The 44-year-old Alan, who has a son and
daughter with his ex-wife, talked about coming out with Greg in
Hollywood at last weekend's GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles, which
he attended with Trea Smith, his boyfriend of more than a year.
“I didn't know what to expect,”
said. “I thought there might be some negativity in a big way
but there really hasn't been. People have been overwhelmingly kind.
And that goes from the A-list artists who have spoken up since I came
out to real-life people living their lives every day as LGBTQ.”
“I would have never expected to be
received so warmly in country music. But country music is a little
bit different than it was years ago, as is the world in general.
People are a lot more open-minded and willing to accept, and also
incredibly loving,” he added.
