Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert move shows after his dad's death

Blake Shelton's father died Tuesday.

Blake Shelton and wife Miranda Lambert have rescheduled concert dates after the death of Shelton's father on Tuesday.

Dick Shelton passed away in Oklahoma "surrounded by loved ones" after a year of declining health, "The Voice" star said Wednesday on his website. No specific cause of death was given, though at last month's American Country Awards, Shelton dedicated his win to his father, who was hospitalized with pneumonia.

"I appreciate your understanding during this difficult time and thank you for all your prayers. Your support means the world to me," Shelton said in the statement. "I love you guys."

"This is a really difficult time for our family and the most important thing is being together," Lambert said in a separate statement. "Tell your loved ones you love them."

Shelton moved shows in South Dakota, North Dakota and Montana from Jan. 19-22 to March 20-23. He'll resume touring Thursday in Georgia. Lambert rescheduled a Charlotte, N.C., show to Wednesday, and pushed weekend shows in Kentucky and Greenville, N.C., to February. 

A photograph of Shelton and his dad was posted to the singer's website Wednesday, in memoriam, and was accompanied by comments from fans expressing condolences.

Miranda Lambert joins Blake Shelton, Dia Frampton for 'The Voice' finale

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert

Miranda Lambert isn’t about to let new hubby Blake Shelton have all the fun on his hit show "The Voice." The country songstress will be joining him for the finale and even plans to perform with his finalist Dia Frampton.

So far, Frampton has wowed with emotional renditions of Kanye West's "Heartless" and R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion," but there's no word yet on what she and Lambert plan to perform together.

"It's been a joy watching my husband grow so attached to his team. Truthfully, I am a little jealous that I am not a coach myself. I can't wait to be a part of it," said Grammy-winning Lambert.

"The Voice" coaches are Shelton, Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green and Maroon 5's Adam Levine. Each one mentors a group of aspiring singers as they compete for a recording contract and $100,000 prize.

Frampton will be up against Beverly McClellan, Vicci Martinez and Javier Colon at the live show on Tuesday, with the big winner revealed the following night.

Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton are married -- 'It's official!'

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are married

Country singers Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton were married Saturday night on a ranch in the Texas Hill Country, after a year of engagement that capped about five years of dating.

"I wanted to be married to Miranda the day I proposed," Shelton, 34, told Us magazine. "Finally, it's official!"

"I'm married to my best friend!" Lambert told the mag after the ceremony. "Looking forward to a lifetime of laughter." The bride reportedly wore her mother's wedding dress.

More than 500 guests -- among them Reba McEntire, Martina McBride, Dierks Bentley, the Bellamy Brothers, Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley and Shelton's fellow "The Voice" judge Cee Lo Green, according to CMT -- gathered at the Don Strange Ranch a ways outside San Antonio.

"So I went to Miranda and Blake Shelton's wedding last night and it was the greatest wedding/reception I've ever been to!," singer Kelly Clarkson wrote Sunday on Facebook. "I feel as though they should renew their vows every year and throw a party as well because everything about it was awesome! Cutest couple ever!"
