She received death threats when she first came out, but now it's all worth it for country singer Chely Wright. That's because she's found the love of her life.

"Out country singer Chely Wright and her fiancée, Lauren Blitzer, a GLBT Civil Rights activist have set a date and plan to be married in Connecticut Aug. 20," reads a statement. "They met through their youth advocacy work, and say that their passion for Scrabble holds them together."

Sounds like a triple word score - of happiness! - to us.

Says Wright to People: "The freedom of being out and open about who I am allowed me to find and fall in love with Lauren, the most amazing woman I've ever known."

We wish this couple nothing but the best.

I am so happy for both of them. What Chely had to go through in her life growing up in a culture that was not very open to alternate life styles and persuing a career that never had an openly gay star must have been extremely hard. So glad she has found happiness. All the best.
