In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, Lambert discussed how she makes music nowadays and how she finds inspiration in her marriage with Brendan McLoughlin. Elsewhere in the interview, Lambert discussed how she makes sad songs.  “Sometimes artists live in darkness, and use it for their art or whatever … but you know, you don’t have to be tortured to be good. Like, you can write a sad song and not have to live every sad song you ever write, you know? It’s an impossible way to live,” Lambert said. Do you listen to sad songs without being sad? What is your favorite sad song?
