Episode Summary

Gretchen Wilson
Like a cyclone ripping through a trailer park, Gretchen Wilson is tearing up the charts with her unapologetic anthems for the redneck and soulful ballads for the single mom. She loves big trucks, tight jeans and cold beer. Armed with an eighth-grade education, a down-home sex appeal and a voice that's a gift from God, Wilson's been trying to crack the country music scene since she was 14. Hers is a soul-stirring story of triumph over tragedy. From her birth to a 16-year-old mother, to tracking down the father she never knew, to rising through the ranks of Music Row, Wilson is a hometown girl made good. Our story begins as she prepares to hit the road for her first radio tour and cameras are rolling as she performs for thousands of new fans. We're on set as she shoots the video to her follow-up single, "Here For the Party." And we'll stop by the Mercy Lounge for a meeting of the Muzik Mafia, with members including Big & Rich and Kid Rock, as they describe her rise from a honky-tonk barroom singer to a superstar. But most of all, we'll hear from Wilson herself. She's got an opinion about everything, and she ain't afraid to say it. Forget producer-polished pop stars, this self-proclaimed "Redneck Woman" is as real as country music gets.moreless
