Music / Chely Wright
Chely Wright is a Country Music
singer. She is known primarily for her hit "Single White Female" and pretty much nothing else
. Far after this hit, Wright was the subject of much controversy in the Country and Western fandom -who are by and large a pretty conservative bunch- for coming out as a lesbian.
Tropes associated with Chely Wright include:
- Bi the Way: The addressee of the song Like Me: "Who's gonna end up holding your hand - a beautiful woman or a tall handsome man?"
- Break Up Song: "Shut Up and Drive" is about a woman escaping a relationship, telling herself to "shut up and drive", "don't look in the mirror", and "turn the radio on".
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: Her fan club posed as family or friends of military members to plant requests for "The Bumper of My SUV".
- The Four Chords of Pop: The stanzas of One Night In Las Vegas start with the familiar I-V-vi-IV progression.
