In 2004, Gretchen Wilson shot to popularity with her country anthem, “Redneck Woman.” But after years of performing and putting out new music, she stepped away from the business in 2014 to focus on her raising her daughter. Now, she’s ready to make her comeback with her brand new single, “Rowdy.”
Wilson took the country by storm with her 2004 debut record, Here For the Party. Interestingly enough, “Redneck Woman” was the first No. 1 country song by a female artist in two years to reach No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
Her decision to step away from the spotlight to focus on raising her daughter was important to her. “As a single mom,” she tells Broadway World, “I knew I could never get the time back with my daughter if I continued the pace I was on.”
She’s ready to get back in action and has been working with producer Blake Chancey on a new album. You can get a sneak preview of what’s to come with her rocking new single below.
Wilson plans to release a new album that will be out some time in 2017. There are even rumors swirling that a 2017 tour is currently being booked.
Wilson expressed that this new album felt just as exciting to create as her first one did. “I can’t wait to get back on the road to share it with everyone,” the singer shared.
It sure sounds like Wilson is ready to make an epic comeback.
