Wish Me Away, the film that documents country music singer Chely Wright's coming out gay journey, arrived on DVD this week.

The film premiered on April 15, 2011 at the Nashville Film Festival and went on to win the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 23rd Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival.

Wish Me Away was produced and directed by Bobbie Birleffi and Beverly Kopf, who together run TVGals Media.

“When we started this project, we knew it was going to be hard,” Birleffi said at the film's screening. (A trailer for the film is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Wright officially came out in a 2010 interview with People magazine ahead of the release of her memoir Like Me: Confessions of a Heartland Country Singer, in which she talks about her life as a closeted country music singer.

Last year, she married her partner Lauren Blitzer in a ceremony in Connecticut. She's also the driving force behind Kansas City's LikeMe Lighthouse LGBT center.
