Her second album, “All Jacked Up,” hit platinum and saw more hit songs including, “California Girls,” “I Don’t Feel Like Loving You Today,” and “Politically Uncorrect.” Her third record, “One of the Boys,” solidified her position as one of contemporary music’s most original and multifaceted female artists. Wilson’s first book, the autobiographical “Redneck Woman: Stories from My Life,” landed her on the prestigious New York Times Best Seller List.

Wilson launched her own record label, Redneck Records, and produced several albums including, “I Got Your Country Right Here,” “Right on Time,” “A Night Under The Covers,” “STILL Here For The Party,” a live version of her debut album, and her most recent album, “Ready To Get Rowdy.”
