In 2010\, singer Chely Wright put this conservative environment to the test when she became the first major country music performer to publicly come out as lesbian. Having made a strong debut as the Academy of Country Music’s Top New Female Vocalist in 1995\, Wright went on to score big hits with “Shut Up and Drive” and “Single White Female.” She was romantically linked with superstar Brad Paisley and was invited to perform at “The Mother Church of Country Music\,” the Grand Ole Opry.   Behind the scenes\, though\, Wright was struggling with her sexuality and her Christian faith\, and she was haunted by a difficult childhood in rural Kansas. After attempting suicide\, she decided to risk her career by releasing Like Me\, a memoir about her years in the closet. Named after a track from Wright’s album “Lifted Off the Ground\,” Wish Me Away is a candid profile of a groundbreaking figure in music history.   Wish Me Away: Directors Bobbie Birleffi and Beverly Kopf 2011 USA 96 min.
