~ PHIL WICKHAM DROPS ANCHOR TRACK, “THE JESUS WAY,” FROM HIGHLY ANTICIPATED UPCOMING ALBUM ~
Phil Wickham The Jesus Way
Two-time GRAMMY® nominee Phil Wickham has officially dropped anchor track, “The Jesus Way,” from his highly anticipated new studio album, slated to release this fall. Three years in the making, the standout selection borrows language from The Beatitudes and serves as a personal declaration of allegiance for the singer/songwriter.
“‘The Jesus Way’ is one of the closest songs to my heart that I’ve ever released. It’s impacted my own life personally in a profound way. For me, it’s a line-in-the-sand song about what I want to stand for and who I follow,” Wickham shares. “I’m so excited to sing this song with the Church, and I’m inviting anyone and everyone who follows Jesus to join me in this anthem!”
“The Jesus Way” is the third advance track to preview the respected worship leader’s forthcoming LP, following “Sunday Is Coming” and “This Is Our God,” which holds the No. 1 spot this week on three charts: Mediabase Christian Audience, Mediabase Christian AC and Billboard Christian AC. “This Is Our God” has swiftly evolved into one of the biggest songs of Wickham’s career to date since it launched at radio on Feb. 24 and became the No. 1 most-added song of 2023.
“‘This Is Our God’ is my favorite song to sing and lead right now. This song is a declaration of who Jesus is and what He’s done for us. There is so much faith, hope and truth in it,” Wickham says of his most recent single to summit the charts. “It’s been incredible hearing the Church lift it up and sing it out in the past few months since its release. Thanks to everyone who has been listening to, singing and sharing this one!”
As previously announced, Wickham leads this year’s nominations for the 10th annual K-LOVE Fan Awards, taking place Sunday, May 28, 2023, at Nashville’s historic Grand Ole Opry House, and airing exclusively on Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN) Friday, June 2. Fans can vote for Wickham in five categories, including Artist of the Year, at klovefanawards.com.
Last night, the California native wrapped a final, sold-out weekend of shows concluding his wildly popular “Singalong Tour,” featuring Matt Maher and Leeland.

Who Is 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-lengthalbum (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.
