Zach Williams, the two-time GRAMMY Award winner, multi-GMA Dove Award winner, and multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter, officially releases his new album, A Hundred Highways, today. The anticipated 15-track project is available courtesy of Sony Music/ Provident Entertainment.
A Hundred Highways is Williams’ faith on full display from beginning to end, with each song built on his unchanging love for Jesus. “This record feels more like me than anything else I’ve done,” Williams shares. “It’s the most ‘Zach’ record I’ve made. I wasn’t concerned about if it fits in any certain pocket, I just wrote about my life experiences and the things I’m feeling and living.”
It’s been three years since Williams released his previous project Rescue Story, which followed his GRAMMY Award-winning album, 2017’s Chain Breaker. While the former album sang of redemption and God’s love, A Hundred Highways is redemption lived out, forgiveness explored, and songs of love for his wife and family, all offering a true reflection of a man who’s found a Savior and is never letting go. Each song offers his signature blend of country-meets-rock-meets-Gospel, all expertly blended with his genre-defining vocals that deliver a life fully lived. A Hundred Highways was produced by his longtime musical partner, multi-award winner Jonathan Smith.
The album’s first single, “Heart Of God,” continues to make an impact around the world and in its first week alone received an astounding 1.5 million listens. Others include “Like A Billy Graham Revival,” a song that peeks into his childhood memories with his grandparents and traveling to concerts on weekends, “Jesus’ Fault,” the duet with country star Walker Hayes, and “Love Is A Battleground.” an ode for his wife, to name a few.
It was announced earlier this month that “There Was Jesus,” his GRAMMY Award-winning song with Dolly Parton, became certified RIAA Platinum®. They were able to share in the celebration of the song’s success during Williams’ taping for Dolly Parton’s “Mountain Magic Christmas” TV special. Set to air this holiday season on NBC, along with Williams other guest stars appearing are Jimmy Fallon, Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley Cyrus, and Jimmie Allen, among others.
Along with “There Was Jesus,” Williams is also sharing many of his new songs on his current headlining tour. Running through November 20, the Zach Williams Fall ’22 Tour is visiting 36 major markets such as New York City, Colorado Springs, Baton Rouge, Phoenix, and Austin. Additionally, for VIP ticket holders and in partnership with the Salvation Army, for every VIP ticket sold a food box will be given to a family in need in the community, providing enough meals to feed a family of four for an entire week. The Salvation Army partnership will continue through the holidays when he embarks on his I Don’t Want Christmas To End Tour, which runs through December.
