    • Synopsis
    • Chely Wright is a beautiful, talented, award winning country music singer (“Shut Up and Drive”, “Single White Female”) who seems to have it all but feels like she is living a lie. After years of denial, she decides to finally do what no one else has done: become the first major country music singer to come out of the closet as gay. Filmed over the course of three years with extraordinary access, this penetrating documentary looks at an artist about to make a life changing announcement.
