Monroe and Danks wed in an intimate ceremony at the luxurious Blackberry Farm in Walland, Tennessee, in 2013. The singer’s BFF Miranda Lambert served as the maid of honor and wedding planner, while Lambert’s then-husband Blake Shelton officiated the ceremony. “I am the happiest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” Monroe told Us Weekly at the time. 

It seems that Monroe may be back in the studio soon with her Pistol Annies bandmates Lambert, 33, and Angaleena Presley. In a Billboard cover story last week, the “White Liar” singer promised that the trio would be coming out with a new album in 2018.
