Coming to a Bookstore Near You!

Like Me
Ok, it's not coming for another month and a half, but there's lots of anticipation and speculation about Chely Wright's upcoming memoir, Like Me.  What exactly will she be confessing?

I don't have any inside scoop, but I am excited to read it.  I love Chely, she's never been anything but completely wonderful to me.  And one of my favorite albums ever is The Metropolitan Hotel.  So much so that I bought a t-shirt, and I almost never buy merch.  There was so much great music on there... gutwrenching sometimes... but great. "Southside of Lonesome"... "What If I Can't Say No Again"... good stuff.  A very raw song for her mom.  And then I always liked "It's The Song."  I'm a nerd like that... I like songs about the music business.  "I Got Him Ready For You" is another good one.  Sassy. 

Lifted Off the GroundSorry, I got distracted. There's new music coming too... the album is called Lifted Off The Ground.  They haven't serviced a single, although I hear there's a song floating around out there that's being referred to as a single.  I'm guessing it's a soft launch, going to secondary (smaller) radio stations first.

Anyway, both projects hit stores May 4th.  Looking forward to putting the rumor mills to rest and reading Chely's story myself.  How awesome must it be to have a BOOK in stores?  Completely different than a CD release day I would guess. 

Go Chely!  And don't forget if you're coming to CMA Music Fest, the 10th Anniversary Reading, Writing and Rhythm concert is BACK this year!  Sarah Buxton, Bucky Covington, Rodney Crowell... someone else whom I'm forgetting because it's 12:15 in the morning... Tickets on sale now!

Yes! I'm glad to see I'm not the only one looking forward to reading this book! Chely's "Never Love You Enough" is probably in my top five of best albums of all-time. LOVE it!

Too funny Sandi! I used to work with a girl that like 3 guys in a row married the next girl they dated after her. LOL

I don't remember hearing alot of rumors about her......

I've gotten some additional info since I wrott this, and am told it is indeed going to to be very revealing. People magazine has the exclusive on the first preview if that's an indication that it's not your average "former hitmaker writes a book" story.

wrott this? Yikes. LOL

That's about my record! LOL But they're getting divorces, so it's all good. Err, you know what I mean!

I've heard things off and on about Chely. Doesn't change how I feel about her music.
