The Jordan Family Band Signs With Skyland Records

jordonfamilybandArden, NC. (November 21, 2016) – The Jordan Family Band has signed with Skyland Records, an imprint of the Crossroads Label Group. Consisting of husband and wife Joshua and Randa Jordan and joined by their three sons Hutch, Alex and Grant, this talented group was founded in 2011 in Calhoun, GA. With original songwriting they have a Southern Gospel/Country sound that highlights their multi-instrumental and powerful vocal talents.

On the signing, the Joshua Jordan tell us. “We are so honored and excited to announce that we are now part of the Crossroads family!! We are truly thankful for God’s timing in our ministry, because His will is not always our way.  Now we get the privilege to embark on a new journey with the finest people in Gospel music! We are incredibly thankful and blessed beyond measure!”

Greg Bentley, Crossroads Associate A&R states: “We are always keeping our eyes and ears open for new talent to carry our company on into the future. We’ve been watching this talented young family for over a year now, and just felt like it was time to pursue them to see if there was interest in them joining our roster of artists. It’s not everyday we find a group with the total package of songwriting and great vocals that are able to play live music on stage. Kind of a new version of what we all grew up with in The Hinsons and Hemphills era of Gospel Music. We are excited to be a part of what is in store for The Jordan Family Band.”

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.
