    GRAMMY-nominated artist and songwriter Anne Wilson was rendered speechless as her Capitol Christian Music Group team surprised her with a celebration to announce that her debut single “My Jesus” is now certified PLATINUM by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The “deeply personal breakout ballad” (Billboard) has continued to fuel Wilson’s unstoppable career as it notched over one million units sold and counting, with numerous awards and accolades to its name.

    Wilson’s momentous week extended to her debut performance at a Country award show during Monday night’s ACM Honors. She graced the historic Ryman stage alongside Jordan Davis to perform the double-Platinum, ACM Award-nominated No. 1 song, “Buy Dirt.”  Watch the performance here.

    “What a moment for the Lord, for my sweet brother Jacob, for my family, for the writers and producers, for Capitol Christian and for ALL who have walked this unexpected adventure,” shares Wilson. “To see what God has done out of the deepest pain is such a precious gift that He has given to all of us. GOD NEVER wastes our sorrows. He uses them in ways we cannot dream of. I can’t wait to hug my brother again and talk about all the things God has done. Jacob must be beaming in heaven right now sitting with ‘My Jesus.'”

    Called to her musical mission in the wake of tragedy, Wilson’s “My Jesus” – an empowering anthem of personal conviction wrapped in uplifting, roots-pop energy – served as her warm introduction to fans in early 2021. After going viral upon release, the single’s music video reached 7M views in its first week and 23M to date. The track hit No.1 on Billboard‘s Christian Airplay chart, making her the first debut female Christian artist in chart history to reach No.1, and was nominated for a Billboard Music Award for Top Christian Song. The single also went on to be named ASCAP’s 2022 Christian Music Awards Song of the Year, reaching Spotify’s Viral 50, the Shazam Top 200 and Rolling Stone’s Top 25 Trending charts. To date, the song has accumulated 360M streams and 180M TikTok views in addition to notching PLATINUM status.

    The follow-up to her introductory track was her now GRAMMY-nominated, 15-song debut album, My Jesus, which was released on April 22, 2022. As the biggest debut album by a CCMG artist in over 15 years, the “soul-touching record” (CMT) reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Christian & Gospel Albums and the Top 200 Christian and Gospel charts, topping her total global streams to over 722M.

    Wilson’s star continues to rise, she’ll embark on her first-ever headlining My Jesus Tour with special guest Josh Baldwin kicking off next Thursday. The nearly sold-out 20-stop tour begins on Sept. 28 in Houston, Texas and spans across the country with stops in major cities including Austin, Atlanta, Charlotte, Indianapolis and Chicago.

    Earlier this summer, Wilson released “Seventh of June,” a deeply personal and heartfelt tribute to her beloved late brother Jacob. She also secured yet another Dove Award nomination for her 2022 Christmas project, The Manger, recognized in the category of Christmas/Special Event Album of the Year at the upcoming 54th Annual GMA Dove Awards, taking place at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena on Tuesday, Oct. 17 and airs on Friday, Oct. 20 (8:00 pm ET and 10:00 pm ET) on TBN and the TBN app. For dates and more information, visit www.annewilsonofficial.com and keep up with her on Instagram, TikTok and YouTube.


    GRAMMY-nominated artist, songwriter and 2023 Dunkin’® ambassador Anne Wilson has teamed up with Dunkin’® to spread joy at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt this morning, July 19. The heartwarming event featured Wilson’s visit to Seacrest Studios for an intimate performance and patient-led interview followed by a donut decorating party to celebrate the return of Dunkin’s “Gold Joy” donut, all aimed at bringing happiness and support to children fighting cancer at Monroe Carell and beyond.

    “I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to spend a morning with the amazing kids at Monroe Carell,” shares Wilson. “It warms my heart to bring a moment of joy to their day while we shared music, played games and had a blast decorating donuts from Dunkin’. The resilience and strength these children possess is truly inspiring and I feel blessed to have shared this experience with them. Thank you to Monroe Carrell and Dunkin’ for allowing us to create unforgettable memories.”

    Starting today (July 19th) until Saturday, August 5th, Dunkin’ is inviting its customers to “shine gold” in a joint effort to bolster the mission of the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation: bring joy to children afflicted with illness. The Shine Gold initiative allows guests at participating Dunkin’ locations throughout Nashville to make a $2 donation to the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation, and in return will receive a free Gold Joy Donut as an expression of gratitude. The Gold Joy Donut — a traditional donut ring decorated with gold icing, yellow sprinkles and crowned with a glazed MUNCHKINS® Donut Hole Treat — pays homage to the childhood cancer awareness ribbon. Thanks to the generosity of Dunkin’ franchisees throughout Nashville, 100 percent of funds raised from the Dunkin’ Gold Joy Donut will be donated to local children’s hospitals like Monroe Carell.

    Wilson is no stranger to bringing a message of hope and healing with her music. Last year, she launched “Hey Girl Nation” as a community for her fans to connect, encourage self confidence and remind members of their self-worth. She also released her first book, “My Jesus: From Heartache to Hope from Thomas Nelson” where Wilson shares her detailed path to healing to help those facing similar experiences.

    Following the recent announcement of her and Capitol Christian Music Group’s partnership with Universal Music Group Nashville, Wilson has allowed fans to connect with her story through the release of “Seventh of June,” a deeply personal and heartfelt tribute to her beloved late brother Jacob. The critically acclaimed songstress has also revealed her highly anticipated headlining tour, the My Jesus Tour, with special guest Josh Baldwin, set to kick off on Sept. 28 in Houston, Texas.

    Multi award-winning artist and songwriter Anne Wilson pours her heart out in her poignant new release, “Seventh of June.” A deeply personal and heartfelt tribute to her beloved late brother Jacob, the track and accompanying music video is available everywhere today. Wilson enlisted trusted collaborators Matthew West and Jeff Pardo (“My Jesus,” “Living Water”) to craft this soul-stirring account of his passing, reflecting the raw pain of loss while showcasing Wilson’s unwavering faith and conviction. Through her powerful lyricism and emotional delivery, Wilson not only cherishes her brother’s memory but also extends solace to those grappling with profound grief.

    “‘Seventh of June’ is a song that was written about the day that forever changed my life. The day that I lost my big brother Jacob in a tragic car accident,” shares Wilson with heartfelt vulnerability. “No matter how much time passes, this is a day that will always be so important to me. I really pray this song impacts people and reminds them that it’s OK to grieve. Jesus is with us in the midst of it all!! This is for you, Jacob.”


    The accompanying music video, directed by TK McKamy, a CMA and ACM award-winning director, was filmed at the Wilson Farm, which has been in their family for over a century in the Kentucky countryside. Given the importance of this song and video, Wilson’s entire family had a hand in the creation of the video that serves as a meaningful collaboration honoring Jacob’s life. Brief glimpses of his resting place and the songstress wearing one of his old shirts while strumming Jacob’s guitar bring personal touches that infuse each moment of the video with depth, heartbreak and healing.

    Wilson’s life was forever transformed by the impact of Jacob’s passing, as she discovered her voice and musical mission in the days following the tragedy while delivering a heartfelt performance at his funeral. Since then, Wilson has used her God given talent to create music that resonates with millions. She went on to write and release “My Jesus,” the “deeply personal breakout ballad” (Billboard) that catapulted her to massive success, quickly being named ASCAP’s 2022 Christian Music Awards Song of the Year, reaching Spotify’s Viral 50, the Shazam Top 200, and Rolling Stone’s Top 25 trending charts. The follow-up to her introductory track was her GRAMMY-nominated, 15-song debut album, My Jesus. Rising to No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Christian & Gospel Albums and the Top 200 Christian and Gospel charts upon release, the record-breaking debut has amassed her catalog over 600M global career streams to date. This past April, Wilson celebrated her life-changing album with a special edition titled My Jesus (Anniversary Deluxe), featuring two all-new tracks that honored the project in a re-imagined light.

    Earlier this week, Wilson and Capitol Christian Music Group announced the expansion of her team, aligning with Universal Music Group Nashville for new music. Also added to her powerhouse team is The Neal Agency for talent booking.

    The rising songstress was recently nominated for Best New Female Artist at last week’s K-LOVE Fan Awards. Other career accolades include nominations for her first GRAMMY for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album and nods from the American Music Awards and the Billboard Music Awards for Favorite Inspirational Artist and Top Christian Song, respectively. Wilson also earned herself a spot on Pandora’s 2023 Artist to Watch: Christian/Gospel list and RIAA’s Class of 2022, all while writing and publishing her first book My Jesus: From Heartache To Hope which launched to major success before going on to make the Evangelical Christian Publishing Association’s Bestseller List.

    After performing over 150+ shows in 2022 and completing 39 dates on the 2023 Winter Jam Tour, Wilson will appear at CMA Fest on June 11 and has more exciting touring announcements to be shared soon.
