The CMA 2015 nominations list is out and recently divorced Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton received four and two nominations respectively. The former couple was happy with the news and decided to celebrate it in their own ways.
Miranda took to Instagram to show fans that she celebrated the CMA nominations with a small shopping indulgence. The 31-year-old “Little Red Wagon” singer posted a photo of a Tiffany's shopping bag and a pink Converse sneaker.
"In honor of CMA nomination day I did a little celebratory shopping! My two favorite colors... Pink and Tiffany Blue! #CMA #dressup #dressdown," the country singer captioned the photo.
Miranda is nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year categories in this year’s CMA.
Meanwhile, her ex-husband Blake congratulated fellow country music singer Ashley Monroe, who featured on his single "Lonely Tonight", which is nominated in the Musical Event of the Year category.
Congrats to my @ashleymonroe for our CMA nomination this morning!!! This calls for a drink!!!

Miranda is enjoying her single life post the split with Blake. The “Over You” singer is "having a blast flirting," but she does not want to mingle at the moment.
“She may have lost a husband, but Miranda gained a ... new outlook on life. She's dressing sexier, exercising again and smiling more than ever,” the source said. “She lost part of herself trying to be what Blake wanted. Miranda feels her new look and attitude is just what the doctor ordered. She's having a blast flirting and being single.”
On the other hand, Blake’s friend and fellow musician Luke Bryan recently shared his views about his buddy’s divorce.
"You know, we've certainly talked about it … and I just always pray -- certainly in Blake and Miranda's case -- that they'll be happy, you know, however, whatever shakes out, and anybody going through that,” he said. “I mean, life is precious and short and you need to find that happy place and get there."
