Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton just announced their split, with a judge finalizing the divorce on Monday.
It’s heartbreaking to watch Miranda attempting to put on a brave face as she performed in Wyoming on Saturday. It’s so sad things didn’t work out for the couple.
Just two days before confirming her divorce, Miranda performed at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Festival, where Blake Shelton was also headlining a concert the same weekend.
The 31-year-old country star was about to perform her touching hit song, The House That Built Me, when she broke down in tears and asked the audience to sing along to her lyrics.
Lambert is shown with her hand in her pocket as she wipes away tears.

On Monday, a judge officially signed off on divorce documents. Blake had secretly filed for divorce two weeks ago in his home state of Oklahoma to end their four year marriage.
Miranda and Blake released a joint statement on Monday, saying, “This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy heart that we move forward separately.
“We are real people, with real lives, with real family, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
The couple are said to have a pre-nup in place, with Blake keeping the Oklahoma ranch and Miranda will retain their marital home in Nashville.
There have been rumors for quite some time that the couple were having marital problems.
Life & Style reported in April 2014 that Miranda was desperate to have a baby and that Blake was more interested in getting drunk.
Blake admitted he fell in in love with Miranda in 2005 when they performed a duet of You’re The Reason God Made Oklahoma together. At the time he was married to long time girlfriend Kaynette Gern, who he wed in 2003 and divorced in 2006.
