Franklin, TN (June 21, 2019)
Multi award-winning Christian music artist and songwriter Zach Williams has announced the release of “Rescue Story,” his brand new song that is now available on all digital and streaming platforms. “Rescue Story” is the first to release from Williams’ upcoming album, slated to release this fall.

The wait is now over for fans who have been eager to hear new music from Williams, whose latest release was the GRAMMY®-nominated EP, 2018’s Survivor: Live from Harding Prison. He recently shared the story behind the new song, “I think the song is going to be relatable to people because everybody has their own rescue story. Mine is the same as anyone who’s been in a hopeless place, and then they found Jesus.”

Williams continues, “I found myself at the end of my rope almost seven years ago touring in a rock & roll band. On the outside, everyone thought I was completely happy but on the inside, I was a wreck and a miserable person. It wasn’t until I found Jesus when I was truly happy and able to enjoy the things in life that I’m now doing. Before I didn’t even enjoy playing music, I left every night with an empty hole. Now, I get to leave fulfilled every single night. When people share their own rescue story with others, it can hopefully bring someone else into a relationship with Jesus.”

“Rescue Story” Lyrics
There I was empty handed
Crying out from the pit of my despair
There you were in the shadows
Holding out your hand you met me there

And now where would I be without you
Where would I be, Jesus

You were the voice in the desert
Calling me out in the dead of night
Fighting my battles for me
You are my rescue story
Lifted me up from the ashes
Carried my soul from death to life
Bringing me from glory to glory
You are my rescue story

You were writing the pages
Before I had a name
Before I needed grace
Singing songs of redemption
Every time I ran away
You were louder than my shame

And now where would I be without you
Where would I be, Jesus

You were the voice in the desert
Calling me out in the dead of night
Fighting my battles for me
You are my rescue story
Lifted me up from the ashes
Carried my soul from death to life
Bringing me from glory to glory
You are my rescue story

You never gave up on me
You never gave up on me
You are my testimony

It was just a mere three years ago when Williams rapidly made a name for himself with his record-breaking debut single, “Chain Breaker,” following it up with two more award-winning songs, “Old Church Choir” and “Fear Is a Liar.” Two versions of his debut album have released, Chain Breaker and the Chain Breaker Deluxe Edition, as well as an EP, Survivor: Live From Harding Prison. Williams has earned a coveted GRAMMY Award (2018) and two additional nominations (2017, 2019), and has won four GMA Dove Awards, two K-LOVE Fan Awards, three gold singles, and numerous other nominations and recognition, all which quickly made him a household name and a staple at radio.
