Newlyweds Kenny Chesney and Renee Zellweger booked a dinner date with country star Brad Paisley and his actress wife Kimberly Williams on Monday night (16MAY05) - to get tips about how to deal with a double celebrity marriage.

Best friends Chesney and Paisley and their actress wives had a secret get-together to talk about the pressures of a celebrity coupling.

And WHISKY LULLABY singer Paisley insists his pal and his new bride are going about business in style - and he can understand why the OSCAR-winning actress stayed away from his friend's big night at the ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS on Tuesday (17MAY05).

He says, "I think Kenny wants it to be about his music... I think they're gonna be great because they both know how to handle it."

And Chesney's current touring partner, country newcomer Gretchen Wilson, insists Zellweger has been around her new husband on tour.

She says, "I was doing laundry with her backstage. She's awesome, she's down to earth and really cool, and I think they're lucky to have found each other."
