With Zach Williams' first-ever full-length Christmas album, I Don't Want Christmas To End, out now with Provident Label Group/Sony Music, this two-time GRAMMY®-winning hitmaker knew he needed the right sound and vibe to celebrate the season year after year. 
 
I Don’t Want Christmas To End goes beyond that - it’s a holly-jolly-party-turned-jam-session worthy of its title, and according to Zach, that’s due to recording at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, where legends such as The Gregg Allman Band, Aretha Franklin, and Little Richard have recorded. At first listen, there's no question Zach brings southern rock & roll soul back to life through each and every one of the album's ten tracks. “We got down there and all the original gear is still there from the Sixties,” he says, “the original rooms, the original console. Recording there really made the songs come alive even more than I thought it was going to.” Equal parts fun and nostalgic with a dash of prayerful hope, this classic-inspired album is easily a new Christmas favorite, for now, and for years to come.
 
Zach shares more about the making of the album with American Songwriter, while Huffington Post included the title track in its "Best New Christmas Songs of 2021," listing along with the likes of Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, and others. Parade also highlighted the album in its annual Christmas music lineup. Be sure to check these out!

ABOUT ZACH WILLIAMS: Williams is a husband, father, recording artist, and songwriter, and a two-time GRAMMY® winner (Chain Breaker, 2018; "There Was Jesus," 2021). Along with an additional five GRAMMY nominations, Williams is also a multi-GMA Dove Awards and K-LOVE Fan Awards winner and nominee.
He made history with two consecutive radio No. 1 hits for 35 weeks as a debut artist ("Chain Breaker," "Old Church Choir"), and "There Was Jesus," his duet with Dolly Parton, topped the charts for multiple weeks. Most of all, 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 RIAA®-certified Platinum single from the album Chain Breaker (RIAA-certified Gold), 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 has 2018 and 2021 American Music Award nominations. 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). "Old Church Choir" and "Fear Is a Liar" are both RIAA-certified Gold.
 
Williams performed his RIAA-certified Gold single "There Was Jesus" live with Parton on the 53rd Annual CMA Awards. The song also made the Pandora Top Spins chart for twelve consecutive weeks and was named one of Pandora’s top 100 songs across all genres. Additionally, "There Was Jesus" was WAY-FM's top song of 2020. 
 
He has won six GMA Dove Awards (Artist of the Year; New Artist of the Year; Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year, "Chain Breaker;" Pop/Contemporary Song, “Old Church Choir;” Songwriter of the Year/Artist; Recorded Music Packaging, Rescue Story). He was also named Billboard's 2017 Top Christian Male Vocalist and New Artist of the Year and 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. 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.
