Country Stars Offer Condolences to Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert
Though celeb couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert have been noticeably absent from Twitter this week in the wake of the passing of Shelton's father, other country stars are tweeting out their condolences to the superstar couple. Shelton's father, Dick Shelton, died Tuesday night in Oklahoma after months of declining health.
David Nail, who recently joined Shelton onstage in St. Louis to sing his chart-topper 'Let It Rain,' shared his well wishes for his friend via Twitter, saying, "@blakeshelton thinking of you and your family during this loss! Lova ya man!" Likewise, Justin Moore, who is opening for Shelton's Well Lit and Amplified 2012 Tour along with 'The Voice' runner up Dia Frampton, tweeted today, "My family's thoughts and prayers go out to @blakeshelton and his family right now. Please pray for them."
This morning, Chris Young hit up his Twitter account to tweet, "Condolences to my friends and their family today..." We're sure the couple are feeling upheld by their country friends' kind and encouraging words. In a statement following Dick Shelton's death, Lambert said, “Thank you to the fans for all the support and prayers. This is a really difficult time for our family, and the most important thing is being together. Tell your loved ones you love them. See you next week.”
Both country stars have rescheduled the remainder of their tour dates this week so they can be at home with family. Shelton's tour will pick back up on Jan. 26 in Columbus, Ga., and Lambert will jump back into her On Fire Tour next week with Jerrod Niemann and Chris Young.
