Miranda Lambert Cried on Stage Before Divorce Announcement

Miranda Lambert fought back tears as she sang "The House That Built Me."

Just days before announcing her split from Blake Shelton, the 31-year-old country singer broke down a bit during her Cheyenne Frontier Days concert in Wyoming. "The last thing someone wants to do is cry in front of 19,000 people," she told the audience as she tried to keep from crying while singing the ballad.

"The House That Built Me" has a lot of meaning for the former couple. Shelton, 39, was originally supposed to record the song but upon Lambert hearing it, she wanted to record it instead.
