In an email interview, Lambert, 31, attributed this newly relaxed demeanor to a recent birthday, writing, “My songwriting had a little more humor to it, and I saw that I could relax a bit more and delve into subjects that address the coming of age.”

She also takes a longer look in the mirror on songs like the surprisingly vulnerable “Bathroom Sink,” singing, “It's amazin' the amount of rejection/ That I see in my reflection.”

“Acceptance is probably the most universal thought expressed [on the album],” Lambert wrote. “It's tricky, as there is always an uncomfortable feeling to lay[ing] it out there for everyone to hear, but it pushes me and keeps me real.”

Justin Moore and Raelynn open the show.
