I’m so excited for all The Lord will do through these songs! Beyond grateful.”

The 2022 Billboard Music Awards will air LIVE from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 15th at 8 pm ET/5 pm PT on NBC.
“My Jesus,” which was the longest-running No. 1 song on the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart of 2021 for seven weeks total. The song also made Wilson the first female artist to hit the top of the Billboard Christian Airplay chart with a debut song. Anne’s soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics have garnered the emerging artist over 170 million career streams, making her one of the most successful debut acts of 2021.
The album is Anne’s testimony of her life’s triumphs, devastating loss and everything in-between that have set the stage for this exciting next chapter. Standout track “Mamas,” co-written with Matthew West and Jeff Pardo, is a heartfelt tearjerker about the special bond between a mother and her daughter. Featuring Hillary Scott (Lady A), the song is particularly meaningful for Anne, a lifelong country music fan.
