Evan Felker is in a hurry to move things along with new squeeze Miranda Lambert.
Turnpike Troubadours frontman filed a scheduling order to end his relationship with estranged wife Staci on Tuesday, Us Weekly reported.
He did so out of fear his ex would ‘unduly delay’ their impending divorce, the mag claimed.

However a source claimed Staci was surprised by the move, as she is just as keen to end things as he is.
‘Anyone who actually speaks to Staci knows she has wanted out of this marriage for months,’ the insider said. ‘Evan is the one who disappeared again and changed his phone number.
‘They both planned to end this quietly. Stacy has never wanted to go to court and Evan told Stacy he did not want to either, so there is probably someone a little more powerful dictating all of this.’
On the same day, Staci posted a cryptic message to Instagram, understood to be referring to the broken relationship.
