Songfacts®:

  • I Got Your Country Right Here is the fourth studio album by American Country music artist Gretchen Wilson. It is also the first release for Wilson's personal label, Redneck Records, which she founded after leaving Sony Music Nashville in 2009.
  • Rivers Rutherford together with Sam and Annie Tate penned this song. Wilson told CMT News about it: "The songwriter, Rivers Rutherford, I asked him to come out to my studio, and he pretty much set up in one room with his acoustic guitar and I set up in another room. All we did afterwards was add a little cello. I felt like it just needed a little something, but I didn't want it to get big because it's such a personal song. What a beautiful song. It's hard for me to sing it without tearing up a little bit. I've known this song for about four years, and that was one of the decisions I made after I left Sony - to put that song on there."
