WHO IS SHE: Hailing from the small town of Pocahontas, Ill., Gretchen Wilson hit the big time quickly in May 2004 when her debut single “Redneck Woman” spent six weeks atop the Billboard Country chart. Wilson’s debut album “Here for the Party” sold 227,000 copies in its first week, landing at No. 1 on the country album chart and No. 2 on the pop charts. The album went on to sell more than five million copies. “All Jacked Up” was released in September 2005 and hit the top of the charts, reaching platinum sales status. “One of the Boys” was released in 2007 and debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 and at the top spot on the country chart. “I Got Your Country Right Here” followed in 2008. In addition to winning a Grammy, ACM CMA and AMA awards, Wilson’s autobiography “Redneck Woman: Stories From my Life” was a New York Times Bestseller.
