Blake Shelton seems to confirm the rumor that Miranda Lambert once got in a bar fight with Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger

Miranda Lambert rolling stone

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.

And it's a concert I don't think I will ever forget. 

I remember being a kid in the 80s and my mom love, love, loving her some Kenny Rogers, so I was pretty happy when I was able to score two tickets and bring her along for the fun ride. I have four singers/groups who stand out strongly from my really young days: Bob Seger, which I remember because my mom went to his concert while I was in the hospital having my tonsils removed; Rod Stewart because I was in love with his highly-inappropriate-for-a-youngster Do Ya Think I'm Sexy; and The Gatlin Brothers because All The Gold In California was my favorite song and I sang it constantly. But then there was Kenny Rogers who I had a special place in my heart for because he was my mom's favorite singer, which definitely rubbed off on me, and I grew up thinking that he and I were related. See, my maiden name was Rogers and so in my young mind Kenny Rogers was some sort of a long lost uncle of mine.
