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 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). “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 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.
