Kaynette and her husband, Blake, tied the knot on November 17, 2003. They had a very small ceremony in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Before and throughout their wedding, the couple had a deep affection for each other.

Shelton revealed his love for her to Country Weekly in December 2003, saying that she has an aura around her that prevents him from deviating. He explained, 

"I knew Kaynette was the one just because I can't explain it. I can't say it's because we get along or because of the way she looks. It's just something I feel — you know what I mean? It's nothing more than just knowing you're right."

Shelton's love for her, however, could not last for a long time. After being together for three years, Kaynette filed for divorce from her husband in 2006. Kaynette accused her husband of "guilty of inappropriate marital misbehavior." Their fans were shocked to hear the news, but their divorce went smoothly without any drama. 

However, the reason for their divorce was Miranda Lambert. After the divorce, Shelton admitted to falling for Miranda while performing together at a concert in 2006.

Blake realized that the pain of his divorce was as difficult as the time when he lost his brother. He didn't let it stop him from dating Miranda Lambert, though. Blake and Miranda openly dated and got married in 2011. 

However, after Lambert refused to have a family after six years together, their marriage started to fail.

Where is Kaynette Williams Now? 

After her divorce from her ex-husband, Blake, she vanished from the media. 

It appears that she was looking for a more peaceful and serene setting to help her cope with her grief over the separation.

According to a 2011 interview with the National Enquirer, Williams moved to Oklahoma from Tennessee following the divorce. 

But her ex-husband and his then-wife had also relocated to Oklahoma, making it difficult for her to remain in the same city.

 "After Blake and I split up, I moved from Tennessee back to Oklahoma. But then Blake and Miranda moved back there to a neighboring town, and it just felt like Oklahoma wasn’t big enough for all of us.”

So she again moved to Kansas to start from scratch. 

Today, she works as a math facilitator in an elementary school in Kansas and resides in Great Bend. She is now married to Cody Joe Scheck, a rodeo champion and world record holder in steer roping.
