Tasha Layton is coming out with a new album! Entitled, “How Far”, Tasha’s album is scheduled for release on May 13th.

Layton co-wrote nine of the project’s 10 tracks, and interestingly enough, How Far also features songwriting contributions from such names as Matthew West, We Are Messengers’ Darren Mulligan, Aaron Shust and Andrew Bergthold (We The Kingdom), among others.

Here is what Tasha had to say about the upcoming release. “The whole album is summed up in the message of the title track, ‘How Far’. It’s about how God continues to reach out and pursue us even when we run from Him. It was God’s love for us that propelled Him to give His life on the cross. Arms stretched open wide—that’s how far He will go.”

Anne Wilson has landed her first Billboard Music Award Nomination for “Top Christian Song” with her breakout hit single “My Jesus,” making her the only female nominated in the category. The 2022 Billboard Music Awards will be held live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 15th at 8pm and air on NBC.  

Here is what she had to say about this honor. “I am blown away and forever grateful that I was nominated for a BBMA. I never dreamed this would happen but I’m so thankful for it. Thank you Billboard for supporting my music and believing in me!! All glory to God.”  

“My Jesus” was the longest-running No. 1 song on the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart of 2021 for seven weeks total. Her hit made her the first female artist to hit the top of the Billboard Christian Airplay chart with a debut song. Her debut album My Jesus will be available this Friday, April 22nd. She also performed this past Saturday at the Grand Ole Opry.

Now I ain’t nothing perfect
I still stumble every single day
I still get knocked down
But the difference now
Is that’s not where I stay
