Luke Bryan Talks Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert’s Divorce: ‘You Hope They’re Happy at the End of the Day’
Luke Bryan knows what it's like to deal with heartache -- and what it's like to have every detail of your life scrutinized. The "Kick the Dust Up" singer says that his wishes for his famous friends Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, who announced their divorce in late July, are simple.
"A divorce out of the public eye is a tremendous thing to have to deal with, so when they're in the public eye, you just hope they're doing good and you hope they're happy at the end of the day," Bryan tells Entertainment Tonight.
The country star adds that he and Shelton, who have hosted the ACM Awards together since 2013, "have talked a little bit." Back in 2010, Bryan and Lambert toured together, on Lambert's Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour.
"At the end of the day, I want people happy," Bryan tells Extra. "In my life, I've dealt with a lot of permanent loss, where you know you can't get people back, and I just always pray — certainly in Blake and Miranda's case — that they'll be happy, ya know, however, whatever shakes out, and anybody going through that."
"I mean, life is precious and short," Bryan continues, "and you need to find that happy place and get there."
