IMC Concerts Announces Overwhelming Success of Praisefest Branson Spring Event

Johnson City, TN – Prominent concert promotions company, IMC Concerts, has announced that PraiseFest Branson 2020, scheduled for March 12-14 in Branson, MO, has sold out of the full packages. According to IMC President Landon Beene, limited seating is still available for fans wishing to attend individual sessions. Beene shares, “We are thrilled with the early success of this event. Gospel music fans love coming to Branson. The beauty of the area, coupled with the incredible musical line-up, promise to be a winning combination at PraiseFest Branson.”

Fans who may miss out on the Spring event will have the opportunity to be a part of the new Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat, which will take place October 26-28, 2020, and will also be held at the Mansion Theater. “We believe the Fall event will be a great option for people who are unable to attend our Spring event,” states Beene. “We also believe many of the people who attend Praisefest Branson each year in March will want to come back again for the Fall Retreat.”

The 2020 Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat will include performances by such popular recording artists as Greater Vision, Triumphant Quartet, The Hoppers, The Isaacs, The Whisnants, The Perrys, Brian Free & Assurance, The Nelons, The Ball Brothers, Joseph Habedank and The Erwins. Renown speaker, Jim Cymbala, Pastor of The Brooklyn Tabernacle in Brooklyn, NY, will also be featured. Additionally, popular singer/songwriter and Christian comedian, Mark Lowry will appear at the event. “This event has the potential to be the largest gospel music event of its kind in the Midwest during the Fall season,” Beene states. “We are expecting a sellout, so we are recommending that people reserve their seats right away.”

Make plans now to be a part of the first-ever Praisefest Branson Fall Retreat. Complete information regarding the event is available at or

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.
