The Erwins Earn First #1 Single with “The God I Know”

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Award-winning StowTown recording artists The Erwins are marking another milestone in an acclaimed career with their single, “The God I Know,” reaching #1 on The Singing News Power 50 Weekly Chart and Top 40 Weekly Chart. Penned by Jason Cox and Kenna Turner West, and featured on the group’s bestselling release This Is Love, the song held the chart’s top position for the week of September 20.
“The God I Know” is the highest-charting single in The Erwins’ history, and adds to the growing list of honors the family ensemble has received in the last year alone: a GRAMMY® Award nomination for What Christmas Really Means; a Dove Award for Southern Gospel Recorded Song of the Year for “The Power Of An Empty Tomb”; and a collaboration with the legendary Fisk Jubilee Singers.
“Every night on stage when we sing ‘The God I Know,’ we are able to experience its impact,” said Keith Erwin. “And now, as we hear about the song encouraging radio listeners, we can only praise the Lord for the fruit He’s bringing. It all points back to Christ. We are thankful for the opportunity to sing ‘The God I Know,’ and are so grateful that the message it brings is helping and ministering to people.”

Absolutely Gospel Music
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.
