7 years after Miranda Lambert and country star Blake Shelton split, she reflected on the intense public interest in her personal life after their split. attention was too much to deal with. “I wasn’t ready for that,” Lambert recently told The USA Herald mid-interview. “I don’t think anyone is. And sometimes it’s not nice, but I think you have to take it with a grain of salt.”
Fortunately, the “Actin’ Up” singer has her music as a way to shut down the bad press within the media and get her version of the truth of the story to her fans.
“I’m a singer-songwriter, so luckily I can tell my whole truth,” she added. “I will not lie in my music.”
Lambert and the “Drunk” singer started dating in 2006. After 5 years in 2011 in Texas, the couple married at Don Strange Ranch in Boerne.
Then, in July 2015, the couple’s separation was announced, after four years of marriage, amid comments of infidelity that were never confirmed.
The same year in November, Shelton moved on with his “The Voice” co-star Gwen Stefani, and the two married last summer. After short-lived relationships with Anderson East and The Turnpike Troubadours lead singer Evan Felker, Lambert also found her happily ever after with NYPD officer Brendan McLoughlin, whom she married in 2019 after only a few months. months of courtship
“I feel like I’ve been through enough in my life to know what I don’t want,” she told The USA Herald of the abundance of romances. “So when I know what I want, I grab it right away.”
McLoughlin has even appeared in several of his wife’s music videos, including “If I Was A Cowboy,” “Tequila Does (Telemitry Remix),” and “Settling Down,” a song inspired by him.
With a supportive partner and a red-hot career, Lambert accepted that she has never been happier.
“I’ve grown and learned a lot about myself and I think at some point you start to establish who you are,” he told The USA Herald in the interview. “I feel at peace with myself.”
