18 October 2017 - Nashville, Tenn - Provident Label Group/Sony Music artist Zach Williams was named New Artist of the Year at last night's 48th Annual GMA Dove Awards. His record-breaking No. 1 song "Chain Breaker" also won for Pop/Contemporary Recorded Song of the Year. He was also nominated in three other categories and tied for most artist nods with Lauren Daigle. 
 
Williams kicked off the awards with a stunning performance of "Chain Breaker" and was joined by The Oak Ridge Boys and Travis Greene. 
 
The 48th Annual GMA Dove Awards were held live last night to a sell-out crowd in Nashville, Tennessee at Lipscomb University's Allen Arena. The show will air on TBN Sunday, October 22 at 8pm CT.
 
RADIO & TOUR: Williams' current radio single, "Old Church Choir," continues to hold the No. 1 spot at radio, which has held that position for an astounding ten weeks in a row. The song, his second single from the album Chain Breaker, put Williams in the history books as the first debut artist to have two back-to-back No. 1 singles.

ABOUT ZACH WILLIAMS: As a husband, father, singer, recording artist, songwriter and worship leader, Zach Williams is already making history. Achieving two consecutive radio No. 1 hits 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" has already impacted millions of people around the world and even earned him his first GRAMMY® nomination (Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song), a Billboard Music Award nomination (Top Christian Song) and winning a K-LOVE Fan Award (Breakout Single). 
 
"Chain Breaker" was Williams' debut single to hit radio, reaching the top spot for an astounding 15 consecutive weeks. With his follow up "Old Church Choir," which at press time is No. 1 at radio on multiple charts and holding for ten weeks (NCA Monitored), Williams officially made history, according to Billboard, as the first debut artist to have two back-to-back No. 1 singles.
 
On September 15, he released Chain Breaker: Deluxe Edition (Provident Label Group/Sony Music). This deluxe version includes four new songs in addition to the 2016 debut of Chain Breaker, including his rendition of "Midnight Rider" by The Allman Brothers Band.
 
Apple Music chose him as Artist of the Week in December 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. He has already toured with Chris Tomlin, Rend Collective, Big Daddy Weave and many more.
