Miranda Lambert is giving fans an inside look at her “ideal day off,” which includes time spent with her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, and her horses. 

The country superstar took to Instagram to share a carousel of photos and videos offering an unfiltered look at her time away from the spotlight. 

“Ideal Day Off”

One photo features a selfie with a horse, and another snapshot includes her husband, Brendan, spotting a Buc-ee’s tank top. 

The videos include several sweet moments shared with her horse, presumably named Dallas, which she points out on the final slide. 

Her caption reads” Them: what’s your ideal day off? Me: 🐴😍🌾👩‍🌾” 

Enjoying Time Off The Road

Lambert has been enjoying quite a bit of downtime in recent weeks. She recently paid a visit across the pond to play a few shows and worked in a bit of vacation time into the mix. Thanks to her social media posts, fans got a glimpse into her time overseas with McLoughlin.

They began their journey in Switzerland with visits to Lake Lucerne and Gstaad. 

“Pictures don’t even come close to capturing the beauty,” Lambert wrote alongside several photos from their trip. 

Shared Vacation Photos With Fans

The couple later visited Vienna, which Lambert deemed the “most stunning place” she has ever seen.

“Ya’ll better put Austria on the top of your list if you haven’t been already. It was overwhelming in the best way,” she shared. 

They also visited Salzburg and enjoyed “walks in the rain” and took in “all the old world beauty” around them. 

Special Moment With Manager

Closing out their European trip in Germany, Lambert got to share an extra special moment with her longtime manager, Marion Kraft, in Munich.

“I’ve been with my manager and friend @marionkraft for 20 years and this is the first time I got to go back home with her. She grew up in a small village in the south of Germany and after all this time hearing great things about it, I finally got to see the place that shaped one of my most favorite people. It was so special to me to get to share this trip with her and our pals,” the ACM Triple Crown winner captioned her Instagram post. “Oktoberfest was like a movie. Unforgettable! Love you @marionkraft and thanks for putting this together for all of us. This whole trip filled my ❤️.”  

Back To Work

Upon her return to the States, Lambert eased back to work and recently participated in a design meeting for her clothing line, Idyllwind, and its forthcoming Summer 2024 line.
