Oh, the places they’ll go!

Although Miranda Lambert’s Wildcard tour is on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic, she and husband Brendan McLoughlin may have some solo travels in their future. The country star, 36, revealed over the weekend that she and her husband have added another member to their family: a brand-new RV.

“When people ask me questions about all the traveling I’ve done, my answer is pretty much the same every time. ‘I’ve been everywhere, but I haven’t seen much of anything,’ ” Lambert wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of the pair smiling in front of their new purchase. “I’ve been touring for 19 years and most times we just roll in, play our show, and roll to the next town. I’ve only gotten to spend some real time in a few of the places I’ve been.”

However, after spending so much time together at home in Nashville, which the country superstar called a “much-needed break and time to nest,” she came to a realization. “Just because I can’t travel and play shows doesn’t mean I can’t travel and make music. I have the most amazing travel companion, my husband, and we decided to add a family member.”

In fact, Lambert’s new vehicle is already such an important part of the couple’s life that they’ve even given it a nickname “Y’all Meet ‘The Sheriff,’ ” she wrote, before explaining why purchasing the RV, which even includes a shower, was a little out of her comfort zone.

“I’ve been a vintage trailer collector for years and this is my very first new one. I’m letting go of a few vintage to make room for adventure in this silver gem!” Lambert continued. “ I don’t like change but I’m learning to embrace it.”

Although it’s unclear exactly what the future holds, for now, Lambert says she and her husband will “be pulling this rig all over the country.”

“I know that seeing the world through the windshield again will bring creative vibes,’ she added, including the hashtags “highway vagabonds” and “livin like hippies.”

"Maui is a magical place. Playing music here with great friends is a dream," Miranda Lambert wrote on Instagram

Giving her followers a window into how the pair have been navigating this difficult time, in March, Lambert shared that although her anxiety was “still through the roof,” the pair were managing to stay busy.

“Brendan and I have been cooking, cleaning, working out (some virtual classes but not enough @b.w.fitness @willowpilatesstudio 😬) spending time with dogs and horses and just being together quietly,” the singer wrote. “Well besides the country music constantly coming through the speakers.”

I haven’t really known what to say on social media during all this. I’m not great at socials anyway and a time like this makes it that much more difficult for me to figure out how to be. Tuesday of this week is when I finally realized I could unpack. For the next few months for me there are no shows, no sound checks, no bus calls, no flights. Just home. Once I processed it, I actually got a feeling of peace even though , like all of us, my anxiety about the sate of the world right now is still through the roof. I’ve started working on some projects around the farm that I kept running from because I had to leave for work and some I’ve wanted to run from because organization is not my fav. Ive been having some pretty cool virtual happy hours with friends and family. Brendan and I have been cooking, cleaning, working out (some virtual classes but not enough @b.w.fitness @willowpilatesstudio 😬) spending time with dogs and horses and just being together quietly . Well besides the country music constantly coming through the speakers. I have written a few songs for the first time in a year. And text writing a cowgirl song with @ronniedunn (such a fan girl of B&D). Today I spent most of the day thanking Jesus that the sun was out. The baby chicks are about to move into their new coop and that’s about all the news we have around here for the time being. We miss our road family, New York family and I dang sure miss my Texas fam. My soul sister @apes_1983 just had her first baby yesterday, baby Finn, and we only get to see him through a screen for now. I wish I was there in person. Soon enough good Lord willin. But in happy news, this box arrived today and I felt my heart jump. Some wine from @red55winery , freshly canned salsa, apple butter, Paw Paws bbq sauce, and a note on napkin. “Sending love from home. love mom and dad (be safe). I do feel safe now knowing that even though they are over 600 miles away I’m connected to all of them. Sending light to all the first responders and health care workers. Stay home. Call home

However, she added that both she and the retired NYPD officer were missing their loved ones. “We miss our road family, New York family and I dang sure miss my Texas fam,” she wrote.

Lambert has been open in the past about how she and her husband are two peas in a pod when it comes to hitting the road.

“My husband is very open and happy to travel and could be ready to go anywhere in 15 minutes,” she told PEOPLE last year. “I love that. Kind of met a kindred spirit there.”
