In a new social media post, CMT Cody penned an honest and heartfelt message about him coming out as gay. The radio/TV host many of us know for being able to captivate audiences and allowing artists to be themselves couldn’t look any happier with the accompanying photo.
Here is what he wrote:
2017. As we start a new year, there is something I want to share with you. You see, I’m gay. This is not a choice I made, but something I’ve known about myself my whole life. Through life’s twists and turns, marriage, divorce, fatherhood, successes, failures – I’ve landed on this day, a day when I’m happier and healthier than I’ve ever been. And I’m finally comfortable enough for everyone to know this truth about me. Thanks for following me and supporting me over the years. As we continue our journey, I hope this news won’t change how you see me. I’m still the same Cody I always was. You just know a little more about me now. My hope for the future is to live the most honest, authentic, loving, and open life possible. Here’s to being happy with yourself, no matter who you are, who you love, where you come from, or what cards life has dealt you. Thanks again.
With much heart,
I just want to say, props to you Cody. Authenticity and honesty are a couple traits hard to find these days. It’s unfortunate. Many people want to act like someone they’re not, say things they don’t mean, and look like they think they should look. When you see someone in the public eye come out with this type of honesty, it’s about as refreshing as it can get.
Cheers to all the folks keepin’ it real out there.
