Miranda Lambert holds hands with her (legally married) boyfriend
Not hiding! Miranda Lambert stepped out publicly with new boyfriend Evan Felker for the first time this week. The pair held hands during an outing in New York City on Wednesday night.
Lambert has been seeing the Turnpike Troubadours singer for several months, but the new coupling has been full of drama. Felker is still legally married and allegedly blindsided his wife, Staci Felker, by filing for divorce in February — days after going on tour with Lambert. His band opened for the “Tin Man” singer for three dates at the beginning of February during her “Livin’ Like Hippies” tour. People reported Lambert and Felker traded “flirty” text messages before hitting the road.
Neither Lambert nor Felker has commented on their relationship — but Staci has. His estranged wife has made it clear on social media that she felt jilted and “ghosted.” The Felkers were married for a year-and-a-half.

Staci said she’s “moving forward” amid the PDA photos of Lambert and her husband.
Said what I needed to say to those I needed to see it and archived the last post, because it doesn’t make me happy or serve me any longer. #movingforward #selfcare #smilingagain #ranchy

Lambert, who divorced Blake Shelton in 2015, recently opened up about heartbreak. “I am who I am,” she said in an interview in June. “I am honest about being flawed. That’s all I can be, you know? I cuss. I drink. I get divorced and get my heart broken. I break hearts.
“I can’t do or be that [perfect] anymore, or it’ll drive me crazy,” she added.
Lambert and Felker are back on tour together. She posted videos on her Instagram Story of the Turnpike Troubadours performing Thursday.
