Gretchen Wilson releases new single
Tuesday, July 15, 2008
– Gretchen Wilson released her brand new single "Don't Do Me No Good" to country radio Monday. The driving, uptempo record is from her upcoming release, "I Got Your Country Right Here," due out this October.
"What a great way to kick off the summer with the new tune," said Wilson. "After being on the road and taking the time to graduate, I'm ready to rock again on country radio." Wilson graduated high school earlier this year through a GED program in the Nashville area. Written by Wilson, Ashley Gorley and Wade Kirby, Wilson has been playing the song in concert.
Wilson is currently in the studio adding the finishing touches to the new disc and touring this summer.

In this disposable world, even though her first 3 discs went ...
