Matt Felts Injured In Accident

Nashville, TN (April 5, 2021) On Saturday, April 3, Matt Felts was injured in an accident while riding horseback on a mountain trail.

According to a statement from Matt, he had been riding with friends for several hours when they took a break. When he attempted to mount his horse, he experienced a tack failure and his saddle began to slide. When the saddle slipped, it spooked the horse and it took off. Matt fell off and onto a fallen tree.

An ATV was used to get Matt out of the woods and to the main road where a car was waiting to take him to the hospital. The fall resulted in six broken ribs and severe bruising. “The pain has been indescribable but I’m blessed. This could have been much worse,” stated Matt. “Thank you to everyone who has reached out and those who have been praying. It is very appreciated,” Matt added.

Matt is expected to make a full recovery over the next few months, and will kick off his 2021 tour, “The Music Lives On” in late May.

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.
