Miranda Lambert got emotional during a concert while performing a song she cowrote with ex-husband Blake Shelton .
While singing her 2012 single “Over You” during a Tinley Park, Illinois, show on Friday, the country star broke down in tears and relied on the crowd to help her finish the tune. The former couple wrote the song about a tragedy The Voice judge experienced as a teenager when his older brother died in a car accident.
The 32-year-old singer told the audience she was having a rough night, as she was feeling hormonal and had been suffering from cramps. “I told you I was a mess,” Lambert told the crowd as she wiped away tears. Later in her set, she began crying again during “The House That Built Me.”
“I won’t forget that day,” he says of when Stefani learned of his surprising split. “I looked over at Gwen – who I didn’t really know – and she had these huge tears in her eyes. I thought, ‘Wow, she feels super bad for me!’ ”
He didn’t know that she was quietly in the process of separating from husband Gavin Rossdale after two decades together. After Stefani opened up about her relationship’s end, the bond between the two judges quickly grew.
Poor Miranda. Have you ever cried months after a difficult breakup?
