Country singer Ty Herndon is gay, he revealed to Entertainment Tonight on Thursday.
“Traditionally in country music, we don’t see a lot of support for the LGBT community, but that’s changing so much,” Herndon said. “It gives me a lot of hope that Nashville is ready for this. I get to be free today. I’m born again today, and I feel like I’m not gonna have any trouble sleeping tonight.”
Herndon shot to fame on the country scene in 1995 with his hit single, “What Mattered Most.”
