"Redneck Woman" is the debut single of American country music artist Gretchen Wilson. Released in 2004, the single served as the lead-off to her multi-platinum debut album Here for the Party. The song was also Gretchen's first (and to date, her only) Number One single on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts, and also earned her a No. 22 pop hit in the U.S. It also reached #1 in Canada, and was the first number one song on that chart since Radio & Records started publishing Canadian Country charts.

The song, which is considered Gretchen's signature song,[1] also earned a Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance in 2005.[2] The music video was ranked #11 on CMT's 100 Greatest Videos in 2008.[3]

In 2005, Jill Johnson covered the song on her album Being Who You Are.

The song appears on the game Karaoke Revolution Country.

In this song's music video, Tanya Tucker, Hank Williams, Jr., and Kid Rock all make cameo appearances as well as Big & Rich (at ~ 1:19 and 3:18).
