That the spirit! Miranda Lambert is keeping a positive outlook on life a day after ex-hubby Blake Shelton officially stepped out with new girlfriend Gwen Stefani. The country queen is telling her fans she’s ‘reflecting’ on her amazing life. Read on for her inspirational words.
Miranda Lambert, 31, isn’t letting the news of Blake Shelton‘s new relationship with fellow The Voice co-star Gwen Stefani, 46, get her down. She’s revealing how grateful she is for her “amazing life” that her friends and fans have given her. It’s good to hear she’s sounding more upbeat, after she was blindsided by Blake showing up hand in hand to CMA after parties with Gwen just hours after confirming they were involved.

“Horse Power” she captioned an Instagram post Nov. 5, wearing a red baseball cap and snuggling up to a horse. “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,” Miranda noted. She took home the coveted Female Vocalist of the Year award at the CMAs for the sixth straight year.
She continued, “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,” followed by a series of hashtags including #inspired #gypsyvanner #nomakeuptillnextweek #musicismedicine #chrisstapleton #unicorn #ponyportrait.
We’ve gotta love that she snuck in the Chris Stapleton shout-out in her message, especially since Chris beat out Blake in the Male Vocalist of the Year category. When Miranda accepted her award during the CMAs, she was not only wearing a glittery Chris Stapleton shirt (aka Blake’s biggest competition this year) but she even thanked Chris in her speech! “Justin Timberlake, Chris Stapleton…thank you very much…I’m gonna go home and practice,” she said. Before thanking those two singers, Miranda thanked her fans saying, “Thank you….I needed a bright spot this year.” As we know, the blonde beauty has had a rough couple of months since her split from Blake, only to be made worse by having his new romance announced on the night she had her big win!
HollywoodLifers, were you shocked that Blake revealed his new romance on Miranda’s big night?
