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 MEETING SHELTON WHEN HE WAS ALREADY MARRIED

"I knew he was married. I knew better, like, this is off-limits ... I didn't know what to do with it, it was, like, my first duet with some other country star, and I didn't know if it was just initial butterflies because of that. I don't know what it was. It was just this draw to each other."
– Lambert, August 2011
