Keep the Well in Greenwell


nate and joseyThere was once a country singer named Josey Greenwell who had a following and was openly gay (as reported by But then he sort of dropped out of sight for a while—it happens—and after six or eight months his fans noticed that even his Facebook page and Wikipedia presence had evaporated. Meanwhile, there’s a new country singer on the block named Nate Green, who’s totally heterosexual and… it didn’t take long for someone to notice that Josey Greenwell and Nate Green are one and the same.

In fact, Nate did surprisingly little to alter his appearance, but now that the jig is up, he’s threatening to sue anyone who asserts that he’s gay, and he’s aggressively banning gay men from interacting with him on social media. What makes this presto-chango odder still is that Greenwell had come out very publicly and proudly just a few years ago, and the Internet is rife with photos of the handsome hunk cavorting with his boyfriend (Brazilian model Rodiney Santiago) in his underwear for DNA magazine. Green/well’s total denial of his former self leads one to wonder if he knows what century he’s living in. Dude, we know what you look like, and those photos aren’t going anywhere!
