Miranda Lambert is living proof that music is medicine.

George Jones is an inspiration to most country singers, including Lambert. She has previously performed at a tribute concert for George Jones in 2013, singing "These Days (I Barely Get By)" with then-husband Blake Shelton.

She shared a photo on her Instagram with the caption "'It's been a good year for the roses'...", which is a lyric from George Jones' hit song "Good Year For The Roses". 

"Good Year For The Roses" was recorded by Jones in 1970 and rose to #2 on the country singles charts. The song describes the thoughts a man has as his wife is preparing to leave him and Jones' vocals convey both the sadness and profound bitterness that comes with a broken marriage.

Lambert just wrapped her Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour, and is apparently already in the studio. Her Instagram photo also included the hashtags "#StudioA #musicismedicine #soiswhiskey". 

"Good Year For The Roses" songwriter, Jerry Chesnut told The Tennessean that his inspiration for the song was his own roses he grew. He got to thinking, "What if it'd been a good year for roses, but everything else was going to pot?" he says. "The whole world's going to pot, but the roses are just blooming like crazy."

Perhaps she is implying that her new music is helping her heal from her divorce. 

Check out the photo below.

Lyrics Below

I can hardly bare the sight of lipstick
On the cigarettes there in the ashtray
Lyin' cold the way you left them
At least your lips caressed them while you packed
And a lip print on a half-filled cup of coffee
That you poured and didn't drink
But at least you thought you wanted it
That's so much more than I can say for me

But what a good year for the roses
Many blooms still linger there
The lawn could stand another mowin'
It's funny, I don't even care
And when you turned and walked away
And as the door behind you closes
The only thing I know to say
It's been a good year for the roses

After three full years of marriage
It's the first time that you haven't made the bed
I guess the reason we're not talkin'
There's so little left to say, we haven't said
While a million thoughts go runnin' through my mind
I find I haven't spoke a word
And from the bedroom those familiar sounds
Of our one baby's cryin' goes unheard

But what a good year for the roses
Many blooms still linger there
The lawn could stand another mowin'
It's funny, I don't even care
And when you turned and walked away
And as the door behind you closes
The only thing I know to say
It's been a good year for the roses
