Wilson Not to Smoke at Concerts



Gretchen Wilson was asked to cease using tobacco at her concerts

Being considered to violate the 1998 settlement between states and tobacco companies forbidding tobacco ads targeting young people, Gretchen Wilson was requested by the state attorney general to stop "glamorizing" the use of smokeless tobacco at her concerts. The country singer previously was clearly seen pulling a can of Skoal from her pocket while performing her new song, "Skoal Ring."

"Many young people attend your concerts and purchase your music and T-shirts," Attorney General Paul Summers wrote in his letter sent to Wilson Thursday. "Because your actions strongly influence the youth in your audience ... I ask you to take steps to warn young people of negative health effects of smokeless tobacco use."
