Kathie Lee & Hoda: Gretchen Wilson Records Three Records In a Year
Gretchen Wilson is a superstar in the country music world. She is one of only a handful of artists who had their debut single reach the number one spot on the charts without even having an album release. The song, “Redneck Woman,” catapulted Wilson to the top of many people’s lists as the next big thing in country music.
Since her first album debuted in 2004, Here For the Party, Wilson has won a Grammy Award, she has sold over eight million records worldwide and she has had five songs reach the top 10 on the Billboard Country Music Charts.
Now that Wilson is at the top of her game, with six albums under her belt already, she did something few other artists have accomplished. She recorded three different albums to be released this year and two of them are being released within one month of each other. The albums are titled Right On Time and Under the Covers, while the third album is a yet to be named Christmas album.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Gretchen Wilson “Still Rolling” Performance
With all the work she has been putting into her music, Kathie Lee and Hoda could hardly believe she even had time to stop by the fourth hour of the Today Show, but she told them she finds the time because she has a great band backing her up and they love working together.
As for the song she performed on the show, “Still Rollin’,” Wilson said it is a lot different than “Redneck Woman,” but she said she thinks it is different in a good way. I would have to agree, the song is a lot different than the song she is most known for, but the vocals on the new song are excellent. It is definitly a good taste of some classic country music.
