Turnpike Troubadours frontman Evan Felker left his wife earlier this year for superstar country singer Miranda Lambert, but it looks like he might not be over his estranged wife, Staci. Evan’s ex, took to Instagram recently to let fans know that he called her 22 times in two days, and she asked if this was the “behavior of a happy person?”
Staci posted proof of the calls that came before she tried to contact him to let him know that she was sick with strep throat. After Evan called all of those times, Staci claims that he ghosted her. She says that she is going to be fine physically and thanked her fans for their questions after she posted a pic of her hospital bracelet.

Staci’s dad, Randy Nelson, told Radar Online, says that his family wants nothing to do with Evan since he left Staci after just one year of marriage to be with Lambert. He added that Staci’s four brothers would stick up for their sister if they ever saw Evan again.
“I’m sure he won’t be around us anymore. There’s no reason for him to be. I live in Arkansas, they live in Northwest Oklahoma, and he lives in who knows where!” said Nelson.
The Turnpike Troubadours were Lambert’s opening act on her Livin’ Like Hippies tour that started in January. Staci filed for divorce from Evan on February 28th in the District Court of Oklahoma County after he left her for Lambert.
Staci cited irreconcilable differences, and in her petition, she wrote that Evan had “completely destroyed the legitimate aims of the marriage and rendered its continuation impossible.”
Evan’s soon-to-be ex-wife hasn’t been shy when it comes to letting fans know how she feels about Lambert. Staci called her a homewrecker when cameras first caught the singer with her husband. Recently, she also talked on Instagram about the “very real #psychologicalwarfare and torture” she went through earlier in the year.

Staci says that when she was with Evan, she made him homemade chicken soup when he was sick, but he ghosted her when she was having health issues. However, he had come calling the week before when she was happy, and she thinks he thought she was “too happy” after going on vacation.
It seems like what she is trying to say is that her ex is jealous, and maybe missing her, but Staci was too busy having fun with her girlfriends on the beach to care. She believes this is what prompted Evan to contact her. But, just a week later when she got sick, she couldn’t reach him.
Staci says she took his calls because that is “what a wife does,” and reminded her followers that she is still his wife, and she has done everything she can to be a good one. She explained that she thought deep down her behavior could change things.
However, after he disappeared when she was sick, Staci says that Evan is “not a real man,” and “certainly no cowboy.” She also said that she would never take Evan back because when she was scared, he was gone.
Miranda Lambert has not commented on Evan Felker’s split.
