Nashville, TN (October 1, 2022)
Two-time GRAMMY Award winner and multi-platinum selling artist Zach Williams has released his first studio album in three years, A Hundred Highways. The long awaited 15-track offering is Williams’ most authentic work to date—touching on his battle with addiction, anxiety, and insecurity to ultimately come out on the other side with a revived sense of clarity on life. Combining a southern rock spirit and old school country soul, Williams has delivered a riveting body of work reflective of his experiences which he describes as “my most ‘me’ record yet.”
”A Hundred Highways is a collection of songs that reflect my journey,” shares Williams. “I’ve gone down many different roads and they all brought me to where I am now.”

The album kicks off with a spark provided by the explosive first track “Big Tent Revival”—a boot-kickin’ jaunt down memory lane for Williams, reflecting on trips with his grandparents to fairs and concerts growing up. Perhaps the most personal track on the album, “Looking for You,” is a self-reflection of Williams’ journey to fill holes in his life and how those things he thought would make him happy didn’t. Punctuated by soft slide guitar and piano, “Love is a Battleground” is a song of gratitude to Williams’ wife for sticking by him through his wildest and most reckless times. His country influence comes through on “Jesus’ Fault” featuring Walker Hayes. The single marks the first time Williams cut a song he didn’t write on but felt compelled to record after hearing a demo and seeing himself in the lyrics.
Williams is currently on a 35-city headline tour, Zach Williams Fall ’22 Tour, in support of A Hundred Highways. The shows, with special guest Ben Fuller, will feature new music from A Hundred Highways, as well as many of his most recognizable hits. For this Fall tour, as well as his I Don’t Want Christmas To End Tour, Williams has partnered with the Salvation Army to provide food boxes, which will contain a week’s worth of food for a family of four.
