Country singer Chely Wright comes out of the closet
Country singer Chely Wright has set a record for the history books.
But not for her ability to sing. It has to do with her sexual orientation. In an upcoming issue of People magazine, Wright revealed that she is a lesbian.
Wright is one of the first country singers in history to come out of the closet. She told People magazine why she chose to keep her sexuality a secret.
“There had never, ever been a country music artist who had acknowledged his or her homosexuality. I wasn’t going to be the first.”
The interview with People magazine will be on newsstands May 7. She will also be on “Today Show” on May 5, and she is releasing a book titled “Like Me: Confessions of a Heartland Country Singer.”
Wright has released seven studio albums throughout her career. Her latest album titled ”Lifted off the Ground” was released May 4. Her debut album “Woman on the Moon” came out in 1994.
In 1995, she won Best New Female Vocalist at the Academy of Country Music Awards. Her hit songs include “Single White Female,” “Never Love You Enough” and “Jezebel.”
