No surprise that the rumor mill keeps on turning, just days before the 2015 CMA Awards! Instead of ignoring the allegations, Dierks Bentley decided to open up to Extra about Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, and rumors of romance between he and Lambert.
Bentley and Lambert have been longtime friends, and toured with one another. It is no mystery that they are close friends, but nothing more. Bentley is married and also friends with Shelton, so there is no way anything “romantic” is happening between them!
Bentley laughed it off, and joked about how he and his wife of 10 years, Cassidy Black, thumbed through Star Magazine reading the story.
“We enjoyed reading it together, we got a good laugh out of it.”
The question that everyone wants answered is: How will the CMA’s be for Shelton and Lambert? Shelton has openly admitted it will be awkward, but we have yet to hear Lambert’s thoughts.
“I think they’ll be alright (Blake & Miranda)… They seem like they are both in a pretty good place.”
Well, no one knows for sure how the two will handle their first public encounter, but it should be an interesting night in country music!
