Miranda Lambert reportedly dates 'married musician Evan Felker'
Miranda Lambert hasn’t taken very long to move on from her previous boyfriend. She is now rumored to be dating a married man who also happens to be her opening act for her tour.
Us Weekly reported that the romance between Lambert and Evan Felker just happened. Felker is technically still married to his wife, although, they have filed for divorce.
Lambert, 34, has officially moved on from her ex-boyfriend Anderson East, 29. She’s now rumored to be dating Felker, a musician with the neo-folk band Turnpike Troubadours.
The band has been opening for Lambert since January 2018, for her Livin’ Like Hippies tour. A source said, 'things just happened' as the pair started spending a lot of time together while on the road.

Felker has been married to accountant Staci Nelson since September 2016. She filed for divorce 12 days after Felker filed first on February 16, 2018.
An insider said she had no other choice and was devastated. Staci reportedly cited 'abandonment,' as the reason for the split according to Radar Online.
'They are very much involved.'

The website obtained divorce papers filed at the District Court of Oklahoma County which confirmed this reason. On March 28, 2018, Felker denied the allegations that he had abandoned his wife and demanded that she provide 'strict proof.'
She last mentioned him on Instagram on their wedding anniversary in September 2017. On that post, she wrote that she was looking back on a year of marriage like it was a breathtaking view of the Barcelona beach.
Looking at Lambert’s timeline it appears as though she was technically still dating East until about three months ago. They started dating in 2015 just months after her and ex-husband Blake Shelton separated after four years of marriage.
It's actually not the first time that she has dated a married man. In 2011 she admitted going after Shelton despite knowing he was married.
She confessed to Dateline NBC that she had seen their wedding picture in Country Weekly. Shelton married his longtime girlfriend Kaynette Williams in 2003 and they divorced in 2006.
He and Lambert started dating the same year he divorced his wife.
