Rita Wilson Plans on Going for a Grammy

by -

Rita Wilson-AES-060718After the debut of AM/FM last year, Rita Wilson is back at work writing songs for her sophomore album, and she’s aiming for Grammy gold.

The actress/singer/film producer told Rolling Stone that she’s gearing up for another album release. Wilson just wrapped up a gig at 42 Below in New York City last month, a venue near the theater that her husband, Tom Hanks, is performing on Broadway in his Tony nominated role for “Lucky Guy.” Hanks, an Oscar winner, recipient of numerous other awards, and newly named “Most Trusted American,” has set the bar high when it comes to taking home the trophies. But there’s one that Wilson says she has the upper hand on.

“I’m going to be the one with the Grammy,” Wilson told the magazine. “[Tom]‘s gotta back off the Grammy. It was actually funny, because Colin [Hanks] and I both did Broadway before Tom, and there aren’t many things that you can say that you’ve done before Tom, because he gets there quickly. But I’m shutting him out of the Grammys.”

Wilson appeared on Broadway as Roxie Hart in the musical “Chicago,” and Colin Hanks starred in the play “33 Variations.”

Title and release date have not been set yet for Wilson’s next album.
