Gretchen Wilson is Here for the Party at Treasure Island Resort & Casino!
Multi-Platinum recording artist, Gretchen Wilson exploded onto the country music scene in 2004 with her smash hit “Redneck Woman.” Her debut album, Here For The Party, sold more than five million copies and she won across-the-board awards including a Grammy and ACM, CMA and AMA nods for best female vocalist. Gretchen Wilson will be performing in the Island Event Center on Friday, January 27, at 8 pm.
This hard-working, hard-partying country girl is still at it with three No. 1 albums and her latest release, I Got Your Country Right Here, marks a return to the gritty Southern rock that first landed her superstar status.
Gretchen’s ability to inhabit that persona publicly, as well as her flair for tailoring songs as gorgeously rough-edged as she is, have given her the kind of “I am what I sing” originality few women in country music history–Loretta, Tammy, Dolly and Tanya chief among them–have ever been able to achieve. Set as it was within the broader scope of the Muzik Mafia, a talented and audaciously original ensemble, and like-minded entertainers from Kid Rock to Hank Jr., her rise was part of a genuine musical and cultural groundswell.
Since her debut, she has been featured on “60 Minutes,” “Dateline NBC,” “20/20 Primetime” and CNN’s “People In The News,” and she has appeared on virtually every morning, noon and late-night television show on the air. Magazine covers and major news features could paper an entire wall. Such is her cross-medium viability that her first book, the autobiographical “Redneck Woman: Stories from My Life,” landed her on the prestigious New York Times Best Seller List.
