Talking about his relationship with Lambert, Shelton said, “It depends on what day you ask. Miranda and I have a very interesting relationship. She can get so mad at me that she just wants to punch me in the face, and we’ll say that’s it. Then, 30 minutes later we’re calling each other and acting like it never happened.”

Shelton added, “I think it’s that we’re both artists, and if I want to see her or she wants to see me, sometimes it just doesn’t work out and it’s frustrating. But I think she’s somebody that I’m going to have in my life a long time. She’s one of those few people you meet and have a connection with and you don’t really fully understand it, but you know it’s a pretty big deal.”
Lambert also sang background vocals for Shelton’s cover of Michael Bublé’s song, “Home.” The cover song ultimately ranked No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs Chart.
After dating for a while, the couple decided to take their relationship to the next level. So, Shelton asked Lambert to marry him in May 2010. Lambert was so happy about it that she took to Twitter to share the news with her fans.
Lambert wrote, “Well, Ol’ Blake finally got a brain!!!…and, I didn’t say no!!”
The country singer also said that Shelton popped the question when the pair was spending time in the woods in Oklahoma. Reportedly, Shelton was a gentleman and called up Lambert’s father to get his blessings before asking his lady love to marry him.
Lambert said, “I was so proud of him, we’ve been together five years, so he knew exactly what I wanted but it’s so much more perfect than I could have picked out myself.”
A year later after their engagement, the couple walked down the aisle on May 14, 2011, at the Don Strange Ranch in Boerne, Texas. Celebrities who attended their wedding included Josh Kelley, Kelly Clarkson, Laura Bell Bundy, Reba McEntire, and Katherine Heigl.
