Marquette, Michigan – August 12th, 2015 – I asked this question on-the-air today during Mornings on 103-FXD. What is happening to our sweethearts in country music? They’re all breaking up on us! NO! Take for instance Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton. Several weeks ago these two called it quits. This break up was the most shocking out of the recent three breakups in country music. To me, they seemed very happy together and the chemistry appeared to be there. I guess I was wrong. I’m glad to see these two are still getting along well, despite their marriage coming to an end.
Then a couple weeks ago Reba McEntire and (former) husband Narvel Blackstock called it quits after nearly 30 years of marriage. Narvel was both the husband and manager of Reba. Is it just me or did these two possibly grow tired of each other? Just like Blake and Miranda despite calling it quits these two
will continue to remain on good terms (at least that’s what they claim).
Then last week I was shocked to learn that Jake Owen and (former) wife Lacey Buchanan were calling it quits. This was another shock to me simply because these two had a child just several years ago together and, again, seemed so happy together. The spark seemed to be there. A young attractive couple splitting up.
These breakups in country gotta make you wonder what’s next? I’m scared for the future of country music! I mean… 3 breakups in less than a month?! Is there some kind of trend happening right now? Who’s next? 🙁 Be on the lookout…
