What ever happened to Gretchen Wilson?  I mean one minute she was the most popular and hottest female female country star out there and then poof she was gone!  Well today, Gretchen turns 42!

In 2004 Gretchen Wilson took the country music scene by storm with her I don't give a crap attitude and songs the working woman could relate to.  I mean when I say she was the most popular, I mean it.

Gretchen in less that two years won the 2005 CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, 2004 ACM Top Female Vocalist, 2004 ACM Top New Artist, 2004 CMA Horizon Award and the 2004 Grammy Award Best Female Country Vocal Performance.  How is that for a sweep!
