Gretchen Wilson Reveals the Start of Her ‘Redneck’ Ways

Gretchen Wilson is known as the ‘Redneck Woman’ of country music. However, those years building up to her life and career now didn’t just happen overnight.

“I was singing Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn songs in their entirety before I was speaking intelligible sentences,” Wilson tells Nashville based newspaper The Tennessean.

Not long after she began belting out songs in her younger years, Wilson began dabbling in another area of entertainment: stand-up comedy!

“I used to stand up and do comedy routines that I’d heard like Eddie Murphy and stuff,” she reveals. “I know it’s crazy to think they would allow me to speak like that, but we were kind of redneck hillbillies!”
