Chesney: 'It's Been A Tough Year'
Country star Kenny Chesney is finally starting to recover from the heartbreak of his split from Renee Zellweger, nearly a year after their brief marriage ended. The couple married in May last year (05) after a whirlwind courtship, only to have the marriage annulled just four months later. Chesney hit the road on a 66-date tour to promote his album The Road And The Radio, giving him some time to reflect on the break-up. Chesney claims he coped after his marriage ended by telling himself, "'I'm not the only guy who has gone through this." He says, "That didn't make it any better at the moment. I'm happier right now than I've been in a long, long time. Well, a year. "A long, long year. When your life takes on a life of its own, you've got to let it play out. "What I did was play some songs and write some songs and spend time around people on the road."
