Following the release of her acclaimed #1 debut album My Jesus, Christian-country artist Anne Wilson has released a string of new versions of her latest hit, “Hey Girl.” A clear fan favorite for its catchy chorus and empowering message, the song has racked up more than 6.8 million views on TikTok and 1.2 million streams on Spotify alone. The overwhelming support of the feel-good track, which impacted Christian radio on September 16, prompted the release of a multi-track Single experience, available today, Friday, September 23.
“This song ‘Hey Girl’ is an anthem for all women. It’s a reminder that we’re made in the image of God and that our identity is in Him. I’m so excited to be releasing this multitrack single with 4 different versions of ‘Hey Girl’ on it,” Anne Wilson shared. “I got to explore my artistry through this and create versions that were each very special to me. I pray this song reminds you that you’re a blood bought, battle fought, made NEW child of The King.”
Including a radio edit, live version and a new “Kentucky Version” which offers an acoustic, bluegrass-inspired feel, “Hey Girl” proves to be a hit in more ways than one. Each version offers fans a different side to Anne’s impressive range not only vocally but also as a multi-dimensional artist. The multi-track release follows the launch of the official music video which enjoyed an exclusive premiere with Facebook and has quickly garnered over 6 million views on the platform. The video, which was directed by Alexa Campbell (Carly Pearce, Ashley McBryde, Gabby Barrett, Florida Georgia Line), is also being serviced to CMT, giving Anne an additional platform to continue to spread her message of positivity and self-love.
The Kentucky native has experienced a multitude of blessings over the past few years. Her debut album My Jesus hit the No. 1 spot on multiple charts including Billboard’s Top Christian & Gospel Albums and Billboard’s Top 200 Christian & Gospel. The album also made CCMG history, scoring the biggest debut week in over 15 years by a Capitol Christian Music Group-signed new artist. The title track earned Anne her first RIAA Gold Certification, a 2022 Billboard Music Award nomination for “Top Christian Song” and won ASCAP’s “Song Of The Year.” She’s gone to perform multiple times at the Grand Ole Opry and has a consistent touring schedule with some of the top names in music. Closing out the year, Anne began her nationwide stint on Casting Crowns’ The Healer tour this week running through December and she will release her first book “My Jesus: From Heartache to Hope” on October 25. Anne’s heart-on-her-sleeve personality and passion for Jesus have allowed the talented singer-songwriter to connect with the masses. With more new music on the horizon and exciting projects in the works, Anne continues to prove this is just the start of a lasting and impactful career.
