Critical acclaim for REBEL:

“one of contemporary music’s freshest new voices, regardless of genre.”

“Anne Wilson is a genre-blender in the truest, most artistically satisfying meaning of the word.”


“The 16-song project hits the bullseye between contemporary Christian and Country twang”

“sonically and thematically, the album stitches together the threads tying Country and Christian music”


“set to become a cherished addition to the libraries of fans of both genres”


“A fresh-faced, 22-year-old country music ingenue sings about Jesus Christ with folk-aimed soul and countrified pop passion akin to the shouting required to knock down the Walls of Jericho in the Old Testament’s Book of Joshua.”

The Tennessean

REBEL is a tribute, not only to her ability to write songs, but tackle a variety of topics and different styles of music.”



Last Friday, tickets for Wilson’s 28-stop headlining The REBEL Tour went on sale and are going fast, already selling over 50% of tickets four months before it kicks off on Sept. 12, 2024. The coast-to-coast tour will stop in major markets across the country with special guest Jordan Rowe, including Wilson headlining Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium for the very first time on Sept. 25, 2024. Tickets are available now at


Wilson recently notched the No.1 spot at Christian radio during REBEL’s street week with her empowering anthem “Strong,” marking Wilson’s third career No.1. The single, co-written by Wilson, Jeff Pardo and Matthew West, has already garnered over 35M global streams to date. She also recently became 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.




Earlier this month, Wilson commemorated the groundbreaking release with a performance of the title-track “REBEL” on The 3rd Hour of TODAY. 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. Highlighted on the album is fan-favorite “Songs About Whiskey,” accompanied by 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 bolster the record, enlisting 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 “Rain In The Rearview.” Despite only being three years into her career, Wilson has already won a Billboard Music Award, multiple DOVE and K-LOVE Fan Awards and received nominations for prestigious honors from the GRAMMYs and American Music Awards. 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 trajectory knows no bounds.

As Wilson prepares to take the stage for The REBEL Tour, she will grace the stages of both Country and Christian music’s most sought-after festivals this summer. Stay up to date with Wilson at and keep up with her on Instagram, TikTok and YouTube.

Audio / Anne Wilson talks about the song, “Rebel.”


Anne Wilson (REBEL song) OC: …fitting in. :28
“Ever since I started making music, I felt like a little bit of an outsider. My sound is inspired by my Kentucky roots and my lyrics are inspired by my spiritual roots. So, I’ve just decided I’m going to be unapologetic about my sound and just as unapologetic about my message. My faith is the most important part of my life. I hope this song will be an anthem for others to stand out in a world so obsessed with fitting in.”
