Wikipedia: Jerry Maguire
Jerry Maguire is a 1996 film, starring Tom Cruise, that tells the story of professional sports agent, Jerry Maguire, whose crisis of faith leads him to write a mission statement that advocates better service, fewer clients, and less focus on the bottom line. After he distributes the mission statement to his fellow agents, it gets him fired from his high-profile job. He decides to form his own agency, but is only able to convince one of his clients (played by Cuba Gooding Jr.) to stay with him, and a single employee (played by Renée Zellweger) to join his new company.

You Had Me From Hello Lyrics - Kenny Chesney
One word, that’s all was said,
Something in your voice called me, turned my head.
Your smile captured me, you were in my future as far as I could see.
And I dont know how it happened, but it happens still.
You ask me if I love you, if I always will…......
Well, you had me from “Hello”
I felt love start to grow the moment I looked into your eyes,
You won me, it was over from the start.
You completely stole my heart, and now you won’t let go.
I never even had a chance you know?
You had me from “Hello” 
You Had Me From Hello Lyrics - Bon Jovi
At the mirror you fix your hair and put your makeup on
Youre insecure about what clothes to wear
I cant see nothing wrong
To me you look so beautiful when you cant make up your mind
Its half past eight, its getting late
Its ok, take your time
Standing here my hands in my pockets
Like I have a thousand times
Thinking back it took one breath
One word to change my life
The first time I saw you it felt like coming home
If I never told you I just want you to know
You had me from hello

May 17, 2005
The surprise wedding of country star Kenny Chesney (#9) and Oscar winning actress Renee Zellweger (#43) sparked online interest this week as web users searched for more information about the new couple, pushing them to their first-ever appearances on The Lycos 50. Web users appear far more interested in the groom rather than the bride, as Chesney generates six times more search activity than Zellweger.
The small wedding ceremony took place on the Caribbean island of St. John. Chesney latest hit album, Be As You Are: Songs From an Old Blue Chair, was deeply influenced by his passion for the Caribbean. Turns out Chesney has always had a jonesing for Bridget Jones. Chesney long ago named Zellweger as his favorite actress and was inspired to write his 1999 hit You Had Me From Hello after seeing her in the movie Jerry Maguire. According to a celebrity chat show, the couple met at the Concert of Hope tsunami relief benefit, where Chesney was singing and Zellweger was answering telephones.
