"Country music has been described as being about God, family, and virtue. And for some reason, people think that you can't be gay and have those beliefs,"

"And that's why I have to do this...I have to be one to step forward and say, 'Really? You think you know what gay is?'"

"But, certainly, never having an openly gay or lesbian country music singer, yes, it's been tough."

Wright also revealed she's been the victim of unwelcome attention as a result of her openness. "Since my coming out, I've been bullied,"

"I was bullied in school--of course not for being gay, because I hid until May of this year the fact that I'm gay. But since my coming out, yes, I have been bullied. And it doesn't feel good."

"Everyone should get the same shot," was her final word on the matter. "This is the way I was born. I'm a Christian and I'm gay."
