ABOUT ZACH WILLIAMS:
As a husband, father, recording artist, and songwriter, GRAMMY® winner (Best Contemporary Christian Album, Chain Breaker, 2018), four-time GRAMMY nominee, and multi-GMA Dove Awards winner, Zach Williams continues to make history. Achieving two consecutive radio No. 1 hits for 35 weeks as a debut artist ("Chain Breaker," "Old Church Choir") Williams' music comes from a place of humility and honesty as his songs are a direct reflection of God's redemption in his life.
His record-breaking single "Chain Breaker," now certified RIAA Platinum, has impacted millions of people around the world, earning Williams his first GRAMMY nomination in 2017 for Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song, two Billboard Music Award nominations (Top Christian Song, Top Christian Album) and a 2018 American Music Award nomination for Favorite Artist - Contemporary Inspirational. He also received another GRAMMY nod in 2019 for Best Contemporary Christian Music Album, Survivor: Live from Harding Prison and in 2020 for "Rescue Story" (Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song).
The album Chain Breaker has just been certified RIAA Gold, and the singles "Old Church Choir" and "Fear Is a Liar" are also both gold certified. Williams, who performed with Dolly Parton ("There Was Jesus") at the 2019 Country Music Awards, has won four GMA Dove Awards (Artist of the Year, New Artist of the Year; Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year, "Chain Breaker" and Pop/Contemporary Song "Old Church Choir") and a K-LOVE Fan Award ("Chain Breaker," Breakout Single).
Williams was also named Billboard's 2017 Top Christian Male Vocalist and New Artist of the Year, as well as CCM Fan Awards' Favorite New Artist Of The Year.
