One Good Friend-Gretchen Wilson

She’s had five top 10 singles but the last one was 7 years ago. Still, she endeared herself to a hefty number of core demo women and to this day continues to have high and favorable name recognition. “She’s one of us” is a phrase more likely to be spoken about her than about any of the many, many Victoria’s Secret models seen singing pseudo-Country songs on CMT/GAC these days. This song is more bluesy than any I remember from Gretchen, it’s a soul-song, really, about friendship. There aren’t many songs about this kind of relationship. It’s far easier to write about romance. I like more each time I listen.
