Blake Shelton’s marriages have included two important women in his life. 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 then were officially divorced three years later in 2006.

Here is another image of the happy couple at their wedding ceremony in 2011.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.
Miranda Lambert moved on to date fellow Country Singer Anderson East for two years. She then dated Evan Felker for 6 months. The Turnpike Troubadours frontman Evan Felker served as the opening act for Miranda’s recent tour. Evan and Miranda Lambert have parted ways just six months after their romance started, his divorce from estranged wife Staci Nelson Felker was recently finalized, and he’s reportedly having issues passing a painful kidney stone. The Turnpike Troubadours canceled their final appearances on Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town‘s co-headlining The Bandwagon Tour. Miranda Lambert has stated that she is now “happily single“.
Blake Shelton is now 42 years old (born June 18, 1976) and the popular ‘Voice’ coach is currently and very publicly romancing fellow entertainer Gwen Stefani. Gwen is now 48 years old (born October 3, 1969). Blake appears to be very happy dating Gwen Stefani and 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.”
Gwen and Blake have been dating now for over three years and appear to be going strong. Blake is a frequent topic of Gwen’s social media updates.
We wish Blake the best of luck of finding happiness. Remember to “share” this with other Country Music fans.
