Country singer Chely Wright is now an officially open-and-out lesbian. And thanks to her coming out party, a lot more people actually know her name and who she is. Bravo to her genius publicist, Howard Bragman!

She tells People she had a good reason to be initially coy about her sexuality: “There had never, ever been a country music artist who had acknowledged his or her homosexuality. I wasn’t going to be the first.”
