Chris has been a friend of the couple for some time, and thus found the reports surprising. Chris said he was "shocked" that the rumors of infidelity had anything to do with him.
As for Blake and Miranda-- Chris revealed they're both doing well. He even added that Blake laughed off the cheating reports.
"I have not seen them, [but] I've definitely texted and called both of them," Chris explained. "They're both good since [the last] time I've heard from them. As good as you can be."
"I was in touch with Blake all day that day," Chris added, referring to the day the cheating rumors began to circulate. "He was like, 'Dude, sorry.' I was like, 'I know man.'"
As for his friendship with Blake and Miranda, Chris says this incident hasn't tarnished their relationship.
"They're both really great friends still, so it's just one of those things," Chris said. "That's kind of a byproduct of doing this and being in the spotlight I guess."
"I don't think anybody shies away from being in love," Chris shared. "I think that's one of the great feelings. I mean obviously I've written a lot of songs about being in love and lot of songs falling out of it. The falling out of it never makes you scared to get back in it."
Chris' upcoming album I'm Comin' Over comes out in fall, and his I'm Comin' Over Tour kicks off Oct. 22 in Savannah, Georgia.
