Kenny Chesney is a workaholic

Kenny Chesney

Country superstar Kenny Chesney is always trying to hone his talent. To do so, he’s got to work hard, leaving little time for any other hobbies.

“I’m a self-proclaimed workaholic. All I do is work,” he tells OK!. “I’m always working on my craft as a songwriter, working on making the show better, working on trying to find that best song.”

But when he does take time off, he keeps it pretty simple. “I flush all the road dust off me on my boat in the Caribbean,” he says. “And I go home, spend time with my family, sit on the couch, watch television and eat Doritos.”

The Knoxville, Tenn. native is now giving one lucky fan the chance to visit him in his home state, see him in concert and visit the places that inspired him growing up, in conjunction with MasterCard’s Roots of Rock Sweepstakes. Log on to for your chance to hang out with Kenny!

Kenny Chesney is a Saint

Kenny Chesney

Kenny Chesney turned sports hero at American football team the New Orleans Saints’ pre-season practice last week – when he won the team a Sunday off.

Saints coach Sean Payton, who is a friend of the singer, invited Chesney to join the footballers at Thursday’s on-field work-out, and promised to give the players a day to themselves if the visitor could catch a punt.

Chesney, wearing helmet, pads and a Saints shirt with his name on the back, failed to keep a hold of his first two attempts, but caught the third – much to the delight of his team-mates for the day.

The country star, who was a top high school footballer in Tennessee, was then saluted by Payton, who insisted the singer was part of the team.

A thrilled Chesney said, “I quit growing too young to ever think about getting to have a shot at playing in college, so this is about as much fun I can have.”

Kenny Chesney is knocking down a tabloid report that he’s engaged.

“Kenny Chesney is not getting married. He’s not engaged. He’s not planning on being engaged any time in the near future,” his rep tells People. “In fact, he was surprised by the news and isn’t sure how or why anyone would’ve gotten that idea. As he recently told PEOPLE, ‘I enjoy being a bachelor. I enjoy everything that comes along with it.'”

Chesney, 40, recently won the coveted entertainer of the year award at the Academy of Country Music Awards in Las Vegas.

Kenny Chesney: Renee Zellweger Couldn’t Make Me Happy


Kenny Chesney claims nothing about his marriage to Renee Zellweger made him happy.

The singer married ‘Bridget Jones’ Diary’ star Renee in 2005 but the couple split just four months later.

Kenny now admits he wasn’t ready to tie the knot, but says Renee is “the sweetest soul I’ve ever met”.

Describing the brief union as a “life lesson”, he added to People magazine: “There was nothing that made me happy. You can’t fall in love as hard and fast as we did and not have some residual effects.”

Kenny also admitted that though he “enjoys” being a bachelor, he would consider marriage again.

He said: “I thought I was ready once before, but I wasn’t. If I get married again, I’m going to give it 150 per cent.”

Kenny and Renee have remained good friends since the split, and have been spotted having dinner together on several occasions.

After they split, the couple had their marriage annulled, with Renee citing fraud.

She later expanded on the reason, saying: “The term is simply legal language and not a reflection of Kenny’s character. I would personally be very grateful for your support in refraining from drawing derogatory, hurtful, sensationalised or untrue conclusions.”
