'Redneck Woman'

All eyes were on Caitlin Anderson (far right) as she spoke about holding onto her country roots before she belted out the Gretchen Wilson hit “Redneck Woman" during Fort High's annual musical revue last week. "Country meets City” ran for three nights at the Townshend Theatre, using popular songs to tell the story of a group of country youths trying out the big city.
