's rocky few years in love. She divorced from country singer Blake Shelton in 2015, dated Anderson East shortly afterwards, and then found herself caught up in a love triangle when she broke up with East and started dating Turnpike Troubadours musician Evan Felker despite the fact he was married at the time.

Lambert has since broken it off with Felker, since she told The Tennessean in August that she was "happily single" and focusing on music to empower women.

"Love is a hard road sometimes and it's been a roller-coaster ride for me, but I'm definitely thankful for all the ups and downs because I've had some really good songs come out of it," she said. "You've got to take the bad parts and put them on paper and then move on to the happy parts."

If the ridiculously fun video for "Got My Name Changed Back" is any indication, Lambert is doing just fine.
