Gretchen Wilson is at work on her third album and expects her next single to come from the new project, she said Monday (Aug. 28) during an interview with CMT.com. She said she’s still recording the vocals on some tracks, adding that the project is about a month and a-half away from mixing. “So far, this is my favorite project that I’ve made,” she said. “It’s a lot deeper. It seems like this year, with some of the changes that have happened in my life, I’ve learned a lot about myself. I’ve just opened up, and I’ve explored different parts of myself that I haven’t before. I had different things to say that I haven’t yet. It’s a really honest record.” Wilson’s current single, “California Girls,” is currently No. 28 and climbing on Billboard‘s country airplay chart.
