Country music star Gretchen Wilson has finally gained her high school diploma - at the age of 34.
The Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter dropped out of school in her native Tennessee during ninth grade (age 14-15), but has now passed her General Educational Development diploma after taking the exam in April (08).
Wilson will don a cap and gown for a graduation ceremony on 15 May (08).
And she admits her seven-year-old daughter Grace was the main reason she decided to finally finish.
She says, "I certainly don't want her (Grace) to think you can be this successful without an education."
