Kenny Chesney 'Knocked' By Renee Split

Kenny Chesney thinks his failed marriage to Renee Zellweger was like getting injured at sport.

The country singer - whose four-month-long marriage to the actress was annulled in 2005 - admits he dealt with their separation the same way he would if he got "knocked down" during an American football game.

He said: "There ain't nothing you can do about it. Just hang on for the ride. Now I look back on it as just another way of getting knocked down on the football field."

Despite their split, Kenny is adamant it hasn't put him off the idea of getting married again and starting a family one day.

He told Parade.com: "Not at all. I hope that's in the cards for me one day.

"I hope I have kids one day. But I don't wake up every day and miss that in my life."

Kenny's relaxed attitude to relationships comes from his mother Karen.

He explained: "She was dating someone once and broke up. And this stayed with me. She said, 'Kenny, I just want you to know I'd rather be miserable alone than miserable with somebody else.' That makes a lot of sense to me."

However, the 42-year-old star - who is currently single - is wary about dating someone new.

He said: "The world is a different place now. I mean, if I go out with a girl, there is a possibility that she's going to get up from the dinner table and go to the bathroom and use twitter to tell everybody what she's doing. And the next thing you know, everybody's got a play-by-play of what you're having for dinner. That would make anybody uncomfortable."
