When news broke about Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton's divorce last month, there was a third name that got pulled into the mix: fellow country star Chris Young. One report suggested that Young and Lambert (who toured together back in 2012) were having an affair -- a charge Young adamantly denied on Twitter.

Now that almost a month has passed since the divorce news went public, how does Young feel about his name getting dragged into the headlines? "Man, it sucks that I got put in this situation with two people that are my friends," Young told Entertainment Tonight in a new video interview. "This isn't quite how I wanted to end up on the front page. … It's just so weird getting pulled into something like that where it just wasn't true."

He also told ET that he is still close with Lambert and Shelton. "I was in touch with Blake all day that day," Chris said about the day the affair rumors started. "He's like, 'Dude, sorry.' I was like, 'I know man.'"
