"Trust in Me" was released to radio in February 2001, followed by "Search Me" in June 2001.

The album received praise and positive reviews, many focusing on the lyrical depth, Katy's personality and stage presence. Named Best New Artist by Christianity Today and the album as one of the best in 2001! "Trust In Me" features Audio Adrenaline's Mark Stuart as background vocals and Katy's dad, Keith, reads the bible verse at the end.

Unfortunately, the end came as Pamplin Music shut down in December 2001.
Copies of the album are rare and pricey because of who Katy Hudson became. :)
