To all appearances, Gretchen Wilson went overnight from talented obscurity to phenomenon. Her meteoric rise, the kind experienced by only a handful of artists in the past few decades, was that rare instance where talent and moment meet to form a cultural tidal wave. Gretchen’s ability to tailor songs as gorgeously rough-edged as she is, have given her the kind of “I am what I sing” originality few women in music history have ever been able to achieve. Her first single, “Redneck Woman”, spent six weeks at number one. Her debut album, Here For The Party, sold more than five million copies and spawned three more top 5 hits including, “Homewrecker,” “When I Think About Cheatin’,” and the title track, “Here For The Party.”
Since her debut, she has been featured on “60 Minutes,” “Dateline NBC,” “20/20 Primetime,” CNN’s “People In The News,” and she has appeared on virtually every morning, noon and late-night television show on the air. She has won across-the-board awards including ACM’s, CMA’s, AMA’s, Billboard’s, and is a Grammy winner, and nine-time nominee. Her first book, the autobiographical “Redneck Woman: Stories from My Life,” landed her on the prestigious New York Times Best Seller List.
Beyond career and family, Gretchen has maintained an active charitable role, performing in clubs and small theaters to raise money for organizations like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Children’s Miracle Network. As the scope of her life continues to grow, the young woman from the tough background looks to find her ultimate place in the larger scheme of things. “I think sometimes this is a stepping-stone and there’s something greater still for me to do,” she says. “I’m not sure what, yet, but a lot of it I think comes from this overwhelming sense that my grandma knew something I didn’t know. I know what her purpose was now. She never really found her ‘peace’ on this earth, but she is my saving Grace!”
Gretchen launched her own Redneck Records label and has released four albums to date, including her recent Ready To Get Rowdy. Earlier this year she signed newcomer Jessie G to her label, and she will be joining Gretchen on stage at Rhythm City Casino.
