Chely Wright and Brad Paisley dated in 2000, just months before the 'Ticks' singer would fall for his now-wife Kimberly Williams. While Paisley has never spoken about this doomed romance, Wright has publicly asked for a chance to be forgiven."I had no business being in a relationship with him," she told Oprah after coming out as gay in 2010.

"I wronged him... I damaged (him), and I hope he forgives me. I hope this fills in some emotional gaps for him." Wright talks about the relationship in her book Like Me: Confessions of a Heartland Country Singer.
