PEOPLE.com is reporting that Country artist CHELY WRIGHT has come out of the closet.

This week, CHELY will release a memoir, “Like Me,” as well as her first album in five years, “Lifted Off The Ground.” She’ll also appear on NBC’s “Today” show on WEDNESDAY (5/5) to discuss her personal journey. “Today” begins at 7a (CT).
