Riley Harrison Clark Signs with Daywind Music Publishing

NASHVILLE, TN (January 21, 2019) — Following the announcement of his solo artist ministry, Riley Harrison Clark has signed as an exclusive songwriter agreement with Daywind Music Publishing.

Clark, formerly a member of Tribute Quartet, released his debut album Welcome To Me with Daywind Records in September of 2018. Since then, he has performed at select dates as a solo artist in addition to his duties with Tribute.

“As a fan of Riley (the artist) I’ve attended numerous concerts where the content of his ministry between the songs was as impressive as his vocal performance,” says Rick Shelton, Vice President of Daywind Music Publishing. “His ability to articulate his message in such a unique manner was in indication that he could pen lyrics that would offer something uncommon and unique to the repertoire of Christian music. After hearing songs he had co-written for his latest album, I was convinced that he should join the Daywind Music Publishing family of songwriters.

Riley Harrison Clark states, “I am beyond thrilled to sign a publishing contract with Daywind Music Publishing. To know that I am joining a roster with some of the most talented and respected writers in the business is a dream come true.”

Daywind Music Publishing is home to an award-winning roster of writers including Lee Black, Jason Cox, Gerald Crabb, Janice Crow, Marty Funderburk, Mike Harland, Devin McGlamery, Tim Lovelace, John Darin Rowsey, Belinda Smith, Sue Smith, Diane Wilkinson, Nathan Woodard and Hunter Leath. Daywind Music Publishing is a subsidiary of Daywind Music Group, one of the premier labels in Christian 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.
