Blake And Kaynette’s Wedding And Divorce
In an interview with Country Weekly soon after their private wedding ceremony, Blake revealed that he knew Kaynette was his soulmate from the first day he set eyes on her. He added that it was more about the way he felt about her than about her beauty or the fact that he got along with her very well. As good as Blake’s description of his love for Kaynette was, their marriage didn’t last long, as they ended up getting a divorce three years later, in 2006.
Blake was quick in shaking off the dirt from their divorce, as he got married to country music singer, Miranda Lambert, on the 14th of May, 2011 in the city of Boerne, Texas. In an interview with a magazine in 2013, the country music star admitted that his marriage to Kaynette was not ideal, as he married someone more of a pal than his soulmate.
Kaynette revealed during an interview in 201with The Enquirer, that she relocated back to Oklahoma from Tennessee, after the divorce. However, she didn’t feel comfortable living in Oklahoma as her ex-husband and his new wife settled down in a town close by.
