Gretchen Wilson is a ‘Ballgame’ Winner
Fans have voted Gretchen Wilson's version of 'Take Me Out to the Ballgame' as their favorite. ESPN's 'Baseball Tonight' commemorated the 100th anniversary of the famous seventh inning stretch song with a Battle of the Bands competition. Nine artists made music videos of their versions of the song that were televised on the show over a two week stretch. The eclectic group of competitors included Candlebox, Reo Speedwagon, John Pizzarelli and Branford Marsalis. But fans voted Gretchen Wilson's country version the winner. Wilson herself is a huge baseball fan.
"My mom had me in the girly stuff first -- ballet and dance classes. But as soon as I was old enough to make my own decisions, I was playing baseball," Wilson told ESPN. "I took after my Uncle Vern. He was an all-star back home."
Wilson has just released a rockin' new single to country radio called 'Don't Do Me No Good.' You can hear it on AOL Radio's New Country First station.
