    I don’t know why it’s such big news. We live in a society where gay people can marry. Now, I don’t agree with that lifestyle and I wouldn’t want my child growing up thinking that lifestyle is right but I also believe it’s not our place to judge homosexuals and be so rude and crude to them. They will have to answer to God just like we do for all our sins. I wish Chely good things for her future. We all deserve respect and love. Her sexual orientation should affect her album sales. Look at Elton John, he’s as gay as a damn rainbow but he is an amazing musician and I absolutely love his music. You can’t deny that. Being gay doesn’t change the FACT you got talent! Good luck to you Chely in you endeavors and God bless!

      Being gay is not a lifestyle it’s what one is, created by God just like you. As for your child, I as a lesbian hope that he/she is not gay, cause I can imagine what a horrific time they will have because of your mentality. As for the “gay people can marry” only in very few places.

    Anybody remember Brian White? His career is what happens when you come out in Nashville.

    She has a new cd coming out…imagine that!

      And a memoir as well. “Coming out” to friends and loved one is one thing, but publicizing it, and timing the announcement with a book and a CD? That’s nothing but marketing. In that regard, why should anyone care what her preferences are?

    Good singer, Pretty girl, what a waste. Hope new album has crossover appeal because right or wrong the value of her country stock just went waaaaaay down
    She may need a government bailout.

    I didn’t know that Brian White was gay. Also, a Christian singer named Jennifer Knapp recently came out of the closet after being out of the Contemporary Christian music scene for a while. Interesting times, aren’t they?

    brian white is not gay u idiots. hes been married to a hot actress for years now and has a child with her.

    I think from the perspective of someone who has been in the “historically” conservative country music scene – this may be a big deal. While coming out is definitely a personal process – some do it big and some just be who they are – I won’t judge either way. When someone does come out though, there are a great many people who identify with them who find relief. Imagine being a young boy or girl in the Heartland of this country, knowing you’re gay and being scared that someone will find out – eventually avoiding your true self and identity just to get by.

    Maybe she isn’t as big as the fish I know lots of people are waiting for to come – but there are probably a few people out there who can look at themselves in the mirror now and love who they see!

    Bravo…Ms. Wright!

    If only you walked in her shoes to see what its like, you have no clue how hard making that decision is. You only go around this joint (world) once so you can choose how you live your life YOUR way or let your life choose how you live IT. Either way someone (Family or friends) may not aporove or may get hurt but at least its your life on your terms. You will find out who your true friends are when you choose. No matter your preference race, color or nationality there is someone out there for everyone and each of us have that right to find that person and live a happy life with them. Good luck to you Chely, I wish you much happiness and love in your life.
