Josh Wilson releases new radio single, 'OK'

Fri, Sep 6th 2019 05:25 pm

Black River Christian artist Josh Wilson released his current single, "OK," and has already broken into the Top 40 in its second week at radio.

This song's deeply personal message was inspired by a season of doubt and anxiety and recently became a fresh reminder for this singer/songwriter.

"This song is all about bringing our brokenness to Jesus and letting him heal us," Wilson shared about the new single. "The message came from a pretty dark season of doubt, depression, and anxiety. I’m so thankful that the last few months have been much better in terms of mental and physical health. Even though I’ve been in a better place recently, I’ve continued to sing 'OK' at every concert, because my guess is that someone each night is in a place where they need to hear the words, 'It’s OK not to be OK.'

“Recently at a show in Sacramento, the person that needed to hear it was me. Earlier that day, shortly after I arrived in California, our rental car was broken into and my backpack was stolen. I do have insurance, and most of what was taken can be replaced, but there were a few sentimental things that are gone forever, like my journal and cards Becca gave me for our 10-year-anniversary. Before I jumped back into piecing things back together, I took time to thank God for loving me and for being the one who holds everything together, even when I can’t (Colossians 1). Last week, I was living out the words to my own song again."

“Bring your broken heart, your secrets and your scars/You were never meant to carry all this weight/Let your walls come down, and let the tears fall out/And know that Jesus love you just the same/It’s okay, not to be okay” (lyrics from "OK").

Wilson will be sharing this song live, as well as so many more of his other hits and songs from his most recent EP, “Don't Look Back,” while on tour this fall. Fans can catch him on his unique solo looping concert experience nights as well as “The Roadshow Futures” Tour. Click here for Wilson’s touring schedule. 

As a multi-instrumentalist and live-looping enthusiast, Wilson has been known to play and record as many as 20 instruments on stage at any given time. Watch the 360° video, “Borrow (One Day At A Time)” – Solo Experience, here. Wilson became a staple at radio, amassing two No. 1's ("Jesus Is Alive" and "Before The Morning") and multiple Top 10 hits, such as “That Was Then, This Is Now,” “Savior, Please,” “I Refuse,” “Fall Apart,” and “Carry Me.” “Before The Morning” landed on Billboard’s Year-End Christian Songs chart at No. 4 in 2012, and that same year Wilson was also named ASCAP's Writer/Artist of the Year. 

He has toured with some of the genre’s biggest acts, including Third Day, Steven Curtis Chapman, Casting Crowns and Matthew West. For more information about Wilson, visit JoshWilsonMusic.com, and follow him on social media: FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
