TMZ is reporting that country singer Chely Wright has come out to People Magazine. Yep supposedly the big announcement will be in next week’s issue of the magazine. Now if this really is fact and not fiction it will be interesting to see how Chely’s fans react, I mean fans of this genre of music tend to be a little more conservative. However I am a fan of Chely and her music and I say you go girl. I think she is a great role model whether this rumor is true or not.

Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri Chely grew up with music in her blood. She began singing in local bands at the young age of 11, she even started her own band as a young teen. After being part of the Ozark Jubilee in Branson, Missouri during high school Chely took a chance and auditioned for and got a position in the Opryland USA. During that time she honed her writing and singing skills and she was eventually signed by Mercury/Polygram. Wright released her first album in 1996 while attending Middle Tennessee State University.

In 1997 Chely had her first major hit with Shut Up and Drive, this was after she ended up signing with MCA Nashville records. It was her fourth album Single White Female that really earned her attention, recognition and respect in the music industry. After that she began working with big names in the business like Brad Paisley and Diamond Rio.

Wright eventually ended up starting her own record label and has had constant success as an independent artist. Her memoir Like Me is set to be released on May 4th.

If the rumor that Chely Wright is coming out is true she will be the first country singer to come out. However beyond this latest news about her Wright is an amazingly talented artist who has earned the respect of many in the music world and you see why from the below video.
