– Gretchen Wilson has played the arenas, but now Wilson will head back to her roots when she embarks on her I Got Your Country Right Here club tour this week.
The gigs are set up as a "hear it before you can buy it" opportunity for fans to listen music from her fourth studio album, "I Got Your Country Right Here," due out March 30 on her own label, Redneck Records. Wilson and her band will perform cuts from the new album. "This is where I started," said Wilson, referring to bars and clubs she where she honed her unique style before landing her first record deal.
