Luke Bryan has a longstanding friendship with Blake Shelton, as well as an ACM-related bromance, so it comes as no surprise that the reigning two-time Entertainer of the Year was asked about the news that left country music abuzz a couple of weeks ago. And, like a true friend, Luke only wishes one thing for Blake and Miranda Lambert — happiness for both artists.
Luke recently told Entertainment Tonight:
A divorce out of the public eye is a tremendous thing to have to deal with, so when they’re in the public eye, you just hope they’re doing good and you hope they’re happy at the end of the day.
Being especially well-versed in the acts of love and loss, Luke was able to empathize with the couple’s loss of one another to divorce, explaining:
In my life, I’ve dealt with a lot of permanent loss where you know you can’t get people back, and I just always pray — certainly in Blake and Miranda’s case — that they’ll be happy, you know, however, whatever shakes out, and anybody going through that. I mean, life is precious and short and you need to find that happy place and get there.
And we certainly wish Blake and Miranda the same. The great news is, they each have wonderful friends to lean on at the moment and, in a trying time, who can ask for more than genuine support?
