Singer and frontman of Turnpike Troubadours Evan Felker has a new woman in his life! The singer is reportedly in a relationship with Miranda Lambert and is bearing the brunt of it from a lot of people. Here is what you should know from Evan Felker’s wiki.
|About Evan Felker|
|Birth||March 24, 1984 Okemah, Oklahoma|
|Spouse||Staci Nelson 2016-Present|
|Music Group||Turnpike Troubadours|
Evan Felker is the lead singer of the band Turnpike Troubadours. Before his rumored romance started with “Tin Man” singer Miranda Lambert, Felker was married to Staci Felker (Nelson).
Since the news broke out about Felker’s relationship with Lambert, many people are curious to know more about his profession and personal life. And instead of people congratulating Lambert on her new relationship, they are curious to find out how their alleged affair started in the first place.
Before He Became a Singer
Evan Duane Felker was born in Okemah, Oklahoma, on March 24, 1984, which makes his age 34. He explained that his family is very outdoorsy and invested a lot of their time in hunting and fishing.
The 34-year-old never dreamed of pursuing a path in the music industry. In fact, he was planning on becoming an electrician, which is why he attended a tech school. He spent most of his time working in paper mills, factories, Mercury Marines, and food plants.
Talking about his experience, Felker revealed in an interview, “It’s experiences like those that gave me some guts. They make me feel confident in my songwriting because I know I’m writing about people who are real. I’ve had to work with these guys, drink beer with them.”
Evan Felker’s Marriage and Alleged Affair
It is still unclear how and when Nelson and Felker met each other or for how long they were together. The pair got engaged in 2015 and walked down the aisle on September 14, 2016.
Nelson hails from Woodward, Oklahoma and currently lives in Oklahoma City. She is working as a senior manager at EY Careers.
She is very much active on social media. And she would often post sweet photos with her estranged husband on Instagram as well as Facebook.
In fact, she often promoted her husband’s band on her own Facebook page. The couple has been married for a year and a half. Surprisingly, there was no hint of a troubled or broken marriage.
Felker went on a three-date tour with Lambert. According to reports, after the tour ended at the end of January, Felker didn’t return to his wife in Oklahoma and though she desperately tried to get in touch with him, he never responded.
On February 16, Felker received the divorce papers and the reason stated in the papers are irreconcilable differences. Days after the divorce papers were filed, Nelson got to know that Felker was with Lambert.
With no response from his side, Nelson filed her divorce papers on February 28, 2018. In the documents, Nelson accused Felker of abandoning her as the cause of the divorce, and wants alimony.
Reportedly, Felker then got in touch with Nelson and told her that he was with Lambert in Lake Tahoe. Nelson has accepted the fact that her marriage is over and she blames both Felker and Lambert for it.
Nelson is trying to be strong right now and is spending as much time as possible with her friends and family.
Recently, she posted a photo of herself on Instagram with the caption, “PSA: If Staci Felker can make it through this week, so can you.”
Evan’s Affair with Miranda Lambert
According to sources, Felker and his band were the opening act for Lambert’s “Livin’ Like Hippies Tour”, which started in January and goes on until June.
Felker was excited to go on a tour with Lambert, and he jumped at the opportunity. However, the source further revealed that a few weeks before the tour started, Felker began receiving private messages from Lambert.
Seeing @turnpiketroubadours with @timmytychilders & @charleycrockett tomorrow night! @floorecountrystore #colinzamarippaphotography #turnpiketroubadours #reddirt #evanfelker #concertphotography #canon #concertphotographer #blackandwhitephoto #tylerchilders #floorescountrystore #diadegallo #charleycrockett
Reports say the text messages had a professional tone at first. But soon enough, the tone became personal, with Lambert allegedly telling Felker that she wanted to write songs with him.
Eventually, Lambert started sending flirty messages and selfies to Felker, who at first was a little uncomfortable and showed them to his then-wife, Nelson. Felker asked Nelson to come with him on tour, but she couldn’t because of her demanding job.
The source further hinted that Nelson trusted Felker and never in her wildest dreams imagined that he would be unfaithful to her.
When the news about Lambert being with another married man surfaced, people started wondering if Felker cheated on Nelson with Lambert. As of now, neither Felker or Lambert have made any comment on the news, but speculation is rife.
