The 26-year-old has already topped two of Forbes' End of the Year lists so far in 2016 — highest paid female in music and highest paid celeb under 30 — but she can officially add another superlative to her résumé: Highest paid musician!!!

Following a long and accomplished career in the industry, Kenny was finally given the coveted award to the delight of the audience and his many fans. Considering Chesney has been churning out hits since 1994, we think the homage is well-deserved!

After Peyton Manning gifted the star the award, he delivered a passionate and emotional acceptance speech praising all the people who helped him make it to the top.

Not only was the 48-year-old message's incredibly humble, but so was his final parting words to the crowd:

"Thanks for giving me an amazing life."

Aww… how sweet!

Congrats, Kenny!

Renée Zellweger is an open book these days!

In an interview with the Advocate, Renée discussed her failed marriage to Kenny Chesney and why she annulled their 2005 brief marriage over "fraud", a charge which led many to suspect the country singer was gay.

Now Zellweger is FINALLY speaking out on the issue and and naturally we're all ears!

According to the actress, the scandal isn't something she conveniently "forgot" about… a claim which is just CRAZY considering the drama of the split still follows Chesney to this day! The scandal was a big deal back in 2005!

The beauty went on to dish:

"I forgot about that. It's a pretty big thing to forget, isn't it? That made me sad. 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."

Well we do agree the 47-year-old on that point. It's never okay to use someone's sexuality as an insult!

So, why didn't the star ever speak out on the issue if it made her feel so bad?
