Blake Shelton And Miranda Lambert Divorce: Watch Country Superstars’ Top 5 Duet Performances (VIDEOS)
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are divorcing after four years of marriage, and Gossip Cop is taking a look back at happier times by revisiting the couple’s top 5 duet performances. Watch all of the videos below.
Shelton and Lambert’s joint performance history dates back to 2005. The future country superstars met at CMT’s “100 Greatest Duets Concert,” where the duo sang, “You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma.” Though Shelton was still married at the time, he later admitted to instantly falling in love with Lambert.
He and wife Kaynette Williams divorced in 2006, and Shelton began dating Lambert. They wed in 2011, and the couple’s most high-profile duet took place the following year. At the 2012 Super Bowl, the singers performed “America the Beautiful” prior to the big game (see photo above).
In May of 2013, the couple gave one of their most emotional performances when Lambert joined Shelton on “The Voice.” Together they performed “Over You,” which they had co-written about the loss of his brother. This time, though, it was serving as a a tribute to the victims of the 2013 Oklahoma tornadoes.
Shelton and Lambert were on hand at the Grand Ole Opry House in March of 2014, where they had the honor of participating in a special milestone for the legendary venue. As part of the Opry’s 40th anniversary, they did a special duet of “Home.” Shelton originally released the track in 2007.
The soon-to-be exes’ last-ever duet took place just a few months ago, but of course, no one knew it would be their final joint performance at the time. In March, Shelton surprised the audience at Lambert’s Oklahoma concert when he came out on stage to perform an acoustic version of “God Gave Me You” with her. Shelton and Lambert have a ranch home in Oklahoma, which he will now keep as part of their divorce settlement.
In their joint statement on Monday announcing the divorce, the estranged spouses said, “This is not the future we envisioned. And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
