Bringing the show to more than 26,000 concertgoers in 20 markets around the U.S., the tour included numerous sold-out shows, including Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium and Williams' hometown of Jonesboro, AR. "The Rescue Story Tour" featured special guest artist Josh Baldwin of Bethel Music and was sponsored by Compassion International and Christian Healthcare Ministries. Williams brought a unique aspect to the headlining tour that was a highlight for the fans - the "VIP Meat & Greet" experience. The "VIP Meat & Greet" was held prior to the concerts where Williams hosted an exclusive full-course gourmet meal prepared by Paul Fields, a professional chef from Napa Valley, CA. VIP attendees were also given specialty gift bags, premium concert seats, photo opportunities with Williams, and much more. Additional "Fan Meet & Greet" were also held at select shows. At each show, fans heard many of Williams' hit songs such as the top-charting "Chain Breaker," "Old Church Choir," "Fear Is A Liar," as well as his latest radio hit, "Rescue Story," which is featured on his latest album, Rescue Story. Here are just a few of the fan comments about the tour: "Loved being able to see you live! The concert was amazing! Thank you for a great night!" "We had so much fun at the 'Meat & Greet' and watching you perform live. I still can't stop talking about it! Our whole family will be tuning in to watch you on the CMA's with Dolly!
