Gretchen Wilson, “One of the Boys”

“Woo hoo hoo.” That’s a catchy little hook there. Wilson sounds more fully engaged in the material here, much more so than anything that was released off of the mediocre All Jacked Up project. There’s a sweet charm to this single, and it’s nice to hear her going for the soft sell instead of always raving it up. This could conceivably be an opener to a very interesting themed album about gender roles, but my guess is it’s just a simple, one-off number. I don’t know if this will be enough to entice radio back to her side – I still haven’t figured out exactly why they jumped ship so quickly in the first place – but it’s a pleasant enough release.

Grade: B
