Gretchen Wilson is having the time of her life on the Gang of Outlaws Tour with ZZ Top and 3 Doors Down, and the current NRA Country Artist of the Month this week released her first new single in over a year. “One Good Friend” is currently available here on iTunes, and plans are in the works to ship the single to radio.
One of her most standout vocal performances, “One Good Friend” was written by Bekka Bramlett, Billy Burnette and Dennis Morgan. Gretchen produced the track with Blake Chancey, who also co-produced her recent cd I Got Your Country Right Here. That album yielded the Grammy-nominated “I’d Love To Be Your Last.”
“The first time I heard this song it blew me away,” said Gretchen. “The lyric hit me really hard, and fans at the ZZ Top shows are telling me it’s doing the same thing to them.”
Gretchen hit the road on the Gang of Outlaws Tour last month, and it runs through the end of June. Fans can catch her between each act signing autographs at her merchandise booth.
“It’s been a blast out there,” she added. “People are coming up to me and saying, ‘I’ve never heard of you, but I’m buying all of your music!’ This has been a great opportunity to get out and hit a totally new audience.”
