Blake Shelton Divorced Miranda Lambert

Miranda Lambert divorced her husband and it seemed quite a messy affair back in 2015. At the time, it seemed like a train wreck. In fact, back in 2019, many fans thought that when Miranda sang about getting “the hell out of Oklahoma” at the Academy of Country Music Awards, she shaded her ex.

  1. Miranda is very happy with Brendan . He lets her be her and doesn’t try to change her. Blake, who put her things on the front porch, that was classey, should be the one feeling awkward!! Purple Irises really wasn’t meant for Blake to sing on, so why do it at the ACMs!?

  2. I love Gwen Stefani and Blake Sheldon’s love story and love whenever they do duets- and I usually don’t like country music- though there’s isn’t so much.
    Gwen Stefani is no homewreaker…Lambert had affairs wile married to Blake Sheldon…and she is now married- so there should be no ill feeling between them all.

    1. Blake used to put empty beer cans on his head, and Miranda would shoot them off, with a 12 gauge shotgun. they used to party really hard, and they would have several country music singers performing at their house!
      Blake would get really drunk, and call Kenny Chesney and threaten him, but Tim McGraw step down, and stopped it all. because he’s an Indian outlaw have parakeet and hot dog

      1. Shot gun? It shoots a pattern. How did it not hit Blake? I feel this might be an incorrect statement. Something must have got mixed up.

  3. I don’t feel there are any ill feelings between the Sheldon’s and Miranda they have all moved on

  4. Well stop singing about each other and acting so childish at same event! Get over it! Move on! If they are happy let it be!! Crap.

  5. Miranda is such a class act but I’m sure she had a little giggle over Gwen’s Feathers and/or purple platforms at a Country Music event.
    Blake made himself look like a victim so he could move on with his fling while filming “The Voice”; Miranda has better things to do, like using that Narcissistic past relationship to write some great material!
    Keep singing Miranda and btw you sure traded up with hubby #2.
