Nashville, Tennessee (March 8, 2016) Banner Music is proud to announce the addition of award-winning singer/songwriter Jerry Salley to their creative family.
“We are thrilled to have veteran songwriter Jerry Salley on staff at Banner Music. His career accomplishments speak to his hard work and dedication to this industry and we look forward to his continued success as part of our company,” said co-owner Camilla Kleindienst.
Salley, who co-wrote “Outlaw State of Mind” on Chris Stapleton’s recent Grammy-winning country album, Traveller, has penned over 400 cuts in country, bluegrass and gospel genres. His extensive talent has garnered him recordings by multiple artists such as Sir Elton John (“Where We Both Say Goodbye”—a duet with Australian artist Catherine Britt), Reba McEntire (“I’m Gonna Take That Mountain” and “Close To Crazy”), and includes the 1990 Dove Award’s Inspirational Song of the Year, “His Strength is Perfect”, co-written with and recorded by Steven Curtis Chapman and now found in Church Hymnals.
“I am happy to join the creative minds here [at Banner Music] whose heart and family atmosphere mirror the passion of their work,” said Salley.
Salley, SESAC’s Country Songwriter of the Year in 2003, was also nominated in 2014 by The International Bluegrass Music Association for Songwriter of the Year. His winning streak continued this year with his three tracks on the SteelDriver’s Grammy Award winning Best Bluegrass Album,The Muscle Shoals Recordings.
In October of 2015, Salley released the bluegrass/gospel project Gospel From My Grassroots that includes guest vocals from Steven Curtis Chapman to Salley’s daughter, Maggie, with contributing harmonies.

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.
