“Thank you for letting me use my heartbreak and share it with you guys…” Miranda said. Her team, who came up on stage with her to accept the award, also elaborated on Miranda’s comments. One team member, Frank, said that it was her ability to tell the truth in her lyrics that made her album a hit. “I just want to thank Miranda for being willing to look deep in her soul and bringing her life into her art,” he said. “And guys, any young songwriters out there, tell the truth. It’s more interesting.” Hmm… There was definitely purpose behind all of their post-award speeches and fans are even getting in on the action!

Miranda and Blake split in July 2015 after four years of marriage. They tied the knot in 2011. Although their divorce blindsided a lot of fans, the two were reportedly having issues long before they announced their split. Now, Blake is in a PDA-filled relationship with Gwen Stefani, 47. Miranda also moved on with fellow singer, Anderson East, 28.
