The opening track of In It to Win It is a personal testament from Charlie Wilson, who has talked frankly over the years about overcoming a drug addiction that took him all the way down to being homeless. The song was released as the lead single from the project.
"'I'm Blessed' says exactly where I am in my life, blessed to still be making music that people want to hear," said the former Gap Band frontman. "2016 has been a tough year for so many people around the world and I am proud to release a song that reminds us that we can all find some blessings in our lives."
The song features a guest verse by T.I. in which he shares how his journey is filled with God's blessings.
The song was Charlie Wilson's first entry on Billboard's Hot Gospel Songs chart, and it climbed all the way to the top.
It really was so easy for Linda Ronstadt to score a hit with her Buddy Holly cover of "It's So Easy." She would sometimes change the lyric to: "It's so easy to have a hit, all you have to do is recycle it."
