Few artists in the history of country music have made as powerful of a debut as Gretchen Wilson. In 2004 Wilson released her first single, the country gal anthem “Redneck Woman,” for which she won a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
Wilson co-wrote the track with John Rich from country duo Big & Rich, and the two of them slipped in references to many other artists, including Tanya Tucker and Hank Williams Jr. They also found room to mention Skynyrd, whose name shows up in the first verse:
“Well, I ain’t never been the Barbie doll type.
No, I can’t swig that sweet Champagne, I’d rather drink beer all night.
In a tavern or in a honky tonk or on a four-wheel drive tailgate.
I’ve got posters on my wall of Skynyrd, Kid and Strait.”
