A little over a week ago, when it was teased that there will be a star coming out of the closet, I bet if someone said it would be a country music star, they would all say Kenny Chesney. 

Well, they were wrong as it is "Single White Female" singer Chely Wright who is stating she is gay.  It is somewhat of a surprise, at least for me.  But at the same time, I am sure many of you are going Chely who? 

Chely will be on the Today show this Wednesday and L.A. local morning show Good Day L.A. has an interview with Chely that took place earlier but made an agreement not to air the segment til Thursday. 

It was not supposed to be revealed that she was coming out until Wednesday, but TMZ, who is not used to getting scooped, and was with the Sandra Bullock cover story last week, was not going to let it happen 2 weeks in a row and found out late Sunday it was Chely Wright.

Chely Wright was linked at one time to Brad Paisley.  I guess Single White Female seeks a Single White Female, right?-Dr.FB

Now, we have a feeling people in New York and L.A, big city folk so to speak, are not going to trip on this.  However, how will Middle America respond to the first ever "out" country star?-Dr.FB
