Chesney Couldn't Deal With Marriage To Zellweger

Country superstar KENNY CHESNEY has opened up about his failed marriage to RENEE ZELLWEGER, confessing he couldn't make his career and life with the actress work together.
The Oscar winner annulled the marriage just a few months after the couple exchanged vows in May, 2005, citing fraud - and neither she nor Chesney have spoken about the real reasons for the split.
But, during an appearance on U.S. TV show Oprah on Friday (09Apr10), the singer/songwriter admitted he couldn't maintain the "house" his career had become and married life at the same time - and his professional life won.
Chesney explained, "I look at it as a box, my life as a box... so everything that I put in ... learning how to play guitar - put in that box, friends I made - I put in that box. My career grew and everything around me, all the awards and all the songs I wrote and all the success, everything, I put in that box. And that box grew to this wonderful house.
"You protect everything and all the relationships and all the people that helped you build that house... I protected that box and I didn't know if I could do both."
But Chesney still has very fond feelings for his ex-wife: "She was a sweet soul, no doubt about it."
But he hasn't given up on marriage and admits he's currently in a relationship and would like "to have a kid".
