The Nelons Kick Off East Coast Radio Tour

nelonstourHendersonville, TN (May 25th, 2016) – While many artists are enjoying time off between dates, The Nelons are traveling throughout the Eastern portion of the United States this week visiting with Southern Gospel radio.

As part of a four-day tour, The Nelons will make stops at as many radio stations in the West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina area as possible; thanking and encouraging those who work so hard behind the scenes to promote Southern Gospel music and make it available to fans across the country.

The Nelons began this radio tour on the heels of their recent GMA Hall of Fame induction, and release of a brand new limited edition EP, Stronger Together, available now digitally.  The first radio single from the project, ‘Just Can’t Make It By Myself,’ continues to impact Southern Gospel radio, hitting the #5 spot on the Absolutely Gospel Music Charts.  The Nelons plan to release two full-length projects, Stronger Together and Family Harmony, in August.

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.
