Country fans were devastating after two of Nashville’s biggest music legends — Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton — got divorced earlier this year.
It’s clear that Lambert is not having the easiest time post-divorce. During her acceptance speech at the CMAs last night, where she won Female Vocalist of the Year, Lambert said that she “needed a bright spot.” Shelton, however, seems to be having the time of his life.
Immediately following the awards show, Shelton tweeted, “Awesome night tonight. So many great things happening in my life.”
It seems that his new love life has given him reason to celebrate. Us Magazine reported:
Less than two hours before the start of the CMA Awards, Gwen Stefani’s rep exclusively confirmed to Us Weekly that The Voice coaches are officially dating.
“Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating,” a spokesperson for the No Doubt singer, 46, told Us.
The news broke just as the newly divorced Lambert, 31, and Shelton took to the CMAs red carpet for their first solo awards show in years. The awkward tension was acknowledged during co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood’s opening monologue.
After talking about the painful breakup of Kermit and Miss Piggy, Paisley quipped, “On an unrelated note, howdy, Blake!” and the camera cut to a laughing Shelton.
Lambert still had a reason to enjoy the night. Her performance of “Bathroom Sink” was well received, and she took home the CMA for Female Vocalist of the Year. Ultimately, she lost Entertainer of the Year to Luke Bryan, but looked thrilled for her longtime pal.
