She’ll always be country, but Miranda Lambert has a newfound appreciation for city life.

That’s all thanks to her husband of nine months, NYPD officer Brendan McLoughlin

“I love the city. My heart is in Texas and Tennessee, but my husband has opened my eyes to a whole new world,” Lambert tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, opening up about her new album Wildcardout now, and happy life now.

While the star, 36, who now has a Manhattan apartment with McLoughlin, had experienced New York City long before meeting the Staten Island native last November, the Big Apple feels different these days.

“I’ve been to New York so many times, but I’ve only worked,” she explains. “I’ve never just gotten to like hang out and wander the city and really take in what that is, good and bad. There’s these crazy awesome rock bars and graffiti, I really enjoy it.”

All that said, “It does drain your energy,” admits Lambert. “Spending a lot of time here, I start to get anxiety and stress, and go, ‘Okay, that’s three days. No more sirens. I’m good’… That’s why going back to the farm refuels me. When I was younger, I used to thrive on more noise and more going and more people. It’s opposite now. I need the quiet versus the noise.”
