Daniel Mount Launches New Website –

Southern Gospel journalist Daniel J. Mount has announced a new website, Expository Songs ( An expository song is a song where the main idea of a passage of Scripture is the main idea of the song.
“I have two audiences in mind,” Mount said. “First, I want to help pastors and worship leaders find songs from all eras of Christian music drawn from their sermon texts. Second, I want to help fans learn more about how their favorite songs fit into the overall narrative of Scripture.”
Mount ran Southern Gospel Journal from 2006-2014. The research project that ultimately became Expository Songs started with a similar column on that website that ran from November 2011 – May 2013.
Last year, in an Absolutely Gospel interview, he was asked if he would ever return to the blogging world. His tongue-in-cheek reply was, “Perhaps. I’m considering taking Southern Gospel Journal’s least popular feature and turning it into a website of its own.”
This is that project.

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.
