Country singer Ty Herndon realized he HAD to tell his story. He said to People on Tuesday;
“During an Anthony Robbins seminar, I realized I had an incredible story that could possibly help someone’s son or daughter or grandchild’s life not be as difficult as mine has been. Maybe they wouldn’t have to go through as much pain and suffering. It’s time to tell my truth.”
And that truth was;
“I’m an out, proud and happy gay man.”
Although getting to this point was years in the making for the 51-year-old singer. He first wondered if he was gay when he was around 10. He began coming out to close family members, thirty + years ago at age 20.
“My mother probably knew I was gay before I did. I remember sitting down with her and having the conversation… she was more concerned about me having a happy life. You have to be able to do that in your own skin, and [my family] has seen me struggle with being gay my whole career.”
