Chonda Pierce Returns To Grand Ole Opry As New Film Hits Theaters April 25

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Chonda Pierce, America’s best-selling female comedian, returned to the Grand Ole Opry® stage over the weekend in advance of her new film, “Chonda Pierce: Enough,” hitting theaters across the country April 25 for one night. Pierce joined a star-studded Opry lineup including Charles Esten, star of CMT’s hit television series “Nashville”; rising Arista Nashville recording artist Seth Ennis; multi-GRAMMY® Award winner Ricky Skaggs; and Grand Ole Opry® members Jeannie Seely, The Whites, and John Conlee, among others.

“I am always honored to be on the Opry, and it was wonderful to return to the stage that holds so many special memories for me,” Pierce said. “It was a joy to reconnect with many artists I am blessed to call friends, and to be able to be there Easter weekend made it especially meaningful.”

Following her 2015 box office hit, “Laughing In The Dark,” “Chonda Pierce: Enough” will hit nearly 800 theaters across the country April 25 at 7 pm for one night. Presented by Fathom Events and Fuseic Entertainment, “Enough” finds Pierce honestly grappling with her sense of worth and identity. Through intimate, behind-the-scenes footage, combined with some of Pierce’s most hilarious performances, viewers are reminded that true identity can only be found in Christ. Tickets for “Chonda Pierce: Enough” are available at, or participating theater box offices.

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.
