22 April 2013 - Nashville, Tenn - The brand new record from Josh Wilson, Carry Me (Sparrow Records), his fourth project with Sparrow Records, finds Wilson opening up his heart more than ever. Sharing about a very personal health issue dealing with anxiety and panic attacks, these new songs ultimately spread the message that through life's difficult trials, it is only God who can carry us through it all. Released April 9th to much acclaim, numerous reviews and fan comments are pouring in, showing there's no doubt that people love the music of this multi-talented singer, songwriter, musician and storyteller.

MEDIA ACCLAIM:
With comments such as "rich with truth," "authentic," and "effortless," the feedback and reviews have only been outstanding when it comes to talking about Carry Me. Upcoming interviews will soon be posted courtesy of AltRock Live, CCM, Breathecast, and more. Here are a few of the many reviews that have already posted:

Josh Wilson's understated instrumentation and authentic storytelling prove there's still a place in our Lady Gaga world for simple singer-songwriters. Not that there's anything really "simple" about this music. It just seems effortless because Wilson is so good at what he does. And to think an issue with anxiety and panic attacks could have kept us from ever hearing these songs. Thankfully, Wilson found comfort in his faith, emerging on the other side with a collection that addresses the feelings and fears that sometimes get in the way of what we know to be true." - Rhapsody

"...An engaging, thought-provoking, and ultimately uplifting collection of songs that should, if there's any justice in the world, go great lengths toward earning its talented creator an evening's worth of peaceful, uninterrupted sleep." - Jesus Freak Hideout

"These songs are so rich with truth and full of life and God's grace....One of the best and well-rounded records I have heard in a long time." - Worship Leader

"In a genre where many contemporary Christian music artists recycle hooks and regurgitate lines without any plagiaristic shame, Wilson knows how to pierce through boredom with his ingenuity." - Breathecast

" Josh's poignant song writing is coupled with musical excellence...This album is sure to connect with all listeners who like catchy songs filled with truth and yearning for God. Josh invites you into his life in such an authentic and relatable way, you'll feel like you are a lifelong friend after you hear this album. - New Release Tuesday

In the midst of writing songs for Carry Me, Wilson began experiencing severe chest and shoulder pain as well as difficulty breathing, believing he was actually having a heart attack. Yet after numerous negative tests, he tried to get back to his normal life but soon began waking up frantic in the middle of the night, even canceling scheduled performances out of fear. Reconciling these unexpected emotions with his long held beliefs defines Wilson's intentionally joyful and honestly raw new record. Carry Me was produced by Matt Bronleewe (Chris Tomlin).

"Philippians 4 says, 'Do not be anxious about anything . . . the peace of God will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus,'" Wilson shares. "I prayed for that and each day would say, 'God, I can't make it without you. I need you to Carry Me.' And He did, and He still does. He carried me through each day even before I experienced the anxiety, but I just didn't realize it. It took these difficult moments for me to realize how much I need Jesus."

To support the new album, Josh Wilson is currently touring with Third Day and Colton Dixon on The Miracle Tour through the spring. In the coming weeks the tour is hitting the midwest. For the most recent tour schedule and to connect with Wilson, please visit:
