WATCH | For Circa's "Enough of this S***" series, Grammy-winning country artist Gretchen Wilson ripped "political correctness" and claimed it's hampering dialogue that could lead to deeper understanding.
WATCH | "I think that the reason why we’re all going in [a] different direction is because we’re all afraid to talk to each other," the "Redneck Woman" singer told Circa at the Country Music Association Awards. "I don't think we’re all supposed to agree on everything."
Right now, we're not talking to each other about anything, and I think that that sucks. I think that we should be more open to speaking to each other.
She added that America should embrace "disagreeing, talking, getting to understand each other, and working through it."
WATCH | That's not to say she hasn't been partisan at times: In addition to performing at the 2008 Republican National Convention, Wilson introduced John McCain's running mate Sarah Palin at an Ohio rally in the final days leading up to that year's presidential election.
Wilson: 'Don't get upset and walk away'
Wilson concluded that disagreements shouldn't be deal-breakers.
"If somebody says something that rubs you the wrong way, don’t get upset and walk away," she told Circa. "Just say, ‘Hey, I think that it would be better if you said that this way.’ Or ‘I would appreciate it if you did this more like this.’ And then you get to choose, ‘Well, I don’t want to, so, I guess I'll walk away.' But I think a lot of things would get resolved if we could just talk to each other."
WATCH | On the same CMA Awards red carpet, Wilson joined many other country stars in revealing their all-time weirdest gigs to Circa.
