Gretchen Wilson ready to 'Do It All Again'
With a new album in the wings, Gretchen Wilson will stay on the road for much of the second half of 2009 as she ramps up support for the latest single from the set, "If I Could Do It All Again."
The next leg of dates kicks off in Manchester, IA, on July 16 and winds through the Midwest and West Coast, focusing on a mix of casinos and outdoor stages on the fair and small amphitheater circuit.
Wilson helped kick things off at the CMA Festival in Nashville in June, and the forthcoming album, reportedly called "I've Got Your Country Right Here," is tentatively scheduled for an August release, according to interviews she's given around the new tour.
During an early July stop in Ontario, Wilson reportedly peppered the set with material from the new album as well as a couple of classic-rock covers, including Foreigner's "Hot Blooded" and Heart's "Barracuda," a song she played during the 2008 presidential campaign for vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
