Country Music Singer Comes Out

Billy Gilman is the second male country artist to come out.  The first was Ty Herndon and he came out not too long ago.  It is an incredibly hard industry to break into for queer artists and you can see his struggle in this video.  Something I didn't realize was that Billy was the youngest singer to land a top 40 hit at age 11 back in 2000 for his song 'The Voice".  I really hope he has success in the future and that people look beyond who he loves and focus on his music.  I know, I dream pretty big.
