Rita Wilson
Rita Wilson released her new album Halfway To Home on March 29, 2019 via Sing It Loud/The Orchard. The lead track from Halfway To Home is “Throw Me A Party.” Wilson comments on “Throw Me A Party,” sharing, “When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I had so many different thoughts,” she says. “You’re scared, anxious, you think about your own mortality. So I had a serious discussion with my husband that if anything happens, what I’d like is a party, a celebration. Out of that story, I wrote “Throw Me A Party” with Liz Rose and Kristian Bush - it was very personal, and it really defined a lot of the album.” Where her recent acclaimed record Bigger Picture was spare and intimate, Halfway To Home stakes out new sonic territory - the place where Southern California rock meets Nashville country. Halfway To Home is the second in a series of three new records from Rita, who continues to establish herself as a significant, prolific singer-songwriter. “Wilson (is) even more comfortable as a songwriter,” said Billboard, while Forbes called her voice “smooth as silk.” No less than Michelle Obama described Bigger Picture, which landed at #1 on Amazon’s Singer/ Songwriter chart, as a “beautiful and introspective album,” while Grammy-winner Brandi Carlile said, “PLEASE check it out. You can thank me later!”
Most of the new record was recorded in Nashville and co-produced by Rita and Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Shania Twain). Ron Aniello (Bruce Springsteen, Patti Scialfa) and John Shanks (Bon Jovi, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow) also contributed as producers. Many of the song were co-written by an A-list group including Grammy winner Liz Rose, Kristian Bush of Sugarland, Mozilla (Madonna, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus), Mitch Allan (Demi Lovato), Kara DioGuardi (Pink, Kelly Clarkson) and Emily Shackleton (Carly Pearce). Rita recently made her debut at the historic Grand Ole Opry, presented at the 52nd Annual CMA Awards, performed at the Chris Cornell memorial tribute “I Am The Highway” and Music Strong: Borderline Victims Benefit Concert.
