Nashville, Tenn. (November 3, 2023) — Today, two-time GRAMMY® nominee Phil Wickham unveils surprise song “Just Too Good” — a gift for his wife, Mallory, in honor of the couple’s 15th wedding anniversary. Fans can stream the personal track HERE.
"This song is unique because it was written for my wife, Mallory. Just yesterday we celebrated 15 years of marriage and as a surprise and a present for her, I wrote and recorded this song, “Just Too Good." says Wickahm. "So Mallory, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! This one’s for you. I love you, and I’m so proud of you. The last 15 years have really been “just too good.” I’m looking forward to the next 15 years and the next and the next with you. Huge thanks to my long time friend and producer, Jonathan Smith, for helping me pull this off. You killed it again bro!”

This heartfelt, melodic release — reflecting back and showcasing a beautiful story of love and commitment – drops directly after the powerful new Christmas anthem, “Manger Throne,” written with Jonathan Smith and Tony Wood. Fans can listen to the fresh holiday offering HERE.

“More than a Christmas song, this is a worship song," Wickham shares. "Every Christmas season, when I take the time to think on it, I am amazed in a greater way of the moment when Creator stepped into creation. God in human flesh. Heaven walking on earth. Everything about how Jesus came was different than what we would have expected, and also far better. He met us right in our humanity. Our dirt. Our mess. That’s what my new song, ‘Manger Throne,’ is all about. He could have marched right into the heart of Rome and showed them splendor like they’d never seen before. But He had a better story, and it started in Bethlehem and ended with a Risen King. Praise the Lord the story still continues with us today.”

Additionally, Wickham has announced dates for his annual “BEHOLD Christmas Nights” outing. Coming to three states and five cities in 2023, with special guest Tasha Layton, the tour has become a yearly tradition for the chart-topping singer.

The “BEHOLD Christmas Nights” run will cap a phenomenal year for the prolific songwriter, respected worship leader and award-winning artist, who released his critically acclaimed studio project, I Believe, in August. The album’s title-cut currently sits in the Top 15 on the Billboard Audience chart, Mediabase AC Monitored chart and the Mediabase Audience chart. Moreover, Wickham recently received two Billboard Music Award nods: one in the category of Top Christian Artist and a second nomination for Top Christian Song for his No. 1 hit, “This Is Our God.” Winners for the 2023 Billboard Music Awards will be announced live Sunday, Nov. 19, 2023.

“BEHOLD Worship Nights” 2023 Tour Dates:

11/30 — Austin, TX

12/1 — Houston, TX

12/2 — Bossier City, LA

12/3 — Dallas, TX

12/5 — Fontana, CA (sold out)

About Phil Wickham:

Phil Wickham is a GRAMMY® nominated artist and leader in the modern worship movement, having penned countless songs sung in churches around the world. Most recently, his single, “This Is Our God,” opened the pages of 2023 with a wellspring of declarative praise to our God who saves. Also in 2023, the artist was nominated for two GRAMMY® awards in the category of “Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song,” recognizing the songs, “Hymn of Heaven” and “Holy Forever.” Hymn of Heaven, Wickham’s latest full-length album (June 25, 2021, Fair Trade Services), won him “Worship Album of the Year” at the 2022 GMA Dove Awards, while he was named “Songwriter of the Year” as well as awarded “Worship Recorded Song of the Year” for the title track, “Hymn of Heaven.” In addition, the song, “Battle Belongs,” topped five different radio charts for multiple weeks. This powerful album was written during a year when the family of God couldn’t physically gather in houses of worship around the world. “Hymn of Heaven is full of praise and thankfulness, just lifting up the name of Jesus and speaking what we really know is the reality, even though we don’t see it,” he says. “All I want to do is facilitate moments where people can encounter the presence of God.” Wickham’s anthemic “Living Hope,” an RIAA Gold®-certified hit, earned him a GMA Dove Award for “Worship Recorded Song of the Year” in 2019, while his first RIAA Gold®-certified single, “This Is Amazing Grace,” was his first career No. 1. This iconic song held the top spot for thirteen consecutive weeks and was named Billboard’s No. 1 “Christian Airplay Song of the Year” in 2014, as well as BMI’s “Christian Song of the Year” in 2015. Wickham’s music has received hundreds of millions of streams across multiple platforms, with his discography including eight full-length projects, several Christmas releases, and a series of popular Singalong records that capture Wickham’s songs as they do what they were always meant to do — which is giving people language to sing to God.
