If you've got a cold brew to spare, pass it to Miranda Lambert.

"The House That Built Me" singer took to the WE Fest stage Friday where she opened up about her public split from fellow country artist Blake Shelton, and even appeared to tear up during one of her songs.

After welcoming Dierks Bentley for a surprise performance, Lambert attempted to rev up the seemingly lethargic crowd, Taste of Country reports. She jokingly asked if people at the Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, concert were still out there, implying they were too tired from drinking.

"I wish I've been drinking all day," she said. "I deserve it, I just got a divorce."

Shelton, by the way, performed at WE Fest the next night – though Forum notes he never mentioned Lambert, despite being chatty between songs.

Fans took to Twitter to show their support; some noted that the country star had a tough time getting through "Over You," a song co-written with Shelton about his brother's death.
