With a transcendent vocal, down-to-Earth storytelling and a Heaven-sent desire to glorify Jesus, Anne Wilson is one of Nashville’s most inspiring young trailblazers – a Lexington, Ky. native mixing the heart of Contemporary Christian Music, and the sound of Country. Finding her musical mission in the wake of tragedy, Wilson delivered her first public performance at 15 while singing “What a Beautiful Name” at her brother’s funeral in a moving expression of faith which soon went viral. Called in that moment to continue on, her 2021 debut single, “My Jesus,” marked the arrival of a new star, fusing personal conviction with upbeat roots energy to become a GOLD-certified No.1 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart. The track made Wilson the first debut female solo artist in chart history to reach No.1 and went on to be named ASCAP’s 2022 Christian Music Awards Song of the Year. Now boasting more than 435M global career streams, her rise is gaining momentum.
Wilson was nominated for a GRAMMY for her 2022 debut album My Jesus (making her the only female in the category for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album), and has already won two GMA Dove Awards (New Artist of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year for “My Jesus”) and two K-LOVE Fan Awards (Female Artist of the Year and Breakout Single for “My Jesus”), while also scoring a coveted American Music Award nomination (Favorite Inspirational Artist). Making her Grand Ole Opry debut in 2021, Wilson continues to thrill live audiences, performing 150 shows in 2022 while being named to both the RIAA Class of 2022 and Pandora’s Artists to Watch 2023: Christian/Gospel, and also publishing a bestselling book titled My Jesus: From Heartache To Hope last fall. Her uplifting anthem “Hey Girl” is out now and has led to the creation of Hey Girl Nation, a community for fans to connect and encourage self-worth. Wilson is looking ahead to a new chapter – one that builds on her vision, and continues to blur the musical divide. “It’s the heart of Christian Music, the sound of Country … and the hope of Jesus,” she says. “I hope it all points back to Him.”
