Blake Shelton Is Bracing Himself for 'Awkward' Post-Split CMA Jokes (VIDEO)

Blake Shelton & Miranda Lambert CMAsRunning into an ex can be pretty uncomfortable in even the most mundane setting, but now imagine it happening in front of thousands of people -- and then being televised. D'oh! No wonder Blake Shelton says the Country Music Awards could be a bit "awkward" for him and Miranda Lambert, who split this summer after four years of marriage.

Say what you want about this country crooner, but it sounds like he's ready to take it on the chin for the sake of some good TV. When the show airs on Wednesday, November 4, Shelton is prepared for host Brad Paisley to bring his A-game when it comes to jokes at his and Lambert's expense. 

Don't you love it when he says, "You have to address the elephant in the room"? It's great that he's able to laugh at himself and move on.

In a way, hearing him say this really humanizes him, doesn't it? Celebrities often seem unrelatable, but here this star is experiencing the same kind of emotions we've pretty much all felt at one point or another. And you have to imagine Miranda's in the same boat.

You can't help but wonder if ratings will be through the roof as fans tune in to hear what Paisley has in store. 

Maybe Shelton's feeling generous, since it's rumored that he's moved on and is enjoying the company of his fellow Voice cohost Gwen Stefani. Wonder if Paisley will touch on that in his act! Stay tuned to find out.
