Richell Rene "Chely" Wright (/ˈʃɛli ˈraɪt/; born October 25, 1970) is an American country music singer and gay rights activist. On the strength of her debut album in 1994, the Academy of Country Music (ACM) named her Top New Female Vocalist... in 1995. Wright's first Top 40 country hit came in 1997 with "Shut Up and Drive". Two years later, her fourth album yielded a number one single, the title track, "Single White Female". Overall, Wright has released seven studio albums on various labels, and has charted more than fifteen singles on the country charts. As of May 2010, Wright's previous eight albums and 19 singles released had sold over 1,500,000 copies in the United States. In May 2010, Wright became one of the first major country music performers to publicly come out as lesbian. In television appearances and an autobiography, she cited among her reasons for publicizing her homosexuality a concern with bullying and hate crimes toward gays, particularly gay teenagers, and the damage to her life caused by "lying and hiding".

Someone had on here that she was bi, not so, just because she's been with men doesn't make her bi.
Bravo to Chely and Lauren! Hope they live happily ever after with their kids!
Shania are there any pictures of you and Chely together naked.
Chely is now coming out of the closet next week looking for fame and fortune in a tell all book about the women and men she has had affairs with. Guess that`s one way to sell music and books!
Chely isnt at the CMAs because she hasnt had a song in the top ten since 1999 - Single White Female. Honestly, she is no longer a country star. She is a former country star.
Why isn`t Chely at any of the CMA awards anymore, even as a presenter ?
