It has been almost six years since country music superstars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert made public the news that they were divorcing in July of 2015. Even still, a significant number of country music fans are curious about the facts surrounding one of the most high-profile celebrity breakups in recent history.
It looked as if the couple had the best possible connection one minute, and the next, their marriage was suddenly beyond repair the next minute. What exactly is the situation at this point? Let’s take a look at the history of Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s relationship, as well as the many factors that contributed to the dissolution of their marriage.
Even though Lambert and Shelton had known each other for quite some time, they had the opportunity to get to know each other much deeper when they were paired up to perform the 1981 country hit “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma” during the CMT 100 Greatest Duets special in September of 2005. The special was dedicated to the 100 greatest duets in country music history.
A great number of people were blown away by how beautiful their connection was on stage. Even Shelton was the first to acknowledge that he had never had immediate chemistry with anybody. He remarked, “Right there on stage, I was falling in love with her.” “I was falling in love with her.”
The only issue was that Shelton already had a wife in Kaynette Williams, while Lambert was engaged to be married to country artist Jeff Allen McManus at the time.
However, once you know, you always know! Shelton filed for divorce from Williams five months after that performance, and Lambert called off her engagement in the same amount of time; nevertheless, both of them refuted the claims that their budding connection was the reason for the subsequent breakups in their respective relationships.
At the 2007 CMT Music Awards, which took place in 2007, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton made their relationship officially known to the public for the first time by posing together. Is it possible that the manner in which they met is a portent of a charming relationship that is destined to fizzle out in the long run?
Shelton was the “old-school and ideal” gentleman who proposed to Miranda Lambert in the midst of a romantic walk in 2010. He first sought the approval of Lambert’s father, then went down on one knee and popped the question. The singer best known for his hit “Bluebird” responded with an enthusiastic “yes” of course.
In addition to this, Shelton was successful in impressing Lambert by selecting the most beautiful diamond and platinum engagement ring possible for her. Lambert said that “it’s so much more perfect than I could have chosen out myself,” referring to the item in question.
In May of 2011, the pair married the wedding in Boerne, Texas, in front of 600 family members and friends, as well as some of the greatest artists in country music, such as Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson, who each graced the stage of the reception with a performance.
So, why did Shelton and Lambert decide to end their marriage and get divorced?
The world of country music did, in fact, come to a screeching stop in 2015 when the genre’s reigning king and queen announced that they were divorcing after four years of marriage and that the divorce was formalized on the same day. This news sent shockwaves across the country music community.
Lambert and Shelton issued a joint statement in which they claimed, “This is not the future we envisioned.” “And thus, it is with sorrowful hearts that we go our separate ways.”
Different reports have been going about nonstop about the former couple’s split up, despite the fact that they never publicly stated the cause for the breakup.
According to a previous claim by TMZ, Lambert apparently became frustrated because Shelton spent most of his time in Los Angeles. Shelton started working as a judge on the NBC reality television series The Voice in 2011. This position required him to be present in Los Angeles throughout the production of the program. Shelton moved to Los Angeles in 2011. In point of fact, Shelton said that he had acquired a sizable “home away from home” in the Los Angeles area so that he could be there anytime he was not in Oklahoma.
Unfortunately, Lambert had a strong aversion to Tinseltown, and as a result, she found it quite challenging to go all the way across the country just to spend a day with her husband. Sometimes they would only see one other for a single day. When you include the touring schedules of the duo, you might argue that it’s a formula for catastrophe waiting to happen.
In addition, a person close to Lambert disclosed to TMZ that the circumstance caused the singer to “feel like an abandoned wife,” and in the end, the source said that “This is no way to live.”
It has been stated that the fact that Shelton really wanted children while Lambert continued to put off having them has placed a strain on their relationship. During the course of an interview, Shelton once disclosed that the prospect of being a father was something he was “looking forward to more than anything else.” On the other hand, Lambert was of a different opinion. Since they are both at the pinnacle of their jobs, Lambert is of the opinion that having children just so they may bring them up on a train or a bus is not the best use of their time.
Of course, allegations of dishonesty have also been floating about as of late. According to sources cited by TMZ, Shelton had suspicions that fellow artist Chris Young, who had served as Lambert’s tour opener in the past, was involved in an affair with his girlfriend Miranda Lambert. After the claims were made, Young issued a denial.
Shelton’s 2016 smash song “She’s Got a Way with Words,” which is an angry song taking aim at a cheating partner, fanned the accusations even more that Lambert had been unfaithful. The song is about a woman who has a way with words.
On the other side, there are reports circulating that Shelton was reportedly having an affair with country singer Cady Groves. Groves has categorically denied that this was the case, and she has even said that it has negatively impacted both her career and her personal life.
Neither Lambert nor Shelton has commented on the charges of infidelity that have been made against them.
In point of fact, the divorce that Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton finalized in 2015 was a development that none of us saw coming. Both country superstars have gone on with their careers despite the fact that many fans may have been heartbroken to see it happen and may have even never stopped supporting them. Brendan McLoughlin, a former member of the New York Police Department, is now Lambert’s husband, and the couple is living happily ever after. At the same time, Shelton has just been engaged to the famous pop singer Gwen Stefani, and the couple is apparently planning to tie the knot during the summer of this year.
