Many Country Music fans followed Blake's marriage and divorce with Miranda Lambert, yet don't know very much about his first wife (Kaynette Williams) . . .

Blake Shelton married his first wife Kaynette Williams in 2003 and second wife Miranda Lambert in 2011.   While many fans followed Blake’s marriage and divorce from Miranda Lambert, they don’t know much about Blake’s first love.   Here is the story behind both of Blake Shelton’s marriages.

Blake Shelton’s First Wife (Kaynette Williams)

Long before Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton had a first Ex-Wife by the name of Kaynette Williams (orginally Kaynette Gern).  Blake Shelton and Kaynette Williams were Ada, Oklahoma high school sweethearts.   They got hitched in a small ceremony in Gatlinburg, Tennessee on November 17th (making her officially Kaynette Shelton).

 Blake was only 15-years-old and Kaynette Gern was just out of high school when the duo met for the first time in their hometown of Ada, Oklahoma.  Kaynette served as his longtime sweetheart and road manager before they married and were officially divorced three years later in 2006.

The powerful country duo spent four years of marriage in the spotlight before Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert divorced on July 20, 2015.   Dual country careers does not make for an easy marriage.   Blake Shelton was busy touring and completing his role on The Voice TV Show while Miranda Lambert also had a busy tour schedule.   Miranda discussed her divorce from Blake in this interview.

Blake Shelton is now 40 years old (born June 18, 1976) and the popular ‘Voice’ coach is currently and very publicly romancing fellow entertainer Gwen Stefani.   Gwen is now 46 years old (born October 3, 1969).   Blake appears to be very happy dating Gwen Stefani and recently appeared on the Ellen Show gushing about his former No Doubt girlfriend.

“It’s been just an eye-opener to be with someone like her,” Blake sincerely expressed. “Believe it or not, I mean, you think Gwen Stefani and No Doubt and she is literally maybe the most normal person that I’ve ever met in my life. It’s been good for me to be with somebody that’s so grounded and just a good human being with a great heart.”

 

We wish Blake the best of luck of finding happiness.   Remember to “share” this with other Country Music fans.
