StowTown Records Artist Honored at Christian Worldview Film Festival

Nashville, TN (March 27, 2018) – StowTown Records artist, Matt Reith of Southern Raised, has been honored with an award in a Christian short film competition. Matt’s video, Wanna Be, features the Southern Raised song “Wanna Be”, which is on their current StowTown Records project, Another World, distributed by Sony/Provident Distribution.

Wanna Be was part of the “Honor Your Father” competition – one of eight categories in the 5th annual Christian Worldview Film Festival. This category is sponsored by the Fatherhood Commission, an organization which champions fatherhood and was co-founded by famed Christian film producer Stephen Kendrick. Over 80 films were screened during the recent 3-day conference focused on equipping and encouraging filmmakers and film enthusiasts from a Biblical worldview.

“I’m honored and thankful to the Lord for allowing me to do this project,” Matt said. “I had a lot of fun doing this film. Big thanks to my family and friends for helping out. I couldn’t have done it without 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.
