Whose Wright? Chely vs John



If Chely Wright was hoping to stir up controversy with her memoir 'Like Me'  she has definitely succeeded in doing just that. In part of her book, she alleges that a comment from fellow country star John Rich sent her into a meltdown. Now John is defending himself against the charges saying it's all just a big misunderstanding. “I would never pass judgment on any friend of mine. I feel awful that, at this time in Chely’s life, my decade old comment — ‘Good, thank God’ — was taken the wrong way. I was clumsily trying to express my relief that even a country boy like me had a one-in-a-million chance of having a beer with a woman as talented and attractive as Chely. For years after that conversation, Chely invited me to perform at charity events. In all that time, I wish she would have said something directly to me before the book’s publicity tour, especially since some of the comments attributed to me in the book are not mine. But I am happy for her and only wish her the best in her personal and professional life.”
