Chely Wright speaks to the crowd at Capital Pride and performs her song Damn Liar

Chely Wright, the first major country music star to come out as gay, took the Capital Pride Festival stage on Sunday, June 13, to find a cheering and enthusiastic crowd. Before launching into ”Damn Liar,” a song from her new album Lifted Off the Ground, Wright told the crowd a little bit about herself — and got in some quality flirting as well.
