Ty Herndon and Matt Collum
In 2021, country star Ty Herndon broke up with long-term partner Matt Collum. On October 27, he made the announcement on Instagram. Herndon’s message to Collum was filled with emotion and included a heartfelt wish and prayer to stay good pals for a long time.
Prior to Herndon revealing his homosexuality in November 2014, the pair had been together for five years. Following in his footsteps, more LGBTQIA musicians have come out since this story became a revolution in country music.
