Wes McMillian is a “Texas born and bred” Christian Country artist with a taste for keeping it Traditional. A line in his self-penned Top Ten chart single "I'm Not That Way Anymore" says it all: "I still like Hank and Haggard, but I'm Not That Way Anymore".
Although a relative newcomer to the music industry, Wes McMillian is certainly no stranger to music. Having written songs for as long as he remembers, only in recent years did this native Texan begin to bring these songs into the public eye. In fact, for many years he refused to even sing publicly so the songs he had been inspired him to write were just played at home for family. Upon the encouragement and prompting of his wife, Laura, Wes recorded his first album of original music in 2010 titled “I’m Not That Way Anymore”.
“The response has exceeded anything we could have imagined! I am constantly overwhelmed that the music God has given me would connect so well with people worldwide. Just goes to prove that He still uses 'the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty’! (1 Cor 1:27)"
His first three radio releases landed in the Top Ten in America – even seeing some Top Ten charting in Europe. Along the way, he has garnered multiple nominations for Horizon, Male Vocalist, Favorite Song and Artist, and Favorite Video. In 2012 he was honored as a recipient of the Artists Music Guild Heritage Award for New Artist of the Year and in 2014 was awarded the Amanda Fessant Award from Agape Fest.
Now, with a new album in hand, Wes is returning to radio with the title track “I Want You To Know” – a song sure to touch those from every walk of life with a story of redemption and hope. Stories of Home, Faith, Family, and Freedom abound in this album sure to rival the best of mainstream country radio.
