The Williamsons Win Mixed Group of the Year at 2021 Diamond Awards

Nashville, TN (March 21, 2021) Family Music Group would like to congratulate the Williamsons for winning the prestigious Diamond Award for Mixed Group of the Year.  The Williamsons have been a fan favorite for many years, winning many Diamond Awards, multiple #1 hits, multiple magazine covers, main stage performances at the National Quartet Convention, Silver Dollar City, Dollywood, and many other major venues! 

Les Butler states, “In my opinion, the Williamsons are the best mixed quartet in Southern Gospel Music and it certainly validates my thoughts when the fans agree and award them as such!”  Lisa Williamson added, “Thank you so very much to everyone who took the time to vote for us! I came across a scripture a while back that pretty much sums up how I feel right now. 1 Chron 17:16 says this, ‘Then King David went in and sat before the Lord; and he said: “Who am I, O Lord God? And what is my house, that you have brought me this far?’  I feel just like King David! God has been so very good to us! Who are we to deserve His blessings? We’re nothing special. Awards like these may not mean a lot to some people, but to us, they are just another sign that we need to keep on doing what we’re doing.”

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.
