Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert Grew Up Here
I was sad to hear Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are getting divorced. Usually when I hear celebrities are calling it quits it doesn’t bother me, but I had hopes for this couple. I’m a fan of The Voice and watch it every season with Blake Shelton being my favorite judge.
Country Living magazine article 9 Country Music Stars Share Photos of their Childhood Homes includes Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert homes.
This is where Miranda Lambert grew up in Lindale, Texas. She said “there was no central heat or air conditioning. They had a tire swing, chickens and pigs, and everyday after school her Mom put out Milk and cookies.”
If you watch The Voice you know Blake Shelton talks about being an Okie. This is his childhood home is Ada, Oklahoma. He “spent 18 hours a day in the summer at the creek catching turtles, crawdads, lizards and snakes.”
Here’s me and Mom in the front yard. It must be an Easter photo since I am all dressed up in a fancy dress, coat and hat. It doesn’t show much of the house, but I remember Dad building that farm-style fence in the background.
Like Miranda Lambert, I remember growing up with no air conditioning and wonder now how we got through the summers. We also had a tire swing that hung from a weeping willow tree all us kids in the neighborhood had fun swinging on. My Mom always had Milk and homemade cookies for us after school too.
Just like Blake Shelton, my brother spent a lot of time catching turtles, snakes, salamanders, etc. I recall one stinky day he even got sprayed by a skunk! We had a large aquarium built into a wall with fish and later on pet lizards lived in the tank.
I heard rumors why Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton are splitting up. I don’t know if they are true. I read Miranda Lambert was crying in a recent performance of “The House That Built Me,” so this is a painful time for the couple.
