Before that, Lambert made waves for having an alleged affair with Evan Felker — the lead singer of Turnpike Troubadours — who Lambert was on tour with. The couple reportedly got together on her Livin’ Like Hippies Tour that began in January 2018.
Us Weekly reported at the time that Felker's wife Staci Nelson “was devastated” when she learned of the alleged affair and “had no other choice but to file for divorce.” Felker filed for divorce on Feb. 16, while Nelson filed 12 days later.
Meanwhile, Lambert, 35, was allegedly still in a relationship with singer Anderson East when she met Felker, according to the outlet, citing a source.
Staci, 34, is now breaking her silence about Lambert's surprise 'I dos' on social media.
During an Instagram Story Q&A discussion on March 6, one of her followers asked: “How are you able to hold your tongue on ‘you know who’s’ quickie wedding!!!!”
To which Staci responded, “I have had a year’s training of holding my tongue."
"I did think the dress was really pretty and I wish she would call me and tell me how it was so easy for her to get over my ex because it hasn’t been so easy for me," she added.
Felker and Lambert split in August 2018. She told The Tennessean, “Love is a hard road sometimes and it’s been a roller-coaster ride for me, but I’m definitely thankful for all the ups and downs because I’ve had some really good songs come out of it. You’ve got to take the bad parts and put them on paper and then move on to the happy parts.”
Six months later Lambert married her current husband, a 27-year-old NYPD officer. They met when she performed on "Good Morning America" in November 2018.
