Nashville, Tenn. June 11, 2010… Sparrow Records’ critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Josh Wilson garnered his first No. 1 hit as his current single “Before the Morning” topped the Inspo charts at No.1 and has been in the Top 5 for nearly two months on the AC Monitored and AC Indicator charts.

Grant Hubbard, Vice President of National Promotion at EMI CMG comments, “Josh is a gifted artist with a knack for writing songs that not only can get played on radio, but have a significant emotional connection with the listener. His song “Before The Morning” is just that. We’ve heard stories across the U.S. of this song touching the hearts and lives of listeners. We are extremely excited about this song being Josh’s first #1 hit and appreciate radio’s support.”

This hit track is included on Wilson’s new self-titled compilation project available nationwide this week. The new album features a collection of his 10 biggest hits from his first two records, Trying to Fit the Ocean In A Cup and Life Is Not A Snapshot which includes the chart-topper “Savior, Please” and No. 1 single “Before The Morning.”

“Before the Morning,” was inspired by some of Wilson’s close friends Tim and Paula Beal, whose son Jayken was born with a life-threatening medical condition. As the family trusted God fully with their son’s life, Wilson felt compelled to share their testimony of perseverance. Using this emotional and inspiring story, he wrote “Before The Morning” to reflect a story of joy and hope amidst a time of suffering and pain. Watch a powerful in-depth behind the song documentary here:

"I wrote 'Before The Morning' because I was so moved and encouraged by the Beal's story,” says Wilson. “I never anticipated the way people would respond to the song, and I'm thankful that so many have found hope in its lyrics - which, of course, are simply God's promises to be with us in times of trouble."

This summer, Wilson will spend some time in the recording studio working on new material for his next album with critically acclaimed producer Matt Bronleewe (Chris Tomlin, Michael W. Smith, Casting Crowns). Following this recording session, he will head out on the road in the fall accompanying award-wining artist, Matthew West and new artist Johnny Diaz on “The Story Of Your Life Tour”.
