Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert gave up on marriage, but they were smiling at the 2015 Country Music Awards — with The ENQUIRER having already covered reports of Blake having romanced nine women during his marriage to Miranda. But that's funny-business-as-usual on the country scene. Here's a Top Ten of more cheating country tales that The ENQUIRER has told...
Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood: The married country couple swears that their friendship didn’t turn romantic until six months after Garth divorced his wife of 15 years, Sandy Mahl, in 2001. The ENQUIRER still remembers how natural the pair sounded singing about cheating with the hit “In Another’s Eyes” in 1997 — and we caught Garth in 1993 confessing to being unfaithful to Sandy multiple times!
Jason Aldean: The man who drove the “Big Green Tractor” drove his marriage into the gutter when he got caught making out with “American Idol” alum Brittany Kerr in a Los Angeles bar back in 2012. The ENQUIRER was there to document the resulting $20 million divorce from his wife of 12 years!
Randy Travis: The ENQUIRER caught Randy and his manager/wife Lib — 18 years his senior — fighting and feuding in 2010 after the country star ran off with his dentist’s wife! Mary Beougher now lives with Randy on his Texas ranch. Lib might’ve had the last laugh, though, with Mary having to clean up after Randy when he wandered naked into a convience store. Sadly, Mary’s duties got more intense after Randy suffered viral cadiopathy followed by a stroke.
Keith Urban: It'll be a cold CMA Awards night for country crooner Keith — because The ENQUIRER just caught him canoodling with a sultry blonde behind Nicole Kidman’s back! The legendary bad boy was seen sneaking into a luxury California hotel with a stunning blonde, while wife Nicole was nowhere to be seen. “He looked like he was on cloud nine as he escorted the tall beauty into his hotel,” an eyewitness told The National ENQUIRER.
Dolly Parton: Country’s biggest superstar has busted out a lot of scandals to cover! The ENQUIRER has reported on the long-married Dolly’s possible lesbian relationship with longtime assistant Judy Ogle, and rocked her marriage this year with reports of her long affair with muscleman Mark Kiracofe. Sadly, Dolly’s also been making recent ENQUIRER headlines with her many health concerns.
Willie Nelson: Willie’s womanizing nearly got him killed! When his second wife, Shirley Collie, found out he was expecting a baby with Connie Koepke — who was destined to become Wife No. 3 — she tried to commit suicide. But when her attempt failed, she cornered her cheating husband with a gun and threatened to blow him away!
Lyle Lovett: Fans were shocked when “Pretty Woman” Julia Roberts married this offbeat country idol in 1993 — and then amazed when The ENQUIRER caught him with another woman! Julia was regretting not being a “Runaway Bride” after we snapped Lyle and songbird Kelly Willis leaving a hotel together, and the couple split in March 1995.
LeAnn Rimes & Eddie Cibrian: Former “CSI: Miami” star Eddie kept The ENQUIRER busy in 2009 as he busted up two marriages by lusting after LeAnn. LeAnn was married to backup dancer Dean Sheremet at the time, while Eddie ended his marriage to “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville. The ENQUIRER then reported how LeAnn ended up in a “treatment facility” over Eddie staying in touch with former mistress Scheana Marie. Give ‘em credit, though — the couple’s still together!
Trace Adkins: He sings about how “Ladies Love Country Boys,” and The ENQUIRER proved it when we busted Trace cheating on his wife Rhonda with nearly a dozen women. Rhonda soon filed for divorce — but decided to stay hitched on the advice of her dear mom Jewell Forlaw, who said : “I believe in ‘till death do we part!”
Shania Twain: Finally, a country star who got heartbroken instead of breaking hearts! Shania was practically retired when her world was shattered over her cheating husband — and veteran album producer — Mutt Lange. He didn’t just leave Shania for another woman in 2008. He fell in love with her best friend, Marie Anne Thiebaud. In a happy ending worthy of a country song, though, Shania then found happiness with Marie-Anne’s husband, Frederic, and married him in 2011.
