Country singer Gretchen Wilson has really big plans for 2013. The 39 year old singer and guitarist has just released a brand new album, RIGHT ON TIME, with a new single headed up the country charts. But, she has plans for an oldies album, which sounds like a greatest hits collection of some type, as well as a Christmas song album that will be out in the holiday season. Besides playing shows, this marks one of her most ambitious years as a performer.

Gretchen’s last album was in 2010, although she won 2011 Grammy award for a single from that album. Her new album is her fifth studio album to be released.

Although the singer was born in Illinois, she seems to fit right in with the Nashville scene. 2013 seems to be her biggest push yet to make a mark as one of country music’s major stars.

Gretchen Wilson has remained active while not performing raising money for charity or political causes. She is a lifelong sports fan, and has worked St. Jude’s Hospital as well as Republican Party events, and identifies as a Christian in her faith.
