Kenny Chesney will be a familiar face at tonight’s 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards.
While many know him for his country hits, few may be aware that Chesney was married to Renee Zellweger for a brief period of time in 2005.
Read on to learn more about the couple:
1. They Were Married for Four Months
Chesney and Zellweger met in January 2005, married in May, and split in September. After just four months, Zellweger filed for an annulment.
In 2010, Chesney discussed his marriage with Oprah. He said that he believes the relationship fell apart because he “panicked.”
Hollywood Life writes, “‘I panicked,’ he admitted to the queen of daytime April 9, before going on a fairly confusing rant about his theory of life, which includes a ‘box’ that he feels the need to ‘protect.’ But amidst all his rambling, Kenny did manage to produce one coherent, and lovely, thought — that after everything was said and done, he still considers Renée to be a ‘sweet soul.’”
