However, it doesn’t seem that has stopped Lambert from taking a dig at her ex-husband while performing at the 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards.

On Sunday, Miranda Lambert had the chance to perform several times at the 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM). For one performance, the country musician wore a sexy lack, Bao Tranchi sequined jumpsuit.

The artist sang a high energy rendition of her single "Little Red Wagon." However, one thing was different from the performance - the singer changed a lyric in the song.

The track originally has the line, "I live in Oklahoma." That was where Lambert stayed with ex-husband and fellow country singer Blake Shelton, 42, when they were married.

Oklahoma also happens to be the place where Shelton was born and raised. However, for her performance, she changed the line to "I got the hell out of Oklahoma."

It’s should be noted that this wasn’t the first time that the singer has sung the line.

However, most of the time it happened was during performances where Shelton wasn’t present. It’s believed he was there when she sang it this time and her new husband, Brendan McLoughlin, 28, was also present too.

Also present for the performance was Shelton’s longtime girlfriend and singer, Gwen Stefani. The two started dating after he got divorced.

However, conflicting reports state that Shelton and Stefani might have already left the MGM Grand Garden Arena during the commercial break before Lambert took to the stage. Either way, viewers noticed and took to social media to share their opinions.

Others thought it was funny while another group felt Lambert shouldn’t have thrown shade on her ex.

Lambert and her new husband made their debut public red carpet appearance together at the 54th annual ACM Awards in Las Vegas. The musician wore a curve-hugging neon green dress paired with a metallic clutch for the occasion.

Her husband kept things simple in a black suit.
