Lambert, who grew to fame following her appearance on Nashville Star in 2003, says she feels very lucky that her husband-to-be -- fellow country singer Blake Shelton -- let the song pass so that she could act on it. "I'm so lucky that I was the one who got my hands on it," Miranda told EOnline.com. "The song was pitched to Blake originally for him to cut it and when I heard the song it just hit me so hard. I had a crazy reaction and I started bawling. It takes a lot for me to get to a crying point when I listen to music but it was just one of those songs where I had this feeling about it."
Blake Shelton's trash became Miranda Lambert's very shiny treasure -- the 'White Liar' singer is looking at two Grammy nominations for 'The House That Built Me.' Miranda added: "I'm sure he wants it back at this point!"
Shelton isn't totally down on his luck -- the 'Hillbilly Bone' singer took home Male Vocalist of the Year at the 2010 CMAs, while Lambert was awarded with Female Vocalist of the Year.
