Wright admits that she was afraid to be open about her sexual preferences, citing that she had been raised in a southern community where people openly frowned upon homosexuality.

Friends of the country artist said the she did not want to be the first country star to come out publicly.

Wright has said that coming out was a magical moment for her, as she has long hid the fact for music. Many media sources and fans alike are wondering how the announcement will affect the sales of her albums and memoir. Other sources wonder if her current fan base will remain solid.
