The 32-year-old singer got teary-eyed while singing “Over You,” the 2012 duet she co-wrote with her ex-husband, Blake Shelton, during her concert at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, Illinois, on Friday.
The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend singer started dating the Boys ‘Round Here hitmaker in 2006 and they tied the knot in May 2011.Their divorce was finalized in July 2015 and Blake began dating his fellow Voice judge, Gwen Stefani, 46, four months later in November.
Blake and Miranda wrote the song about a personal experience The Voice judge had as a teenager, when his older brother was killed in a car accident. But with a verse including ‘You went away, how dare you, I miss you. They say I’ll be ok, but I’m not going to ever get over you,’ it’s hard to dismiss the innuendo.
Lambert couldn’t hold it together while belting out the song, choking up multiple times during the passionate performance. She relied on the crowd, many of whom were in tears themselves, to help her finish the tune on a strong note. The waterworks were also in full force later in the show, when the country crooner performed “The House That Built Me.” Again, fans cheered her on by singing the touching lyrics.

Miranda Lambert’s show was full of emotion. Concertgoers later took to Twitter to share their opinions on the Chicago-area stop of Lambert’s Keeper of the Flame Tour, writing things like, “Every time I see @mirandalambert I cry” and “@mirandalambert made me cry from her crying.”
