One of the biggest stories to come out of Nashville this year was Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert‘s divorce. The news made a big splash in the tight-knit country music industry, but songwriter Jessie James Decker revealed to PEOPLE Now that it may not have been quite the surprise to the industry’s insiders that it was to the rest of us.

“Everything that you’re seeing is what’s happening,” Decker explained. “I think maybe some people saw it coming, maybe some people did not.”

“It was definitely sad, because people loved them together,” the musician, 27, continued, “but maybe they’re just better off going their separate ways.”

“I think some people probably knew about some things for a long time,” Decker added somewhat cryptically. “But, you know, maybe not.”
