The country singer shocked fans with news of her marriage Saturday evening with a post on social media.
“In honor of Valentine’s Day I wanted to share some news,” Lambert wrote. “I met the love of my life. And we got hitched! My heart is full. Thank you Brendan Mcloughlin for loving me for…. me. ❤️
The news was confirmed by Lambert’s publicist.
Lambert, known for hit songs including “The House That Built Me” and “Mama’s Broken Heart,” was most recently linked to Turnpike Troubadours singer Evan Felker. The relationship soured over the summer of 2018.
“Love is a hard road sometimes and it’s been a roller-coaster ride for me, but I’m definitely thankful for all the ups and downs because I’ve had some really good songs come out of it,” she told The Tennessean. “You’ve got to take the bad parts and put them on paper and then move on to the happy parts.”
Ironically, the singer’s most recent radio single is about divorce. Her trio Pistol Annies, which also includes Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, released “Got My Name Changed Back” near the end of 2018. The song is from their highly anticipated album “Interstate Gospel” that is available now.
Lyrics include: It takes a judge to get married, takes a judge to get divorced| Well the last couple years, spent a lotta time in court| Got my name changed back (yeah yeah).
Lambert and fellow country singer Blake Shelton were divorced in 2015 after four years of marriage.
If Lambert’s love life is fuel for her songwriting as she said, the singer’s next album should be an award-winner.
