Update On Hovie Walker

Thursday AM update on Hovie, from his wife:

3/23 – 7am UPDATE:

Surgeon just came in, listed Hovie as critically ill. He had several arythmias overnight, but doctor feels the need to remove the breathing tube sometime later today but will keep the balloon pump in for another day or two. They are going to begin decreasing the pain meds but of course won’t have him up walking yet with the balloon pump still in.

Please pray that as the breathing tube comes out and the pain meds are decreased, that he will be able to lie flat with no pain…not being able to do this was one of the factors that caused the flatline before.

As always, prayers are appreciated…I am feeling them!!!

Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
