A heartfelt first person story. To think Chely Wright knew she was a lesbian when she was just five or six, even if she didn't know the word for it at the time. To keep it a secret for as long as she did despite several female-female relationships must have hurt her, but her decision to come out put Music Row on notice that there are others like her and it would be a matter of time before they would have to get used to it as other music genres have. I certainly respect her courage as well as for being a leader and not a follower.

Even if you don't like the country music genre, this is truly a great read - for anyone at any age. Let makes you realize that you're not alone in struggling with your own sexuality.

Well written and insightful. I've never heard her music but she has certainly gained my respect as an author. Worth reading.

I don't know her music, but her story is tragic and heroic all at once. Good for you Chely Wright.
