Gretchen Wilson

Friday, November 15, 2013 @ 8 PM

To all appearances, Gretchen Wilson went overnight from talented obscurity to phenomenon. Her meteoric rise was that rare instance where talent and moment meet to form a cultural tidal wave. "The reason I've been successful is that I've been genuine from the get-go," she says, "and I continue to try to do that. I'm an open book." The identity she wears so guilelessly is one that resonates strongly with fans of country and Southern rock--the independent, take-no-guff, hard-working and hard-partying country woman. Gretchen's ability to inhabit that persona publicly, as well as her flair for tailoring songs as gorgeously rough-edged as she is, have given her the kind of "I am what I sing" originality few women in country music history--Loretta, Tammy, Dolly and Tanya chief among them--have ever been able to achieve.

Opening for Gretchen is singer/songwriter and up-and-coming counry star, Maggie Rose.
