Miranda Lambert’s Comments on Songwriting With Blake Shelton Have Reportedly ‘Shifted Things’ in Relationship

by Emily Morgan

Miranda Lambert’s ex, Blake Shelton, has revealed he only has positive things to say after she made comments about their song, “Over You.” Recently, the “Bluebird” singer opened up about what it was like crafting the emotional song. 

“My ex-husband, Blake, had lost a brother, and it’s one of those moments where even if you’re married to someone, sometimes you find something new about them,” she on Mar. 28, during an interview on Apple Music’s Essentials Radio. She added, “Dudes don’t open up about things, but he started telling me about the experience of it all. And I was like, ‘Have you ever written about it?'”

After Lambert’s comments came out, Shelton offered his response. According to a source with In Touch Weekly, “The Voice” panelist had nothing but appreciation for his ex-wife. 

“Miranda and Blake aren’t burning up the phone lines just yet but her recent comments about writing together have definitely shifted things,” the insider said about her interview. According to the close source, “Blake thought it was a nice gesture.” 

Blake Shelton Reacts to Lambert’s Comments

The former flames created the soulful track while they were still a couple in 2011. Yet, “Over You” isn’t about a former romantic relationship that went awry. Instead, it’s about the devastating loss of Blake Shelton’s older brother, Richie, who tragically died in a car accident in 1990. 

When Lambert first learned about her then-husband’s tragic loss, she asked if he had ever journaled about the event. “I would never try to write your story because I didn’t live it, but maybe I could help because I’m an outside perspective, but I feel your pain talking to me right now,” she told Shelton. 

After they released the heartbreaking song, it earned them “Song of the Year” at both the Country Music Awards and Academy of Country Music Awards that year. 

Their flame may have burned out, but Shelton and Lambert will always share that fond memory. “I’m so glad we shared that song and that it helped his family heal, to have that together,” Lambert said. 

“Enough time has passed and they’ve both moved on, so there’s nothing really to be upset about anymore,” they added. “Miranda does believe time heals everything and what good does it do to dredge up the past anyway. Unless she’s writing a song about it.”

Both Shelton and Lambert will perform at this Sunday’s 56th annual American Country Music Awards.
