Country singer Gretchen Wilson announced plans to complete her high school education. The thirty-three year old “Redneck Woman” singer claimed her six year old daughter, Grace, inspired her to study for her GED, so she can secure a future for their family with, or without, a hit record.
I never had regrets until I had a child. I started realizing how important that was, how slim the chances were of my dream really coming true. And where would I be right now if they hadn’t come true [with] what kind of an education I have? And I wouldn’t really be anywhere. I’d probably be pouring drinks, just like I was before I got the record deal.
Gretchen said she hopes her fans will follow her lead and decide to focus on their education.
