Could Chely Wright Be The May 5th Reveal?

TMZ.Com is reporting that they have learned the big "coming out" announcement planned for this week will be ... country star Chely Wright.

There's been a big buzz over the last week as to which celeb was announcing he/she was gay and we knew it was going to be unveiled in PEOPLE mag next week.

Wright has a book coming out this week as well -- it's called, "Like Me."  And she has a CD coming out too -- called "Lifted Off the Ground."

The 39-year-old singer scored a #1 country song back in 1999 with "Single White Female," when she was named Academy of Country Music new artist of the year.

Wright is the first major country artist ever to come out.  She has been romantically linked to a number of celebs, including Brad Paisley.

This is a big deal in the country world.  Chely is rolling the dice on her career ... it's unclear how traditionally-conservative country fans will react. She lists Howard Bragman as her publicist, who was the mastermind behind the Chaz Bono story. 

Do you think TMZ solved this mystery or shall we keep digging?

"...scored a #1 country song back in 1999" That was literally last century. This makes me too tired even to yawn. In fact, this is so much a non-story it explains while People had to drum up all the drama over who it would be!!! GB, please go back to delicious Blind Vices.

I've never heard of Chely Wright. Is she well known in country music (other than for her award in 1999)?

Hokey said...

Not a country music fan, and never heard of her, but still this is huge news in the conservative world and if it makes one right winger who likes her think twice about being gay or gives some comfort to a sexually repressed teen in the bible belt, I say woo hoo! you go girl!!!

Mike k puts it into perspective - "If you have a big announcement to make and have more than 50 Twitter followers, hit up People magazine because they will probably give you the cover."

I've never heard of this woman in my life. I wanted it to be Jared or Jensen! I know it's never going to happen, but a girl can dream, right?

Not a clue as to who she is. I'm with you Enid. I must be a gay boy trapped in a lesbian's body cuz when I imagine them together and happy I get all warm inside and grin like an idiot for at least 5 minutes. It's a total mood elevater. Better than any anti depressents. They so give me the warm and fuzzies.
