After spending 10 years together, Miranda Lambert and her former husband Blake Shelton announced their divorce in 2015.

And at the 53rd CMA Awards in Nashville, Miranda and her new husband Brendan McLoughlin noticeably stood out from the rest of the audience after they didn't clap for her former husband following his performance on Tuesday night, Us Weekly reports.

'The Voice' coach received a huge round of applause for a unique rendition of his hit country number 'God's Country'.

"Everyone stood up to clap for Blake at the end of his performance except Miranda Lambert and her husband," an audience member said. "At the commercial break, they both left their seats." Miranda and Brendan's cold reaction was in stark contrast to how Blake and his partner Gwen Stefani reacted following Miranda's performance of her song 'All Comes Out in the Wash'.

The two singers were apparently "nodding their heads" while Miranda performed, the same witness said. Miranda opened up in the newest issue of Health magazine about her reticence to talk about her marriage to Blake.

"When everyone’s worried about your personal life, it makes you feel like, 'Well, if you could just spend some of that time talking about my actual art, that would be great!'" she said. "But I guess I asked for it, getting into this business. I’m never gonna get used to the public eye in that way."

Miranda and Blake made their separation public in July 2015 -- on the same day as the judge finalized their split. The pair had somehow managed to keep their court filings and separation private and out of the news.

Miranda and Blake had their first big connection at the CMT 100 Greatest Duets special, when the duo was paired up to perform a version of David Frizzell and Shelly West's 1981 hit You’re the Reason God Made Oklahoma.

"I’ve never had that kind of experience with anybody," Blake later said of their duet. "I was a married guy, you know? Looking back on that, I was falling in love with her, right there on stage."
