Country Singer Chely Wright Comes Out

Country music singer Chely Wright has opened up about her sexuality and confirmed that she is a lesbian.

The 39-year-old singer-songwriter said that she’d never planned to be the first country artist to come out. “There had never, ever been a country music artist who had acknowledged his or her homosexuality,” Chely told People. “I wasn’t going to be the first.”

But now, Chely says, “Nothing in my life has been more magical than the moment I decided to come out.”

Chely will release a memoir, Like Me, later this week and a new album, Lifted off the Ground, soon!
