Grammy Award-winning country artist Gretchen Wilson will visit Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel Saturday night. She’s been holed up in her Nashville-area studio working on a trio of new albums, and itching to get on the road.

Even if it’s snow-covered.

“We have been, for the last three months, we’ve been in the studio just recording like crazy. So, we are like more than ready to get out there,” Wilson said. “We’ve only had two shows this year so far, so we’re really looking forward to getting out there and doing what we love to do the most, and that’s the live show.”
