24 June 2021 - Nashville, TN - It was fall of 2019 when multi-award-winning artist and songwriter Zach Williams kicked off his first major headlining and successful run of "The Rescue Story Tour," and plans were underway to continue into spring 2020. When the pandemic forced tours around the world to cancel, Williams missed the road but used his time to write, record new music, and spend time with his family. And now, he is excited to announce that The Rescue Story Tour is officially back and kicking off this fall. Joined by CAIN and We The Kingdom, this will be a tour not to be missed! Hitting 40 major markets, the tour will kick off on September 23 in Columbus, Ohio, and conclude November 28 when Williams, along with CAIN, will wrap the tour with a special hometown show at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium.
Concertgoers will get to hear many of Williams' popular songs like his recent top-charting and GRAMMY-winning "There Was Jesus" along with longtime favorites such as "Chain Breaker," "Old Church Choir," and "Fear Is A Liar," as well as newer hits such as "Rescue Story," the No. 1 single "Less Like Me," "Stand My Ground," "The Struggle," and many more. 
VIP MEAT & GREET: On the tour's first leg, Williams offered a "VIP Meat & Greet" experience, which he will continue this fall. Held prior to showtime, he will host an exclusive, full-course gourmet meal prepared by his favorite chef, Paul Fields, a world-renowned professional chef from Napa Valley, CA. Attendees also meet with Williams for photos and receive a VIP gift bag that includes a VIP pass, premium concert seats, early entry, and more. Please note, Chef Paul has been working under the highest safety standards and COVID-19 protocols in highly-regulated Napa Valley, CA. He will be implementing those same standards when preparing and serving your food on The Rescue Story Tour.

ABOUT ZACH WILLIAMS: Williams is a husband, father, recording artist, and songwriter, and is now 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, 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. 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.
