“If I Could Do It All Again”
Gretchen Wilson exploded onto the country music scene in 2004 with her smash hit “Redneck Woman” and has since scored three No. 1 albums with Here For The Party, All Jacked Up, and One Of The Boys. The critically-acclaimed multi-platinum artist has won virtually every award for which she’s been nominated, including Female Vocalist of the Year from both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music and a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. Her first book, the autobiographical Redneck Woman: Stories from My Life, landed her on the prestigious New York Times Best Seller List.
But until last year, Gretchen Wilson was one of the millions of Americans who hadn’t finished their high school education. A tumultuous home life caused Gretchen to drop out of high school. But even with her huge success, she still wanted to fulfill the void that had been missing since she was 15 years old. At the age of 34, Gretchen received her G.E.D. on May 15, 2008.
With “If I Could Do It All Again,” the new single from her forthcoming album, Gretchen takes a cue from her own life by taking a deeper look in the mirror and invites us all to spend more time embracing the often overlooked pleasures of life. Written by songwriting vets Rivers Rutherford and George Teren, “If I Could Do It All Again,” tugs at the heartstrings of any person who has wished they could change their past. The digital track will be available for purchase on all major services on June 9.
