Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert aren’t letting their personal affairs interrupt business. They’re both still signed on to co-headline We Fest, a country music festival in Minnesota.
The newly-divorced couple were scheduled to play the festival since before their divorce was announced, so it’s understandable why some fans might assume one would bow out. However, promoters confirmed to TMZ that the show will go on as planned with both Lambert, 31, and Shelton, 39.
Yet fans shouldn’t expect them to perform together. Lambert is expected to headline on Aug. 7 while her ex-husband will headline on Aug. 8. It’s possible that the two won’t even cross paths while at the festival.
Since announcing their divorce, both have already returned to performing. Shelton played a concert that was cut short by the rain on Friday in Wisconsin. “Come on, who's in charge here? This isn't my week,” Shelton joked, according to E! Online. Lambert returned to the stage on Wednesday to join singer Ashley Monroe for her album release celebration. Neither Shelton nor Lambert directly addressed their breakup.
In fact, the two have made it look like an amicable split, publically. Despite rumors of cheating on both sides, the two have interacted on Twitter to promote Monroe’s latest album. Lambert also joked about the pregnancy rumors surrounding the pair.

As previously reported, the “Voice” coach and the “Little Red Wagon” singer announced their divorce on Monday, the same day it was reportedly finalized. The couple, who met in 2005, broke up after 4 years of marriage. “This is not the future we envisioned,” they said in a statement. “And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
