The 2015 CMA Awards had to have been a night of mixed emotions for Miranda Lambert. She had to sit in the front way with Blake Shelton, although the two were seated far apart, at least. She rocked the stage with her performance and even took home an award, for Best Female Vocalist. Yet Gwen Stefani’s rep confirmed just hours before the awards ceremony that she was, indeed, dating Miranda’s ex, Blake.
Miranda posted some poignant lyrics on Instagram:
She also posted a sweet picture expressing her gratitude after the CMAs.
“Horse Power”….. I’m still floating around on a cloud from last night. Thank you so much @cma for celebrating country music in a big way and for letting me be part of it. Today was a day spent reflecting on this amazing life that Nashville and country music fans have given me. And my friends. I’m so grateful #inspired #gypsyvanner #nomakeuptillnextweek #musicismedicine #chrisstapleton #unicorn #ponyportrait

A source had this to say about how Miranda felt about Blake and Gwen:
She had her suspicions but didn’t really know it was a real thing until the announcement last night. But she doesn’t care. She’s divorced and he can date who he wants.”
The source added that she had “an amazing night” at the CMAs, and I guess she did: last night was the SIXTH time Miranda has won for Best Female Vocalist. The girl’s on FIRE.
