Anne Wilson is an award-winning singer-songwriter from Lexington, Kentucky. Not too long ago, she was nominated for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album at the 65th annual GRAMMY Awards for her debut album, “My Jesus.”
The GRAMMY Awards will air on Sunday, February 5th, 2023, from the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. The event will be broadcasted live on the CBS Television Network and streamed live and on-demand on Paramount +. The nomination marks Wilson’s first recognition by the Recording Academy, after a monumental year for the new artist.
“I’m truly blown away that I’ve been nominated for a GRAMMY. Words fail to describe my gratitude for all God has done and is doing throughout my life. I can’t help but wonder if my brother in Heaven is getting to see all of this. This is surreal and I’m beyond thankful. All glory and honor to the name above ALL names, Jesus.” – Anne Wilson stated
After first discovering her voice while singing at her brother’s funeral in 2017, Wilson’s debut chart breaker, “My Jesus,” served as her warm introduction to fans in early 2021. Co-written by Wilson alongside Jeff Pardo and Matthew West, the song catapulted Wilson to mainstream success – making her the first female soloist to top Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart with a debut single since the chart’s launch in 2003.

The RIAA Gold Certified single helped Wilson secure a nomination for Favorite Inspirational Artist at the upcoming American Music Awards – airing live from Microsoft Theater at L.A. LIVE in Los Angeles on Sunday, Nov. 20th, at 8 p.m. EST/PST on ABC. The follow-up to Wilson’s introductory track was her “My Jesus” album, which amassed over 400M streams.

As the biggest debut album by a CCMG artist in over 15 years, the project reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Christian & Gospel Albums and the Top 200 Christian and Gospel charts. A few of the album highlights include “Sunday Sermons,” “Something About That Name,” and “Mamas” with Hillary Scott.
Wilson’s first GRAMMY nomination comes on the heels of the 53rd annual GMA Dove Awards, where she took home two awards for New Artist of the Year and Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year for her breakthrough single, “My Jesus.” 2022 also saw wins for Wilson at the K-LOVE Fan Awards for Female Artist of the Year and Breakout Single, once again for “My Jesus.” Earlier this month, Wilson surprised fans with her six-track Christmas project, featuring the title track, “The Manger,” with Josh Turner.
