Kenny Chesney’s ACM performance on April 18 was loved by many. Here’s a look at Kenny’s personal life as we look into who his girlfriend Mary Nolan is and what their dating life is like.
The 2021 ACM award saw several country singers come together for a night of celebration. Kenny also delivered a spectacular performance as he sang alongside Kelsea Ballerini. The pair sang ‘Half of My Hometown,’ and everyone applauded their performance.
Who is Kenny Chesney’s girlfriend Mary Nolan?
Kenny and Mary have been together since 2012. Unfortunately, there is not a lot about their relationship that people know. The two often keep their personal life away from the spotlight and continue to do the same.
However, Mary has been spotted with Kenny on different occasions. The two have even been pictured sharing a kiss. This relationship comes years after Kenny was married to Renée Zellweger. Renée and Kenny got married in 2005, but their relationship came to an end four months after their marriage.
Speaking about the split he said: “I did the only thing I knew to do — I ran. I pushed her away … I didn’t have any clue as to what true marriage meant. I was so used to committing to one thing — music –and then I had to totally commit to a second thing, marriage. I didn’t know how to commit to both of them.”
Kenny Chesney’s gay rumors debunked
The rumors around Kenny being gay started after reports claimed Renée mentioned “fraud” as the reason for their split. However, he denied these rumors and gave more clarification about his divorce.
He said: “The only fraud that was committed was me thinking that I knew what it was going to be like, that I really understood what it was like to be married, and I really didn’t.”
Later, Renée also came forward and justified her actions by stating that the term “fraud” was “simply a legal term and is not a reflection of Kenny’s character.”
She continued: “It made me sad that somehow people were using that as a way to be cruel and calling someone gay as a pejorative, which has fateful consequences. Of course, there’s the bigger-picture problem of why anyone had to make up a story at all.”
