I Got Your Country Right Here is the fourth studio album by American country music artist Gretchen Wilson, released on March 30, 2010 via Redneck Records, her own label. The album's first single, "Work Hard, Play Harder", was released in October 2009, and became Wilson's first Top 20 hit since 2005's "All Jacked Up." The album's title track was released as the second single in August 2010, and "I'd Love to Be Your Last" was released in January 2011 as the third single.
In an interview with The Boot in November 2009, Wilson was asked to describe her fourth studio album, saying, "I feel like I've invested a lot of time and thought and energy and emotions into this record. I feel like I sang better on this record than I ever have. Musically, it sounds just like it should, just like I want it to, just like my live show." She also thought that the album had more of a "connection with the audience" then her previous efforts.
Wilson, via her website, called I Got Your Country Right Here as the 'album of her career', stating: "This is the album of my career; This album turns the page for me. I'm proud of every song on here, and I'm excited about the team we've put together to get this music out to the fans."
I Got Your Country Right Here is also the first release for Wilson's personal label, Redneck Records, which she founded after leaving Sony Music Nashville's Columbia Nashville division in 2009.
Thom Jurek of Allmusic rated the album four stars out of five, saying that it showed her Southern rock influences and that it "rocks nearly as hard as her live shows and [proves] that she is not an industry-constructed image — she’s exactly who she’s portrayed herself to be all along."
