According to the most Gretchen, the secret of its success was the fact that in his work it is – the same as in life. A woman from the provinces, independent, hardworking and fun – for it and love it, and respect the fans of country style.

Wilson was born in 1973 in Pocahontas, Illinois. At the time of birth Gretchen her mother was just 16 years old. His father fled when the girl was 2 years old. We lived incredibly poor; Gretchen’s mother was a waitress, and very Gretchen had to quit school after the ninth grade and pore cook and bartender.

In 17 years, Gretchen began to sing, 18 caught the eye of Susie Osborne, manager of Missouri, who was looking for a country group for your bar. When I first heard the vocals Wilson, before Osborne agreed that the hearing record – youngsters sang incredibly good for Illinois heartland. And if you look, who sings, Wilson made an offer she could not refuse. And the next two years, Gretchen kupno with his band, ‘Sam-A-Lama’, held in Springfield, speaking on six nights a week.

Thus began a musical career Gretchen Wilson.

There she met John Rich and Big Kenny (it was 2000), the band members’ Big & amp; Rich ‘; Gretchen then it became a co-author of their songs, and OPRICH of Rich convinced her that she should do the trial record, donyuhivatsya companies ready so her contract, and all should imagine a career.

So she came.

The very book was also a great success: ‘Here for the Party’ was the ‘country music album of the one’ and took the second corner in the ‘200 best albums of the’ version ‘Billboard’, and was the second best-selling at the time in Internet album. If ‘Here for the Party’ was published in Australia, he finished second settlement in the country charts, and the album entered the ’50 best albums’ overall. Finally, he became a ‘Platinum’ 5 times – that is, selling over 5 million copies!

The next three singles Gretchen always gets at least in the ‘Top Ten’ charts.

In September 2005 came another album, ‘All Jacked Up’ (already published his company ‘Sony Music Nashville’, as the ‘Epic Records’ closed). He took first place in the country music charts, and ‘general’ charts; It has sold over 1 million copies. The title track, released as a single at the same time was on 21 in the charts ‘Hot Country Songs’, which was an absolute record for a song in the style of the country in the women’s version.

In 2008, Gretchen released the single ‘Do not Do Me No Good’, behind which was forced to follow the book ‘I’ve Got Your Country Right Here’. But this did not happen, because the single sings not included even in ’40 the best songs in the style of the country ‘, and the next two with singles failed to chart. Wilson took drastic measures: announced the termination of the contract with the ‘Sony Music Nashville’ (28 July 2009) and the founding of his own label ‘Redneck Records’ (July 30), and also promised newly single in September, and the book’ I’ve Got Your Country Right Here ‘- in November 2009.
