For years, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert had an iconic union of love, romance, and musical prowess. But when their marriage came crashing down, the pair's feud lasted way past the time of divorce.

Lambert and Shelton are country music powerhouses in their own rights, and they have several accolades to show for it. They both have connections to Nashville, but unlike Shelton, born in Oklahoma, Lambert was born in Northeastern Texas.

As a young girl, Lambert grew up listening to and getting accustomed to country music. As a teenager, she learned to play the guitar and also worked on her vocals. She grew up in a family of two detective parents, but they loved music.

While speeding up her high school education, Lambert released her first album, "Miranda Lambert" in 2001. The body of work did not gain traction, but it did set her on the path.

After she gained public attention in 2003's "Nashville Star," Lambert was signed by music executives, and she released her second album, "Kerosene." From there, she began to gain more attention scoring a Grammy nomination.

Lambert released her seventh album, "Crazy Girlfriend," and this was the game-changer. After that, she went on to bag Grammy awards and several Academy of Country Music awards.

The "The House That Built Me" crooner met her first husband, Blake Shelton, as her career kept making waves. The pair were married in 2011 and soon became a country music power duo.

However, it did not take long for cheating rumors to plague their love life. There were speculations that Shelton was an infidel, and there were also other factors causing rifts in their marriage,

By 2015, the two were headed for the divorce court, announcing in a joint address that they had separated, and it was amicable. The divorce was also finalized in the same year. However, the issues between them were far from over.

News got out that Shelton had an affair with then-upcoming singer Cady Groves. There were also rumors that Lambert wasn't ready to have kids, unlike Shelton, who wanted to start a family. Inside sources shared:

"He is eager to have children, but she really enjoys not being tied down. I think they both were off on what the time frame would be."

According to TMZ, Shelton insinuated that his ex-wife had cheated on him with a fellow country singer. However, during an album listening party, he later revealed that he was unsure why his marriage with Lambert ended.

While speaking with the Los Angeles Times, Lambert referred to her divorce as "horrible" and something that died. The star added that she was shocked about the attention their failed marriage got.

The two have since moved on with other partners, and while Lambert is married to former NYPD officer Brandan McLoughlin, Shelton is married to fellow singer Gwen Stefani.

It is noteworthy that Stefani's name came up a few times during Shelton's messy after-divorce drama with Lambert. Lambert reportedly felt they were together amid the difficult times in their marriage.

Lambert and McLoughlin got married in January 2019 and wasted no time settling into their roles as newlyweds.

The duo attended award shows together, and even when there were split rumors, they debunked them through a rep. Since their wedding, McLoughlin has proved to be a supportive husband.
