The Erwins Step In to Spolight at NRB 2021

NASHVILLE, Tenn.—GRAMMY®-nominated and Dove Award-winning StowTown recording artist The Erwins took center stage at the National Religious Broadcasters Convention (NRB), held recently at Dallas’ Gaylord Texan Resort. Making their first appearance at NRB, the acclaimed sibling vocal group performed selections from their latest recording, This Is Love, at the conference’s opening session, which also featured keynote addresses from Dr. Mark Jobe, president of Moody Bible Institute, and author/speaker/podcaster Paula Faris, known for her tenure as co-anchor of “Good Morning America Weekend” from 2014-2018, and as co-host of “The View” from 2015-2018. 

While at NRB, The Erwins made a number of high-profile media appearances, including live interviews on such national radio broadcasts as “The Todd Starnes Show” and “Bill Martinez Live,” among others. In addition, international Christian missions media ministry TWR (Trans World Radio) hosted a reception for the group, during which they performed and met with NRB attendees.

Absolutely Gospel Music
Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as SoGospelNews.com, 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 AbsolutelyGospel.com. 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.
