GRETCHEN WILSON TO PERFORM ON "TONIGHT SHOW" & "THE TALK"
Participating in CMA Songwriters Series at Club Nokia in LA
(Nashville, Tennessee...) -- February 7, 2011 -- After Gretchen Wilson attends Sunday night's Grammy Awards, where she's a double-nominee for "Best Country Female Vocal Performance" and "Best Country Song," she will stay in Los Angeles to make a couple of high-profile television appearances. On Monday, February 14, she will make her debut appearance on the popular new CBS Television show "The Talk," and the following day she will return to the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno." That same evening, she will join fellow songwriters Chris Young, Brett James, Victoria Shaw and host Bob DiPiero at Club Nokia for the CMA Songwriters Series. She will perform her Grammy-nominated single "I'd Love To Be Your Last" on both "The Talk" and the "Tonight Show" exactly as it was originally recorded -- with just acoustic guitar and cello. "This is such a beautiful love song, just so beautifully written by Rivers Rutherford and Sam and Annie Tate," said Gretchen. "It's the kind of song that almost makes you cry every time you hear it. It's the last track on the (I Got Your Country Right Here) record and I'm really glad we put it on there." The original recording and/or the radio remix have both been a Top 5 Download on MPE. The song can be heardhere. Following Grammy week, Gretchen will be back on the road for dates in Mahnomen, MN and Dubuque, IA before heading home for a Grand Ole Opry appearance and the annualMusic At The Millbenefit concert for McClain Christian Academy in Lebanon, TN.
