Although Rita Wilson is well-known as an actress and film producer, her most recent projects have all been connected to her passion for music. After achieving her dream in 2012 with the critically acclaimed album AM/FM – an intimate, elegant, and beautifully sung collection of classics from the ‘60s and ‘70s – Wilson has been focusing on a new component of her musical career as a songwriter. Recently, she has collaborated with a number of talented and successful songwriters, composing original material featured on her second album, self-titled ‪Rita Wilson‬. Her new album Halfway to Home (March 2019) has a fuller sound: Southern California rock meets Nashville country, co-produced by Rita Wilson and ‪Nathan Chapman‬ with additional production from Ron Aniello and ‪John Shanks‬. Many of the songs were co-written with an A-List group of songwriters, including Grammy winner ‪Liz Rose‬, ‪Kristian Bush‬ of ‪Sugarland‬, ‪Mozella‬, ‪Mitch Allan‬, and ‪Kara DioGuardi.

    Thank you for the beautiful song. Only someone who had cancer can know how precious life really is and can celebrate their death while they are alive! I want to be invited to your party!
