From Mrs. to Miss! Country music star Miranda Lambert and her supergroup The Pistol Annies released a music video for their new song “Got My Name Changed Back” — and it’s almost obvious that the song is about Miranda’s ex-husband Blake Shelton. Miranda seemingly took aim at Blake in the scathing lyrics to the song — which is about a nasty divorce — and it’s probably one of the most epic country music versions of a diss track.
In the first verse, the 34-year-old sang: “It takes a judge to get married, takes a judge to get divorced / Well the last couple years, spent a lotta time in court / Got my name changed back.” In the second verse, she hints that cheating was the reason for her divorce. “Well, I’ve got me an ex that I adored / But he got along good with a couple road whores.”
While the song could just be a catchy, feminist anthem, there are almost too many similarities between Miranda’s actual divorce from Blake to be a coincidence. Miranda started dating the country music crooner in 2006 and the couple got married in 2011 — but they were only married for four years when they announced their divorce back in 2015 and there have been differing opinions as to the reason for their split.
In the years since their split, both Miranda and Blake took jabs at each other on social media and in their songs — and both of them hinted that one cheated on the other at some point. Back in April, Blake shared a cryptic tweet shortly after reports surfaced claiming that Miranda had moved on from their divorce and was dating a married man (fellow country musician Evan Felker) — and many fans felt it was a direct reaction to the news about Miranda’s new relationship. “Been taking the high road for a long time… I almost gave up,” the 43-year-old tweeted at the time. “But I can finally see something on the horizon up there!! Wait!! Could it be?! Yep!! It’s karma!!”
