Anne Wilson: Embracing the Rebel in Christ, Inspired by Jesus’ Own Rebel Spirit

Anne Wilson assures fans of her Christian music that she is not straying from the faith-based genre. However, her new album Rebel leans heavily into country music, featuring a country vibe throughout its 16 tracks.

Wilson rejects being labelled solely as a country artist, stating that her music is a unique blend of both country and Christian themes.

Despite her success on the Christian charts, her latest album has caught the attention of mainstream country music, earning her a CMT Music Award nomination and a spot on the CMT Next Women of Country list.

Wilson hopes to reach country music fans with her album, even those who do not attend church. Collaborations with artists such as Chris Tomlin, Jordan Davis, and Lainey Wilson are featured on the record.

The title track, Rebel, is meant to inspire Christians to live out their faith boldly in today’s world. Wilson emphasizes the importance of staying true to oneself and staying rooted in faith, even if it means being a “rebel” in today’s society.

The album’s tracks reflect Wilson’s upbringing listening to both Christian and country music, particularly influenced by her roots in Kentucky.
