Chely Wright

Country Musician
Named “Top New Female Vocalist” by The Academy of Country Music, CHELY WRIGHT rose to fame as a
commercial country singer in the ‘90s, and has since released nine studio albums and charted more than
17 singles on the Billboard charts, including “Shut Up and Drive” and “Single White Female.” Wright made history by being the first country music star to publicly come out as gay, which she wrote about in her 2010 memoir “Like Me,” published by Random House. She’s written songs for film, TV, and for other artists, spanning multiple genres.
