PLATINUM-certified, GRAMMY-nominated artist and songwriter Anne Wilson unveils the music video for her debut Country single, “Rain In The Rearview” exclusively on CMT/Paramount Times Square billboards, CMT, CMT Music and CMT.com today. The music video comes just days after Wilson was revealed as a member of the coveted 2024 CMT Next Women of Country class.
Directed by ACM Award-winner TK McKamy, the music video is a visual allegory for Wilson’s journey. The video begins with Wilson driving in her car as rain begins to pour before the imagery takes a poignant turn, finding Wilson standing strong in the pouring rain – a powerful symbol of finding strength in the midst of challenges. The video comes to a close as Wilson drives into the unknown, taking a bold leap towards brighter days ahead.
“The three versions of me and the perspectives of all three were so accurate to how my life has been,” Wilson shares with CMT. “We all go through different seasons and sometimes need the reminder that we can leave our past behind us.”
The track, currently spinning at Country radio now, was penned by Wilson, Matthew West, Jaren Johnston and Zach Kale. Garnering praise from critics since its release in September, MusicRow notes that “vocally she’s got the goods” and Billboard cites the “acoustic coda showcases Wilson’s ceiling-scraping vocal capabilities.” Released as part of her bold new venture that fuses the Christian and Country genres, Holler noted that the new three-pack of songs, REBEL (The Beginning), “clearly outlines Wilson’s new country-leaning mission statement,” as two of the songs simultaneously make waves at Christian radio (“Strong”) and Country radio (“Rain In The Rearview”).
