As we enter the Easter season, Zach Williams has released a new song titled "Empty Grave." Available now at all digital outlets, a lyric video also accompanies the song and can be viewed below. "Empty Grave" is also available on vinyl at all of his tour stops. The Grammy Award-winning artist will be sharing the song live when he embarks on his spring 2020 tour, which kicks off next week and runs through May 9.

I see an empty grave // I hear the heavens waking // Angels in jubilation

That stone's been rolled away // I feel the darkness breaking // I bet the devil's shaking

Somebody celebrate // I see an empty grave – “Empty Grave"

Williams' spring run of "The Rescue Story Tour," which follows his highly successful fall tour, will hit 40 major markets from California to Florida, with many of the dates already sold out. The tour will welcome supporting act We The Kingdom ("Holy Water") and introduce the sibling trio Cain.

As previously mentioned, fans will get to hear "Empty Grave" on the tour along with many of Williams' other songs, such as the top-charting hits "Chain Breaker," "Old Church Choir," "Fear Is A Liar," and his current radio single "Rescue Story." Currently climbing the radio charts, "Rescue Story" also earned Williams his fourth Grammy nomination (Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song). 

Tickets are on sale now for "The Rescue Story Tour."

As a husband, father, recording artist, and songwriter, Grammy winner (Best Contemporary Christian Album, “Chain Breaker,” 2018), 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 for “Survivor: Live from Harding Prison,” and in 2020 for "Rescue Story" (Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song). The singles "Old Church Choir" and "Fear Is a Liar" are also both certified Gold. 

Williams, who performed with Dolly Parton ("There Was Jesus") at the 2019 Country Music Awards, has 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 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.
