In Their Own Words: The Highs and Lows of Miranda Lambert & Blake Shelton's Marriage

What the former couple had to say about the pressures of celebrity, their lives apart and their love for each other

ON THE PRESSURES OF CELEBRITY

"Blake and I are nothing like Elvis and Priscilla [Presley], obviously, but with anyone who reaches that level of celebrity, it creates a pull on the couple. You are being pulled apart. Literally. Blake's person is pulling him that way, and my person is pulling me this way. You get to that point where you're both saying, 'Where is our time? We need us time.'"
– Lambert, April 2014
