WCQ367 Tony Clarno of Billy Elliot

Host: Amy Matheny with Kelli Simpkins

The gals dish on Chely Wright's coming out on Oprah and how Country Music's good ole' boys will react or not react. How will the country music fans react? Was her coming out different than KD Lang or Ellen? Amy and Kelli have seen lots of theater lately including Billy Elliot. Will Sex and the City 2 be the same outside of New York? What are the gals doing for Memorial Day?
