Blake Shelton is feeling the heat after the country star and his former wife Miranda Lambert both appeared on ABC’s CMA Fest coverage this week.
Though the performances actually happened last month, seeing Miranda and Blake almost back together on screen during the ABC broadcast of the event on August 16 was enough to get fans feeling sentimental about their past romance.
As footage rolled of the twosome’s appearances at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium – which actually happened on different nights – a number of social media users were quick to throw in their two cents regarding the former couple who were married for four years between 2011 and 2015. Many slammed Shelton for “losing” Lambert following their 2015 divorce.
“I wonder how Blake feels when Miranda performs?” country music fan @sydneycolyer tweeted after seeing both stars belt out their hits during the same broadcast, while @luciouslaur added, “Wonder if Blake ever looks at Miranda and thinks ‘man I messed up’… she’s smokinnnn.”
“I wish I knew what Blake was thinking when he decided to leave Miranda,” wrote @KelsieMccubbins during ABC’s CMA Fest showing, though neither has ever explicitly confirmed what caused their sudden breakup.
“Can we all agree that Blake really messed up by losing Miranda?” @PwnNoobs23 then added.
Others watching footage from the popular country music festival then continued to share their feelings on their breakup. They claimed that the former couple may actually have been singing about each other on the stage, as both have made no secret of the fact that their 2015 divorce influenced their music.
