She may be on the Gang of Outlaws Tour with ZZ Top & 3 Doors Down, but NRA Country Artist of the month, Gretchen Wilson, still has her roots firmly planted in country music. Her new single “One Good Friend” hit iTunes today and will be sent to radio soon.
The single was written by Bekka Bramlett, Billy Burnette and Dennis Morgan, and produced by Gretchen and Blake Chancey. Chancey co-produced her last CD, I Got Your Country Right Here, which yielded the Grammy-nominated “I’d Love To Be Your Last.”
The single was love at first listen for Gretchen. “The first time I heard this song it blew me away. “The lyric hit me really hard, and fans at the ZZ Top shows are telling me it’s doing the same thing to them.”
Although she may seem a bit of an outcast on her current tour, Gretchen has nothing but raves about her current gig. “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.”
The tour will run through the end of June, and fans of Gretchen can purchase an exclusive VIP package that includes an exclusive meet & greet with Gretchen on her tour bus, a VIP-Only Laminate, a guaranteed ticket in one of the first 15 rows of the concert, one-of-a-kind Gretchen Wilson Box Set, personal photo taken with Gretchen, and an autographed copy of her critically acclaimed I Got Your Country Right Here album.

In what might be one of this year’s hottest touring packages, Gretchen Wilson has joined 3 Doors Down on ZZ Top‘s “Gang Of Outlaws” tour. The tour, which kicks off May 25th in Manchester, NH’s Verizon Arena, will bring all three to select southern and mid southern venues across the United States. See a full list of their tour dates together below.
Fans might be familiar with southern rock group 3 Doors Down for their number one hits “Here Without You,” “Kryptonite,” and, “When I’m Gone.” Just because they might not be the most ‘country’ act on the bill doesn’t mean that they aren’t excited! Lead singer Brad Arnold had a lot to say on the tour:
“The tour is huge! We have the honor to share the stage with some amazing artists, including one of my favorite bands, ZZ Top! We can’t wait to bring Gang Of Outlaws to your town.”
Gretchen, who will make appearances on most of the tour dates, (see below for which ones), is also pretty pumped about the line-up:
“Obviously I couldn’t be more excited that I am to be part of this tour… Fabulous guys, fabulous musicians!”
