It's been a whirlwind of a year for Blake Shelton!
After the show Blake took to Twitter and wrote: "Awesome night tonight. So many great things happening in my life. Congrats to @ChrisStapleton!!!! Long time coming brother…"
"Gwen and Blake are longtime friends who have very recently started dating," a spokesperson for Gwen Stefani announced just hours before the show.
But that didn't mean there wasn't any awkwardness. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, the show's hosts, made light-hearted jokes at the former country power house couple's expense.
And during her win for Female Vocalist of the Year, Miranda Lambert thanked the fans and said she "needed a bright spot this year."
Here's to hoping that both Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton find happiness after this tough year.
