Blake Shelton‘s ex-wife, Kaynette Williams (also known as Kaynette Gern), has moved on big time since her marriage to the country music star ended due to “inappropriate marital conduct.” The pair were high school sweethearts in Ada, Oklahoma before getting hitched. As Blake shared in a 2003 CMT interview, he popped the question in a very country fashion.
“I asked her to marry me and she said yes and it was early one morning back in December, and we ended up spending the day with some friends and kind of having a party all day and had a good time. … I got in from hunting that morning, and asked her to marry me, and we went back out hunting,” the singer-songwriter confessed.
Blake and Kaynette were married in a small ceremony in Gatlinburg, Tennessee on November 17th, 2003 during Blake’s break from a tour with Toby Keith. During the early days of his career, Kaynette served as his road manager.
