NASHVILLE, TENN. (MARCH 02, 2022) Capitol CMG artist and songwriter Anne Wilson will release her full-length debut, My Jesus, on April 22nd. The album’s title track catapulted Wilson up the Billboard Christian Airplay chart in 2021 making her the first female artist to debut at No. 1 on the chart as well as the longest-running No. 1 song on the chart for 2021. She introduced her new single, “Sunday Sermons,” earlier this year and premiered the music video exclusively on Facebook last night. Click here to check it out. This newest single was CCMG’s largest radio add date of the year so far and is currently a Top 20 on the Billboard Christian Airplay chart. Also beginning this Friday, fans can start pre-ordering the new album.
Amidst the whirlwind of the last year, Wilson’s maintained her southern charm and hopes her genuine love for others shines through on her debut album. Each song on the album, co-written with songwriting heavy-hitters like Matthew West, Mia Fields, Jonathan Smith, Jeff Pardo, Emily Weisband, Ben Glover, and more, is specifically crafted, a moment-in-time snapshot of Wilson’s self-discovery as she walks a new and unplanned life road.
“This record was written over the last two years of my life and is a collection of songs that each mean different things to me,” shares Anne Wilson. “Every song is a different side of me as an artist – country, worship, and radio – songs that speak to the masses and songs that speak to specific people or seasons. I feel like God placed this calling over my life to minister to those who’ve lost someone and are hurting. With these songs, I want to speak life and joy to people walking through pain and loss.”
One of the opportunities from her unprecedented success of 2021 with “My Jesus,” was her debuting at the Grand Ole Opry. Circle TV recently released the mini-episode of Anne’s “My Opry Debut” interview featuring her special night. A full-length episode will be coming later this spring showcasing Anne in her hometown state of Kentucky sharing her story that led to her debut in the historical Opry circle. Watch below for her “My Opry Debut.”

ABOUT ANNE WILSON: Singer/songwriter Anne Wilson knows the healing power of music firsthand. The lyrics of Hillsong Worship’s “What A Beautiful Name” became a lifeline for the Lexington, Kentucky native after her brother was tragically killed in a car accident at the age of 23. Although she spent much of her childhood behind a piano, Wilson sang in front of an audience for the first time at her brother’s funeral. It was at that moment that she realized what she was born to do. A video of her moving performance organically circulated, eventually landing her a record deal. With a mesmerizing voice and a visible hunger for Jesus, the 20-year-old relies on personal journal entries and time spent in nature for songwriting inspiration.
Wilson’s introductory track, “My Jesus”—which she co-wrote with Jeff Pardo and Matthew West—is a warm invitation to experience her Savior in the same intimate way she knows Him. She released a debut three-track single—also titled My Jesus—for Capitol Christian Music Group in early 2021 and followed it up with a live EP, My Jesus (Live in Nashville). Her song, “My Jesus,” charted on the Spotify Viral 50, Shazam Top 200, and Rolling Stone Top 25 Trending charts. Her story was also featured with the Religion News Service and The Washington Post. She made her Opry debut on the iconic stage in September 2021. Wilson was featured in Billboard Magazine as the October 2021 Chartbreaker artist.
