Description

Product Description

Chely Wright, singer, songwriter, and country music star, writes in this moving, telling memoir about her life and her career; about growing up in America''s heartland and about barely remembering a time when she didn''t know she was different. The youngest of three children, Wright would ascend the ladder to the top of the country-music world, only to find herself trapped in a place she hadn''t foreseen, but had to face.



From high-school homecoming queen to successful recording artist with her first hit single, “Shut Up and Drive ” Wright''s journey was dictated by keeping the truth of who she was closeted in a world in which country music stars had never been – and could not be – openly gay. Working with the biggest names in Nashville, she navigated these treacherous waters until the charade took too great a toll.



Ultimately, as she reveals in this candid and outspoken work, Wright found the courage to untangle herself from the image of the country music star she''d become, an image steeped in long-standing ideals and notions about who – and what – a country artist is, and what fans expect that artist to be.

About the Author

Chely Wright is an acclaimed singer and songwriter. Her seven albums have sold a million copies. Wright has given concerts around the world and has performed seven times for the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. She lives in Nashville and New York City.

This is a wonderful deed! I don''t doubt that Chely''s book has had and will continue to have a strong positive impact on many, many young gay women. How many girls who have recorded a "coming-out" video on youtube have also concluded with Chely Wright''s inspired words: "You are not alone."? I had never seen her before. But watching her more recent interviews I was struck by her amazing physical beauty. And she writes in her book how much easier it is for gay women who are physically beautiful to "pass" for being straight. I was also struck how she described her physical, sexual and emotional attraction to other women from an early age. This attraction was overwhelming and undeniable, in spite of the constant conservative cultural and family influences of her environment. And this account has given me pause to think about sexual orientation not being a choice. I applaud her sincerity and her courage. I truly believe she has experienced God''s grace. And I only hope that her idea of being "Christian", open-hearted and forgiving, becomes accepted by a wider religious audience. Unlike many other reviewers, I was not overly impressed with her expression of the English language as "fine" literature, although she did have her moments. But her life story is a story that must be told. And we are all of us the better for it.

I saw the movie, so I was prepared, or so I thought. I could not put this down. It is a journey and one that I was lucky enough not to have to go through, but one that I have heard from many of my friends and people I knew growing up. Having to go thought this at all is difficult, but having to do it publicly takes courage and inner strength and a strong group of friends she was lucky enough to have. I highly recommend this and I recommend getting her album that she wrote and put together during this time of her career (“Lifted Off the Ground”). I am so disappointed in Nashville for their closeted ways in this day and age. I know there is a strong “right” following in the Midwest, but there is just as strong of a “left” following. Country music is popular because the music tells stories, not because of someone’s lifestyle or if the person singing is gay or straight. They like the music for the stories that are told and the melody of the songs. I hope they figure that out in Nashville and that the country music world continues to play her music, even though it appears that they haven''t since the publishing of this book.

I highly recommend this novel to anyone that has struggled with who they really are.

I moved away from Nashville for years due to jobs in different parts of the country, I have returned to make it my home again.

I was on my way to work, changing my radio station on a break so I didn''t have to listen to the commercial and settled on Stephanie Miller on a Los Angeles AM station. She was interviewing Chely Wright, I was intrigued by her story. All american Christian woman country singer AND lesbian?!!!! (AND VEGETARIAN!!!) Whoa, I knew that was going to P*SS some people off!!!!

Her book was honest, insightful and absorbing. Her story is uniquely hers and at the same time, I felt the relief of reading commonalities and feeling the comfort of knowing someone else has felt similar feelings to mine over my own life journey. I appreciate her letting me take a peek into her life and also learned a bit about myself as well. THANKS!!

I had to listen to her music after the book, I''m now a fan. Wish I would have written DAMN LIAR. That one feels really good to sing along to!!!!

I have been a Chely Wright fan for years and did not know she was gay.....and that in no way changes my feelings one way or another. Because I have been a fan I thought I would get her book. I was truly moved by it. It felt like she was sitting at the table with me as she told her story. I am so happy for her!! I can not imagine how she (and others) feel by hiding from such a huge part of their lives. I can not imagine how that must affect someone. Although I have very limited knowledge about the gay community, through Chely''s book I have taken a harder look at my views. Everyone deserves the right to live and love as their heart leads them. It''s not a choice....one can''t help who they are attracted to any more than they can help the color of their eyes or skin. Thanks for sharing your story. Truly a great read.

This is a very touching story of someone finding her voice and freedom in who she is. Sadly, the country community (not all) and mostly it seems, the listeners, are largely homophobic and control the radio stations. If they play someone that is gay, the radio station gets shunned. I think its more of a presumption than a reality. It''s disgusting if you ask me that the attitude is left to go on. However, the story is amazing and I recommend watching the documentary as well. For anyone gay or bi-sexual, trying to figure out if they are gay or bi, it makes it really clear in the things she suffers. Great book!
