Anne Wilson is gearing up to release a genre-blending new album Rebel on April 19 via UMG Nashville and Capitol Christian Music Group. To offer fans a taste of the forthcoming album, Wilson has released the new song, “God & Country.”
The new single, which was co-penned with Jeff Pardo, Matthew West and Trannie Anderson, showcases both sides of Wilson as an artist and the faith-infused country music that defines Rebel. She revisits the Kentucky roots that shaped her identity in the track, from church pews and Sunday morning choirs to mud tires and Friday night lights, and offers a glimpse of what it’s like to grow up in the heart of the heartland.
A co-writer on each of the album’s 16 tracks, Wilson teamed up with some of Music Row’s most in-demand songwriters for the project firmly rooted in both country and Christian music. The album was produced by Pardo and Jonathan Smith.
“I can’t wait for everyone to hear these brand new songs on April 19,” shares Wilson. “I’ve been working so hard over the past 15 months to write these songs, record them and get them into the world! I was raised on two things: the love of God and the love of all things country. That’s what fuels the music I make and that’s what you’ll hear more of on Rebel. I’m just so excited we are this close to releasing the record!”
In addition to “God & Country,” Wilson has been making waves with her current country single, “Rain In The Rearview,” co-written with West, Jaren Johnston and Zach Kale. Meanwhile, her single “Strong” continues to stand firm at Christian radio, reaching the Top 15 on the Billboard Christian Airplay and Mediabase Audience charts and climbing.’
Wilson will celebrate the release of Rebel with a special one-night-only event in Lexington, Kentucky, taking place on Sunday, April 21 at 7 p.m. ET at the Lexington Opera House. Tickets will go one sale this Friday, Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. ET.
