The most poignant moment of the interview came when Cooper asked Kenny if he regretted his brief marriage to actress Renée Zellweger in 2005, which ended up being annulled. “Not at all. Not one bit,” Kenny responded. “Even though I’d sit here and say I wish we’d gotten divorced instead of all that annulment stuff and saved me a lot of public humiliation, I still don’t have any regrets.” Cooper concluded that Kenny’s appeal lies in the fact that, “He’s just this regular guy. He grew up in a small town and sings songs that aren’t traditional country fare.”
