GRETCHEN WILSON BREAKS RECORDS

Being a redneck woman isn't a bad thing - just ask Sony's new artist, Gretchen Wilson. Her debut single, "Redneck Woman," is now the fastest-rising song into the Top 20 by a new artist since LeAnn Rimes' "Blue" in June 1996 - almost 8 years ago. Last weekend, Gretchen's video for the song debuted at No. 3 on CMT's "Great 8" video countdown. The clip features guest appearances by Kid Rock, Tanya Tucker, Hank Williams, Jr., James Otto and Big and Rich. Also last weekend, Gretchen joined her pal Kid Rock at his homecoming concert in Detroit, taking Sheryl Crow's part as the two sang the duet "Picture." To see Gretchen's video, go to cmt.com.
