Song and lyric video are out now
In partnership with Essential Worship, Grammy Award-winning artist Zach Williams announced the release of his cover of "Rattle!" featuring Pastor Steven Furtick. Written by Furtick, Chris Brown and Brandon Lake and originally recorded by Elevation Worship, "Rattle!" is one of the newest and fastest-growing anthems for the church in 2020. A lyric video also drops today and can be viewed below.
" 'Impossible' and 'disappointment' are two words that have plagued our culture in this season," Williams shared. "I want these words to be replaced with 'power' and 'miracles.' As a musician with a platform, I want 'My God is able' to rattle the minds of the listeners. The first time I heard this song, the raw power and emotion of this song impacted me greatly, and I want this song to be a reminder to all that God is able and he is doing great things."
A "Rattle!" contest is also well underway with Tunespeak. With already more than 160,000 entries at press time, the contest runs through Dec. 4 and offers numerous giveaways such as a Fender guitar, Alclair monitors, along with Williams and Essential Worship merchandise.

Despite his "Rescue Story Tour" plans postponing due to COVID-19, Williams was able to tour with Big Daddy Weave this past fall on numerous drive-in tours around the U.S. Plans for the upcoming year will soon be announced. And just in time for the holidays, Williams released his resounding version of "Go Tell It On The Mountain," which was recorded at the legendary Fame Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. The music video, which shares the recording of the song, is also out now and can be viewed here.
Williams' latest single, "There Was Jesus," his duet with Dolly Parton, held the No. 1 spot at radio for multiple weeks. And it was a year ago when the duo debuted the song during the live broadcast of the CMA Awards. "There Was Jesus" is featured on “Rescue Story,” which features the Grammy-nominated title track. “Rescue Story” was nominated for a GMA Dove Award (Pop/Contemporary Album of the Year) and won for Best Recorded Music Packaging. Williams was also named this year's GMA Dove Awards Songwriter of the Year (Artist).
As a husband, father, recording artist, and songwriter, Grammy winner (Best Contemporary Christian Album, “Chain Breaker,” 2018) and multi-GMA Dove Awards winner, Williams continues to make history. Achieving multiple weeks at No. 1 with "There Was Jesus," his duet with Parton, along with 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,” 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 Parton at 2019's 53rd Annual CMA Awards, 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”) 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. 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.
From the start, Williams has continuously been on the road, sharing his music and messaging with not only the country but the world.
