Nothing like waiting four years to find out a rumor is true or not.
Back in 2010, Us Weekly reported that Nickelback's Chad Kroeger and Miranda Lambert nearly got into a barroom brawl during her 27th birthday party in Nashville after Miranda wouldn't do shots with Kroeger.
A battle broke out at Miranda Lambert’s 27th birthday party at Winners Bar & Grill in Nashville November 10, when the singer refused to do shots with Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, 36. “Chad kept persisting, and Miranda said no,” says the witness. “He responded she ‘didn’t have to be a bitch about it.’ Then she grabbed the shot and threw it in his face!” Soon after, Lambert’s fiance, fellow country star Blake Shelton, 34, jumped in to attack Kroeger. “But people kept Blake away,” says the insider.
After the rumored fight, Blake's people released a statement that said: “No fists were thrown. Blake is a peacekeeper and doesn’t start fights.”
You would think that after four years the rumored fight would be old news, but Blake brought it back up in the issue of Rolling Stone that Miranda recently covered and showed that, at least to Blake, it's still newsworthy.
