There's really no easy way to sugarcoat this: love is dead.
Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were country music's pinnacle of love. That illusion is now gone faster than the purses at a Rebecca Minkoff sample sale.
The two former lovebirds announced their divorce earlier this week. And, honestly. If fictional love in country music can't be real, then what is real in this life?
Here's a look back at the rise, and fall, of Blake and Miranda. RIP.
