Granted, "Redneck Woman" Gretchen Wilson's second album doesn't generate quite the body heat of her barnbusting debut, Here for the Party. It's no pooper, though, as you can hear in country-rocking stompers like the barroom-brawl-in' title track, the Paris Hilton-dissing "California Girls," and the (why hadn't anyone thought of this title before) instant on-tap classic "One Bud Wiser." Yes, the mustard does get slathered on pretty thick for the trailer-trash-talkers "Politically Uncorrect" and "Not Bad for a Bartender." Overall, though, Wilson's friends-in-low-places approach continues to be a welcome thumb-to-nose retort to Nashville's suburban-sprawl notions of what keeps things country these days. All together now: Yee-haw!
