Blake Shelton on Split from Miranda Lambert: ‘We’re Buddies’.

“Our whole thing was, ‘We are going to be cool about this,’” Shelton said Wednesday on the Bobby Bones syndicated radio show. “It is what it is.” He added that he and his 31-year-old ex are still “buddies” two months after breaking up. Country star Blake Shelton is glad he filed divorce papers in Oklahoma because his split from wife Miranda Lambert was finalized before word of the big break-up leaked to the press. The two former lovebirds have both mostly gone back to their normal schedules, with Shelton resuming his role as a judge on the “The Voice” and Lambert returning to the stage for her “Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour.” “It happens so fast,” Shelton said on-air Wednesday. “Miranda and I didn’t have any kids, and we had a prenuptial agreement, whatever we had.

Once we filed for divorce, it was over in a nine- or 10-day waiting period.” Ever the jokester, Shelton also touched on the prank he pulled on paparazzi after their divorce was public: pushing a baby stroller in the parking lot of The Voice set. “I was like ‘Screw those guys; I’m going out there and am gonna give ’em something to talk about,'” Shelton said of the prop he took from set. “So I said, put that bottle of vodka in that stroller, and I’m gonna push it out to the car.” Back to work on the NBC singing competition after its premiere Monday, the country star – who celebrated his five-year anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member on Tuesday – is single … but not quite ready to mingle. “I think he’s open to another relationship in the future, but just not now,” a friend tells PEOPLE. “He’s friendly with everyone, but he’s not carrying on with women. By the time anybody knew anything, it was over… It was done.” The stars agreed Shelton would keep his Oklahoma ranch, which the couple had used as its marital home, while Lambert received the keys to their retreat in Nashville, Tenn.

The clean break is a far cry from the reigning champion of country music divorce tunes, Tammy Wynette’s “D-I-V-O-R-C-E,” in which a woman grapples with the toll a split is taking on her son, who is too young to understand such complicated concepts. “And he thinks C-U-S-T-O-D-Y spells fun or play/I spell out all the hurtin’ words/And turn my head when I speak/’Cause I can’t spell away this hurt/That’s drippin’ down my cheek.” It was done.” On a lighter note, he also discussed the occasional pitfalls of vying for contestants through blind auditions on “The Voice,” which kicked off its ninth season Monday and won a reality-competition Emmy Award the previous night. “Man, there’s been times, trust me, where you hit [the ‘I Want You’ button on the swivel chair],” he said, “and turn around and [think], ‘Whoa!
