Kenny Chesney: “I Am Incredibly Happy”

Singer-Songwriter Comments on His Marriage to Renee Zellweger

Kenny Chesney says his marriage to Oscar-winning actress Renee Zellweger seems like a dream.

“I am incredibly happy,” Kenny Chesney said in a written statement released Tuesday (May 10) to CMT News. “I may well be the luckiest man alive … to be so in love with someone who is so perfect for me. It’s just hard to imagine that I’m not going to wake up.”

Chesney and Zellweger were married Monday (May 9) in the U.S. Virgin Islands on the island of St. John, where Chesney owns a home. The small ceremony was attended only by the couple’s family and close friends.

With the wedding surprising celebrity-watchers in both Nashville and Hollywood while creating headlines internationally, the media is expected to pay close attention to Chesney’s upcoming tour dates as he continues his Somewhere in the Sun tour with Gretchen Wilson and Uncle Kracker. The tour resumes Thursday (May 12) in Little Rock, followed by dates Friday in Oklahoma City, Saturday in Dallas and Sunday in San Antonio.

Chesney is also scheduled to perform next week on the Academy of Country Music Awards show in Las Vegas. The event takes place May 17 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino.
