Chely Wright comes out as a lesbian and is country's first out singer. Um what about that other chick...Melissa Etheridge? She was kind of country! I dunno, something doesn't seem right about this "coming out" story. Oh and her song Single White Female, quite a contradiction to her coming out. Please tell me coming out is so "IN" that people are doing it to jump start their careers!!? You can read her story here.
I've been listening to country for years and years and I've NEVER heard of her, not that that means anything, just sayin'.
