Miranda Leigh Lambert is a singer and songwriter from the United States who was born on November 10, 1983. She debuted in early 2001 with her self-titled first album, which she self-released on her own. She placed third in the singing competition Nashville Star, which was broadcast on the USA Network, in 2003. She is a member of the Pistol Annies, along with Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, who started the band in 2011. The Grammy Awards, the Academy of Country Music Awards, and the Country Music Association Awards have all recognised Lambert’s achievements. More Academy of Country Music Awards has been bestowed on Lambert than any other performer in history.
“Me and Charlie Talking,” “Bring Me Down,” “Kerosene,” and “New Strings” were among the songs from Lambert’s second and major-label debut album Kerosene (2005), which was certified Platinum in the United States. Each of the four tracks is charted in the top 40 of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart. In early 2007, she released her second album, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Three of the album’s singles (“Famous in a Small Town,” “Gunpowder & Lead,” and “More Like Her”) charted in the top 20, with “Gunpowder & Lead” earning her first top ten entry in July 2008. In September 2009, she released her third album, Revolution. Two of its tracks topped the Hot Country Songs chart: “The House That Built Me” and “Heart Like Mine.”
Miranda Leigh Lambert was born in Longview, Texas, on November 10, 1983, to Rick and Bev (née Hughes) Lambert, and grew up in Lindale, Texas. Her great-grandmother, Lucy Miranda, inspired her name. Her younger brother is the only sibling she has.
Her parents met at Southern Methodist University’s summer camp, when Bev was a counsellor and Rick was an on-campus undercover narcotics police, and they married a few years later. Rick is a former Dallas cop who was a member of Contraband in the 1970s, a country-rock band.  Rick and Bev went on to work as private investigators and even helped on President Bill Clinton’s impeachment case. Her family lost everything as the oil crisis crippled Texas’ economy.
When they first met in 2005, it was:
Lambert and Shelton had known each other for a long time before being matched up to sing the 1981 country song “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma” during the CMT 100 Greatest Duets special in September 2005.
Their on-stage chemistry was praised by many. Shelton himself stated that he had never had that kind of immediate chemistry with anyone. He remarked, “Right there on stage, I was falling in love with her.”
The only issue was that Shelton was still married to his first wife, Kaynette Williams, and Lambert was engaged to country artist Jeff Allen McManus.
However, once you’ve figured it out, you’ve figured it out. Shelton filed for divorce from Williams five months after that performance, and Lambert ended her engagement – but both maintained that their budding romance was the reason for the subsequent breakups.
Shelton was the “old-school and flawless” gentleman who got down on one knee in the middle of a romantic stroll in 2010, asked Lambert’s father for his approval and popped the big question. Of course, the “Bluebird” singer enthusiastically replied, “Yes!”
Not only that, but Shelton blew Lambert away with the nicest diamond-and-platinum engagement ring he could find. Lambert commented, “It’s so much more perfect than I could have chosen out myself.”
In May 2011, the pair married in Boerne, Texas, in front of 600 family members and friends, including some of country music’s biggest performers, including Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson, who sang a song during the reception.
So, what was the reason behind Blake and Miranda’s split?
Been taking the high road for a long time.. I almost gave up. But I can finally see something on the horizon up there!! Wait!! Could it be?! Yep!! It’s karma!!

While the ex-couples have never said why they divorced, rumours have long circulated that one or both of them cheated. People magazine denied allegations that Blake had strayed from his marriage after the couple announced their divorce, citing a source who described him as an “extremely faithful and loving spouse.”
After Blake cryptically tweeted about “karma” amid allegations that Miranda had started seeing then-boyfriend Evan Felker while he was still married in April 2018, rumours that Miranda had cheated on him gained traction.
“For a long time, I’ve been taking the high road..” Blake commented on Twitter, “I almost quit up.” “However, out there on the horizon, I can finally see something!!” Wait!! Is it possible? Yep!! It’s the law of the universe!!”
Blake’s 2016 song “She’s Got a Way with Words,” which is about a cheating ex, sparked accusations that Miranda was unfaithful as well. The infidelity charges have elicited no response from Blake or Miranda.
Blake and Miranda, where are they now?
Blake’s agent announced in November 2015 that he was dating Gwen Stefani, his Voice co-star. The announcement came six months after the country singer finalised his divorce from Miranda and three months after Gwen filed for divorce from ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
Gwen “saved my life” following Blake’s breakup with Miranda, according to Blake. “Who else on this planet could comprehend going through a public divorce with another musician?” In 2016, he added, “You can’t fathom the similarities in our divorces.”
Meanwhile, Miranda shocked fans when she revealed in February 2019 that she had secretly married New York City cop Brendan McLoughlin. Miranda made an unusual remark regarding her breakup with Blake in November.
Miranda Lambert Divorce Settlement:
Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton have not been financially harmed as a result of their split. Blake’s papers, which he filed on July 6, were published online on July 21 and indicate that sealing the divorce cost only $193! Blake Shelton, 39, and Miranda Lambert, 31, divorced far sooner than we’re used to seeing in Hollywood, thanks to a prenuptial agreement and the fact that they had no children. The couple announced their breakup just two weeks after the “Sangria” singer filed, and a judge signed off on the papers on July 20.
