Less than a month after announcing their split, country music superstars, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are officially divorced. Although the news was initially shocking, Shelton already seems to be taking the situation in stride, and he seems ready to take advantage of all the things the new chapter of his life has to offer. Now back on the market for the first time in 10 years, Shelton probably won’t be available for long. The Grammy nominated artist is one of the most well-known names in country music and he’s built a fan base that includes people from all around the world. With that being said, there’s definitely no shortage of women who would like to try their luck with the star. Here are 10 potential matches for newly single, Blake Shelton.
2015 has been a great year for Amy Schumer. The actress/comedian has found success on both the big and small screen, and has managed to take the spotlight in an industry that is typically dominated by men. Schumer, who has a hilarious sense of humor, has no problem speaking her mind and she’s definitely strong and independent. As they say, laughter is the best medicine, and after a rough break up, sometimes all a person needs is someone who can really make them laugh.

Gwen Stefani, who has been married since 2002, recently announced that she and her husband Gavin Rossdale have separated. As a newly single woman, Stefani may be interested in getting back in the dating game, and as you probably already know, romances in the workplace are pretty common. Stefani, who works with Blake Shelton on the voice, already seems to have good chemistry with the country music star, and it’s not too far-fetched to think that they may hit it off romantically.

Sheryl Crow may be a little older than Blake Shelton, but she’s another star in the music industry who knows all about life in the fast lane. The two have worked together in the past and they definitely seem to have a good chemistry while collaborating. Plus, Crow has never been married and perhaps Blake Shelton could be the right person for her to tie the knot with.

Evan Rachel Wood
Evan Rachel Wood is one of the hottest young stars in Hollywood and she’s been single since divorcing her husband Jamie Bell after just 19 months of marriage. Although Wood has appeared in dozens of on-screen productions, she’s maintained a pretty low profile and seems to genuinely be a nice person. If Shelton is looking to date outside of the music business, she could be a great choice.

January Jones is well-known for her role in the TV series Mad Men. As a single mother, Jones has worked hard to protect both her and her son’s privacy. Her dating history has been kept low-key and while she seems intent on keeping it that way, a relationship with Blake Shelton might not be a bad thing – especially since Shelton will soon be a single parent himself.

British pop star, Ellie Goulding, is currently one of the biggest names in the music industry. Although she’s only released two albums so far, she’s already captured the attention of millions of people all around the world. Although Goulding’s career has yet to reach the height of Shelton’s it certainly seems to be on its way, and there’s nothing better than a power couple who works in the same industry. It might not be half bad to hear a track featuring both Blake and Shelton, and these two would definitely light up a red carpet together.
Australian born actress/singer, Clare Bowen, is best-known for her role on the popular ABC series, Nashville. Bowen, who has been working in the industry for more than 10 years, has found success as both an actress and a singer and she seems to be gaining momentum. The young multi-talented star seems to have it all, and she would be the perfect catch for anyone. Her voice alone would probably be enough to sweep Shelton off of his feet and it goes without saying that they’d make a very good-looking couple.
