23 JANUARY 2020 - NASHVILLE, TN - Last fall, multi-award-winning artist and songwriter Zach Williams wrapped "The Rescue Story Tour,"  his first major headlining run, and d ue to its success, he is embarking on an even bigger second leg of the tour. This spring, beginning  March 5 and running through May 9, Williams will hit 40 major markets from California to Florida, such as Clearwater, FL, Houston, TX, Green Bay, WI, Birmingham, AL, and San Francisco, CA, with a handful of the dates are already sold out.

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.
 
"Chain Breaker," his record-breaking and first of three official RIAA®-certified gold singles, 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. Williams is nominated again for the 2020 GRAMMY Awards, which will be held January 26 in Los Angeles. The singles "Old Church Choir" and "Fear Is a Liar" are also both certified gold. 
 
Williams 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. Apple Music chose him as Artist of the Week (2016), while "Chain Breaker" was the top track of 2016 on iTunes' Christian Songs chart and also reached No. 12 on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart. Williams has also been awarded by BMI with four Citation of Achievement awards for his singles "Chain Breaker," "Old Church Choir," and "Fear Is a Liar," recognizing the songs for their national popularity and reach.
