PLATINUM-certified, GRAMMY-nominated artist and songwriter Anne Wilson has secured the No.1 spot at Christian radio during her album REBEL’s street week with her empowering anthem “Strong.” As it marks Wilson’s third career No.1, the single written by Wilson, Jeff Pardo and Matthew West has already garnered over 32M global streams to date. Notably, Wilson becomes the only female artist to have three No. 1 singles across the Mediabase Christian AC and Mediabase Christian Audience charts since she first launched on the scene with “My Jesus” in 2021.

REBEL, the “trailblazing album” released this past Friday (4/19) from “one of contemporary music’s freshest new voices, regardless of genre” (People.com), sees Wilson boldly stamping her love of Jesus, Country music and family. A co-writer on each of the 16 tracks, the “bold, triumphant” (Holler) record has already seen an immense outpour of critical acclaim, with Billboard praising its “faith rooted Country sound,” while GRAMMY.com recognizes “Wilson not only proves how her faith is her true north, but also shows others yearning to get there a path foward.” Combining much-needed encouragement, vulnerability and transparency into a perfect balance that footholds the space between the dead-end road paved in dirt and the church pew of redemption on Sunday morning, the record produced by Jeff Pardo and Jonathan Smith emerges as a powerful message of faith.

Last week, Wilson commemorated the groundbreaking release with a performance of her loud-and-proud title track “REBEL” on The 3rd Hour of TODAY,  and also announced her headlining REBEL Tour with special guest Jordan Rowe, kicking off on Sept. 12. Tickets for the 28-stop tour are available for presale now and general on-sale will begin on Friday, April 26 at 10 a.m. local on www.annewilsonofficial.com.

Charging onto the scene three years ago with her debut single “My Jesus,” Wilson made the powerful declaration to cling firmly to her faith after finding God’s healing following the tragic loss of her brother. Now, as she remains steadfast and unwavering in her commitment to her faith-filled message, Wilson delivers an album in REBEL that “hits the bullseye between contemporary Christian and Country twang” (GRAMMY.com) in an ode to Wilson’s Lexington, Ky. roots that honors two genres who share a deep-rooted history.

Highlighted on the album is “the upbeat banger” (GRAMMY.com) “Songs About Whiskey,” released with an all-new music video, that finds Wilson unashamedly walking the line of her strong faith and Country roots. Collaborations with some of Christian and Country music’s biggest names further elevate the collection, tapping reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Lainey Wilson for “Praying Woman,” GRAMMY-Award winner Chris Tomlin for “The Cross” and Country superstar Jordan Davis for “Country Gold.”

Last month, Wilson landed her first CMT Music Award nomination for Breakthrough Female Video of the Year for her Country radio single “Rain In The Rearview.” Despite only being three years into her career, Wilson has already amassed an impressive list of accolades, including winning a Billboard Music Award, multiple DOVE and K-LOVE Fan Awards, in addition to being a GRAMMY and American Music Award nominee. Recognized as Apple Music’s Country Riser for April, an artist to watch by Spotify, Pandora, the Grand Ole Opry, CMT and more, and over 900M career streams, Wilson’s star continues to rise.

With her REBEL Tour on the horizon, she will grace the stages of both Country and Christian music’s most sought-after festivals this summer to share her message of faith, resilience and hope with audiences across the country.
