Country music singer-songwriter Miranda Lambert's wedding was pulled off without the public having a clue until weeks later...

In a brand new interview with PEOPLE, country music superstar Miranda Lambert got candid about her fast-moving relationship with husband Brendan McLoughlin. So why was Miranda Lambert’s wedding in Davidson Country, Tennessee on January 26th so hush-hush until she broke the news to fans on February 16th? It’s pretty simple, she learned some important lessons from her first marriage to fellow country music artist Blake Shelton.

“I was married before, and it was a huge wedding and everything was very public. So was my divorce,” Lambert explained. “I learned then that it’s not for everybody else. This is my actual life. With Brendan, I made it a point to keep it as private as I could for as long as I could.”

After going through so much in her 35 years on this planet, the Texan now knows exactly what she wants and is willing to grab it.

“I feel like I’ve been through enough in my life to know what I don’t want, so when I know what I do want I snatch it right up,” Lambert shared about falling head over heels for McLoughlin, 28, after meeting him for the first time last November in New York City.

When asked by the outlet if it was love at first sight, she joked, “I guess so. If that’s a thing. I have eight dogs and had love at first sight with them, too. Must be easier than I thought!”

Right now, Brendan is on leave from the NYPD and has joined Miranda out on the road. Although being thrown into the spotlight can be difficult, Miranda says her husband is doing well despite having every part of his personal life put under the microscope and ‘takes it like a champ.’
