Relive The Moment Blake Shelton And Miranda Lambert Fell In Love

Let's remember the good times.

Posted on

After four years of marriage, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are getting a divorce.

The couple announced their split in a joint statement to the Associated Press, saying: "This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter."

Arguably the most famous couple in country music, their split marks the end of an era.

It began 10 years ago during CMT's 100 Greatest Duets concert, when the duo performed live together for the first time.

Their duet of David Frizzell and Shelly West's classic "You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma" remains one of the most moving in country history.

Because something magic happened on that stage. Something that looks a lot, in retrospect, like two strangers falling in love.

It would be some time before the couple got together in real life — Shelton was still married to his first wife at the time — but there's no doubt that their love story started on that night.

That story may be over now, but fans of the couple will always have "Oklahoma."
