Christian Music News, New Christian Music News For the third week in a row at radio, "Chain Breaker," the debut single from Essential Records' artist Zach Williams, continues to hold the No. 1 spot of the Christian AC Indicator chart. The song has climbed into top 5 on the Christian Airplay chart and has also been the top-selling single on the iTunes Christian Songs chart for the past few weeks. "Chain Breaker" is also No. 15 on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart, joining such artists as twenty one pilots, Coldplay, Kings Of Leon and Blink-182.

"Chain Breaker" is not only making a huge impact at radio. Its new music video that exclusively debuted with WAY-FM last week temporarily broke down their server due to such high demand. Zach Boehm from WAY-FM Nashville shared, "Zach Williams may be able to add 'Web Breaker' to his resume!" 

Boehm also shared that the music video is deeply resonating with their listeners. "The number of people who are sharing this with friends, saying that 'I need people in my life to hear this song,' is remarkable. The video is just so powerful and so well done." The music video for "Chain Breaker" can be viewed by clicking below.
 


Williams co-wrote "Chain Breaker" with Jonathan Smith and Mia Fieldes. "'Chain Breaker' came from a place of wanting to reach people who are struggling," Williams explains. "It speaks to believers as much as it does to non-believers because we all get to places in our lives where we get lukewarm and we just kind of forget what God's done in our life. The song is very much just the truth of who Jesus is." 

Thanks to this impactful debut song, Zach Williams continues to grow his fan base, with support pouring out from artists such as Chonda Pierce and Chris Tomlin, to name a few. Tomlin even tweeted, "....So so good. Loving hearing it all over radio. Zach, love your voice and this song." Williams got to thank Tomlin personally for the support - and compare their height difference - when they were both in Orlando last month attending CMB/Momentum.  

The Chain Breaker EP is available now digitally at iTunes and Apple Music. Physical copies are for sale on all of Williams' tour dates. The EP, a consistent top 10 seller on iTunes' Christian Albums, is now charting at No. 3. The single continues its stay at No. 1 at iTunes, where for weeks "Chain Breaker" has been one of the top-selling songs on the Christian Songs chart. The single is also currently featured at the top of Apple Music's A-List Christian playlist.

Williams is currently on the road with Rend Collective, hitting 20 markets through November. From January through March, he will then join Big Daddy Weave on tour. For the most updated tour dates, please visit his tour page
