Top 100 Songs of 2020 and 25 Most Played Artists of the Year

Legacy Five takes the #1 Song of the Year this year. Even though the song only spent four weeks in the #1 spot over the course of the year, “I Believe the Book”‘s impressive 37 week run on the chart was enough to take the crown this year as well. The chart saw a total of 18 songs reach the #1 spot by 14 different artists. Four artists shot multiple songs to the top spot – Karen Peck & New River (“The God I Serve” and “Made Right”), Bowling Family (“The People That God Gives You” and “Behold the Lamb”), Tribute Quartet (“The Healer Hasn’t Lost His Touch” and “Fear Not”), and The Perrys (“It Never Gets Old” and “Never a Time”).

Absolutely Gospel Music
Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as SoGospelNews.com, 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 AbsolutelyGospel.com. 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.
