Zach Williams' LP 'I Don't Want Christmas To End' is reaching the masses; tour in full swing
With Zach Williams' first-ever full-length Christmas album, I Don't Want Christmas To End, out now with Provident Label Group/Sony Music, this two-time GRAMMY®-winning hitmaker knew he needed the right sound and vibe to celebrate the season year after year.
I Don’t Want Christmas To End goes beyond that - it’s a holly-jolly-party-turned-jam-session worthy of its title, and according to Zach, that’s due to recording at FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, where legends such as The Gregg Allman Band, Aretha Franklin, and Little Richard have recorded. At first listen, there's no question Zach brings southern rock & roll soul back to life through each and every one of the album's ten tracks. “We got down there and all the original gear is still there from the Sixties,” he says, “the original rooms, the original console. Recording there really made the songs come alive even more than I thought it was going to.” Equal parts fun and nostalgic with a dash of prayerful hope, this classic-inspired album is easily a new Christmas favorite, for now, and for years to come.
Zach shares more about the making of the album with American Songwriter, while Huffington Post included the title track in its "Best New Christmas Songs of 2021," listing along with the likes of Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift, Kelly Clarkson, and others. Parade also highlighted the album in its annual Christmas music lineup. Be sure to check these out!
