Miranda Lambert Talks Upcoming Scripted Podcast Make It Up as We Go, Glamping with Her Husband

Miranda Lambert is bringing her talents to a new podcast.

The country star, 36, has signed on as a featured cast member and executive producer of the upcoming scripted, country-musical podcast Make It Up as We Go, PEOPLE can exclusively announce

Created by podcast content production studio and network Audio Up, Make It Up as We Go follows the story of an aspiring young female songwriter (played by musician Scarlett Burke), and her pursuits to make a name for herself in the music industry.

"I built a career telling stories, specifically through music," Lambert tells PEOPLE. "I was drawn to a new form of storytelling with podcasts, which I have never done before. The main character, Scarlett Burke, and her challenges as an aspiring singer/songwriter, are ones that I can relate to firsthand, which really captivated my attention."

As Burke's character encounters a number of personalities, Make It Up as We Go unravels her personal journey navigating the writer's rooms of Nashville and finding her own voice along the way — something Lambert could relate to firsthand.

"I came to Nashville 18 years ago and really started cutting my teeth as a songwriter and performer," she says. "So I can relate to the trajectory of a singer/songwriter's career that comes with many highs and lows. This story captures those moments in a compelling narrative."



Another recent addition to their family is Tequila (the kitten!), whom Lambert and McLoughlin, 28, rescued in June after spotting him on the side of the road.

"Tequila is adjusting perfectly to farm life and loves hanging out with my dogs," Lambert says. "My husband found him at the perfect time. My foundation, MuttNation, just launched a pet food line called 'On the Farm' distributed at Tractor Supply Company that includes cat food. Needless to say, he has been eating well!"

Make It Up as We Go will be released through iHeartPodcast Network on Oct. 1.
