Gretchen Wilson brings her blue collar, female based show to the Osage Event Center, tomorrow, Friday, November 12, 2010. Wilson, who started out as part of a Nashville country music style of the Groundlings type comedy troupe called MuzikMafia, which also included John Rich and Big Kenny comes from a grassroots approach to music and most of her songs are comprised of working woman, (not in the oldest profession sense) themes.
She made her debut in 2004 with the Grammy Award-winning single "Redneck Woman," a number-one hit on the Billboard country charts. The song served as the lead-off single of her debut album, Here for the Party. Wilson followed this album one year later with All Jacked Up, the title track of which became the highest-debuting single for a female country artist upon its 2005 release. A third album, One of the Boys, was released in 2007. Her latest album, I’ve Got Your Country Right Here was released in March 2010.
Having charted 13 singles, 5 of which have reached the Top Ten, the Number One "Redneck Woman", as well as "Here for the Party" (#3, 2004), "When I Think About Cheatin’" (#4, 2004), "Homewrecker" (#2, 2005), and "All Jacked Up" (#8, 2005). The album Here for the Party was certified 5× Multi-Platinum by the RIAA for sales of five million copies, while All Jacked Up was certified platinum.
With raw talent, high-energy and an every-woman style she has gained fans in every genre of music. You can bet that you will hear favorites and some catchy covers from some very big name artists.
