Chely Wright is making a musical comeback.  The country singer is looking to fund her new studio project through Kickstarter.  Her new disc will be her first since 2010's Lifted Off The Ground

The album arrived on the same day as her memoir, Like Me, in which she officially came out and became the first openly-gay country star.  And Chely admits on her Kickstarter page that a lot has happened over the past four years - including getting married and becoming a mom.  She adds that throughout it all she's been writing songs which she's excited for her fans to hear. 

In just a week Wright had pledges totaling more than a third of the $175,000 she's hoping to raise.  Her fundraising effort runs through October 9th.
