Miranda Lambert splits from Evan Felker
(WENN) Miranda Lambert and Evan Felker have broken up, though the singer has assured fans she's happy.
Back in May; it was confirmed that the couple began dating after the 34-year-old musician and his band, the Turnpike Troubadours, joined Lambert's "Livin’ Like Hippies" tour in early February.
Felker's estranged wife Staci Nelson was reportedly blindsided with his sudden divorce filing just days after he had met the 34-year-old "Tin Man" star for the first time, according to a People.
But in a recent interview with The Tennessean, Lambert opened up about her relationship status and revealed she is now “happily single”.
“Love is a hard road sometimes and it’s been a roller-coaster ride for me, but I’m definitely thankful for all the ups and downs because I’ve had some really good songs come out of it,” she explained.
“You’ve got to take the bad parts and put them on paper and then move on to the happy parts.” The couple was last spotted in late July when they were photographed holding hands in New York City ahead of their show at the Jones Beach Theater.
According to People, the Turnpike Troubadours have dropped out of their final performances of Lambert’s The Bandwagon Tour.
The singer, who was previously married to fellow country star Blake Shelton, recently got candid in an interview with HITS Daily Double about heartbreak while discussing her emotional sixth album, The Weight of These Wings.
“I am who I am. I am honest about being flawed,” Lambert explained. “That’s all I can be, you know? I cuss. I drink. I get divorced and get my heart broken. I break hearts.”
