In front of over 1000 New Year’s Eve revelers in Rosenberg, Texas, Gretchen Wilson smoked her last cigarette. She confessed the desire – and challenge – to quit smoking, and lit her last one on stage. Following the concert, she threw away her remaining cigarettes, lighters, ash trays and any other reminders of her long-time habit.
“I figured if I said it from stage in front of my fans, I’d stick to it. And so far I have,” said Gretchen.
