Miranda Lambert: Throwing Shade at Blake Shelton at the CMAs?!

by at .

It's been over two years since Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert divorced, and by all accounts, the relationship between the two singers has remained mostly amicable.

These days, Miranda is engaged to Anderson East, and rumors about Blake and Gwen Stefani getting hitched seem to surface at the rate of about one per week.

But that doesn't mean there's never any bad blood between the former first couple of country.

And in the grand tradition of George Jones and Tammy Wynette, and every couple that's ever broken up but continued to reside in the same trailer park, Blake and Miranda occasionally air their grievances publicly.

The 2017 Country Music Association Awards were held last night, and some folks think Miranda seized the opportunity to throw some shade at her ex.

Lambert was one of the night's big winners, taking home the prize for Top Female Vocalist, and shining on the red carpet in one of this year's most stylish ensembles.

But it was her performance of "To Learn Her" that made Miranda the talk of the ceremony.

Her soaring vocals gained the most attention on social media, but some fans were more interested in what they saw as a subtle shot fired against Blake Shelton.

One line in particular drew a good deal of attention, as many feel that Miranda sent a clear message by rolling her eyes when she delivered the line: 

"If you take her, you might hate her and be left with just a ray."

Needless to say, it's not hard to see how that line could be interpreted as low-key trash talk.

Of course, there's also a chance that it was all in good fun.

As we said, the history of country music is filled with feuding lovers who mined their troubled relationships for song lyric material.

Hell, George and Tammy even recorded a few albums together!

We'd suggest Blake and Miranda do the same, but we're not sure how that would go over with Gwen.

She strikes us as the type who'd like to leave the past in the past.
