Born in rural Illinois and raised by a single mom, Gretchen
Wilsons formal education concluded in the eighth grade when
she started tending bar at Big Os, a rough and tumble joint.
By the time she was 15, she was managing the place with the
help of a loaded 12-gauge to keep folks in line. But her
voice provided the most firepower. Discovered while singing
with a house band in Nashville, Wilson soon joined the ranks
of the Muzik Mafia and the rest is history. Her debut album
Here for the Party was certified quadruple platinum and
established her as the top-selling debut artist of the year
for any genre. And her signature knack for storytelling and
connecting with an audience made her a superstar. Co-written
by acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Allen Rucker,
Redneck Woman: Stories from My Life will recount this
All-American success story as Gretchen shares her childhood
memories, the road to the top, inspirations (Tammy Wynette,
Loretta Lynn, Merle Haggard), fashion preferences (Wal-Mart
over Victorias Secret), connoisseurship (beer over
champagne), and much more in an open, honest, and hilarious
memoir that will enchant new and old fans alike.
