Gretchen Wilson Named NRA Country Featured Artist for June
Grammy, ACM, CMA, and AMA award winning country artist, Gretchen Wilson, has been chosen as NRA Country’s Featured Artist for June. As part of the promotion that started Monday, June 5, fans can enter for a chance to win an autographed copy of Wilson’s newest CD release and an NRA Country/Gretchen Wilson Merchandise Pack.
After an almost three-year pause to focus on raising her daughter, Wilson is back in the country scene with new single, “Rowdy,” followed by a new album release in mid-June and a nationwide summer tour.
Best known for her smash hit and first single, “Redneck Woman,” Wilson has produced three #1 albums and a New York Times Best Selling autobiography, “Redneck Woman: Stories from My Life.”
“I recently moved from a farm to a neighborhood, so my daughter could study theatre in high school- she’s incredibly talented.” Gretchen Wilson said. “I just love being outside. I mow the grass every few days just to have something to do outside! I’m sure I came up with some the song ideas for my new record in my backyard. I miss riding through the woods on four wheelers and having target practice out in the field, but we do pretty much anything for our kids, don’t we?”
As an NRA Country Featured Artist, Gretchen Wilson joins some of country music’s biggest acts including Hank Williams Jr., Florida Georgia Line, Lee Brice, Frankie Ballard, Love and Theft, Easton Corbin, Eric Paslay, Craig Morgan, Chase Rice, The Swon Brothers, Jon Pardi, Montgomery Gentry, LOCASH and many more, in teaming up to celebrate their support of our brave men and women in uniform, appreciation for the great outdoors, and love of family.
In May of this year, Wilson was featured as a surprise guest for the Hank Williams Jr. concert at the NRA Annual Meeting in Atlanta.
