six pack attack

Chely Wright Didn’t Know You Knew She Was May 5’s Coming Out

You might have heard that country singer-songwriter Chely Wright is a lesbian! You might’ve also heard how her publicist Howard Bragman managed to infuriate the entire entertainment press with his bungled, let-down-y unveiling. But Ben & Dave’s Six Pack was among her publicity stops, and perhaps her most revealing.

Like she did in every other interview, Wright brings up the 9mm she had in her mouth at one point. But she also talks about the speculation that was leading up to the May 5 reveal, spoiled early by this website.

“I have been off the grid for about six weeks, so I didn’t even know until last Friday that there was even a buzz going on,” she tells Ben and Dave. “I wasn’t aware of it until my manager called me last Friday.”

    She said a lot of great things. I hope she can fully accept her homosexuality.

  • Jon (ugh yep that one)

    it was worth the listen.

    Useless story. Don’t buy the book.

    I actually bought the book on a whim the other day. It was sort of interesting. She had a radically different upbringing than I did, and yet had a lot of the same internal reactions to being gay.

    Also, having never followed country music in the slightest (if pressed, I *might* be able to name a dozen country music acts, and I’d probably get some names wrong), it was kind of a bizarre experience to see names mentioned in a way where it was clear that I was expected to know who these people were, but they were totally unfamiliar.
