I first heard 'Redneck Woman' during a road trip to Colorado & my friend & i were howling laughing till we cried at its audacity and sheer nerve. The whole cd's like that -- Wilson's brass-balls voice is huge, her writing is sharp (the xmas lights, the baby on the hip) and her execution is brilliant. No denying she's the real thing, with a magnificent set of pipes that can deliver ballads with smooth sweetness and belt a rocker clear up to the rafters. country music isn't my thing, but I love Gretchen Wilson!!

Country music. Great mix of up-beat and slower songs. These songs can all be heard on the radio.
Dissin' Gretchen Wilson
Redneck Man | Lake Norman, NC | 12/20/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)
"OK, anti-Gretchen Wilson-ers ... y'all say she ain't "polished" and "all Nashville-shiny enough". Well, DUH!?!?!? She's jus' a lil' ol' redneck girl! I'm from southern Illinois - about 60 miles from her hometown - so I automatically love her. But seriously, what's great about her and her lyrics are that they come from the way she was raised and grew up. She pulled herself up by her own britches and she sings about it. If that ain't country music at it's finest roots, then y'all jus' ain't been listening long enough. She's good. Damned good. She ain't She-nay-ya and she ain't Faith. She's her own woman, singing her own lyrics. It's nice not to have Nashville rammed down our gullets - for a change - by being able to buy something new and innovative instead of ANOTHER of "canned country du jour". YOU GO, GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
A breath of Fresh Air in Nashville

"Gretchen Wilson is a breath of fresh air in country music. It's the difference between listening to a real natural talent who can sing her heart out vs. listening to a fake barbie doll with a manufactured sound. Nashville has been churning out pure mush for the last decade and they lost me to the Texas music scene. But Gretchen proves that raw talent can still kick the door open in Nashville and I am glad she did - it's fun and energizing - Gretchen your great - go Girl!"
