Country star Ty Herndon comes out as gay After nearly two decades in country music, Ty Herndon is ready to be honest with his fans: He's gay.

The country star opens up about his past, present and future in an interview with Entertainment Tonight's Nischelle Turner that rivals ABC's country soap "Nashville" with its real-life drama. Herndon discussed everything from his former drug use, his failed marriages and his current relationship.

"I have an awesome relationship that I've been in for a good number of years," Herndon tells ET in a new sit-down airing Thursday. "[I] love him very much and he loves me."

Married twice before, Herndon reveals that both of his ex-wives were "absolutely" aware of his sexuality.

Rumors surrounding Herndon's sexuality first surfaced back in 1995, when an undercover male police officer alleged that the star exposed himself in a park.

"I wish I had really great recall or memory about that," Herndon said of the allegation. "I think I had been up for like 6 days doing drugs the night and the day was really a huge blur for me."

Now fully clean and sober, Herndon is looking forward to a future with his partner of five years, joking with ET that he hoped a proposal might follow his big reveal. "God, I'm hoping he asks me right after this interview!" he said....
