It was last month when Williams released “Rescue Story,” the new single from his upcoming studio album slated to release this fall. “I think it is going to be relatable to people because everybody has their own rescue story,” he recently shared the story behind the new song. “Mine is the same as anyone who’s been in a hopeless place, and then they found Jesus.” Williams is excited to share “Rescue Story” live on the road with the fans, along with more songs from the new album as well as from his GRAMMY®-winning debut album Chain Breaker and GRAMMY-nominated album, Survivor: Live From Harding Prison.

As a husband, father, recording artist, and songwriter, GRAMMY® winner (Best Contemporary Christian Album, Chain Breaker, 2018) and multi-GMA Dove Awards winner, Zach Williams continues to make history. 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. The singles “Old Church Choir” and “Fear Is a Liar” are also both certified gold.

He’s 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.  

Josh Baldwin joined the Bethel Music Collective in 2014 and regularly leads worship at Bethel Church and tours domestically and internationally. Baldwin’s newest single, “Let the Redeemed,” released summer of 2019, highlights God as a Deliverer who leads us out of the desert. His single “Stand in Your Love,” featured on Bethel Music’s latest album VICTORY, ranked No. 2 on Billboard Christian Airplay Charts. Baldwin’s greatest motivation as a worshipper and songwriter is connecting others to the Father’s heart and ushering them into the presence of God.
