The Williamsons Headline Gospel Music Night at 119th Annual Grape Festival

TONTITOWN, Ark. – (August 8, 2017) – Multi-award winning group The Williamsons were pleased to take part in the 119th Annual Grape Festival in Tontitown, Arkansas. The event, which started as a church picnic to celebrate the harvest of grapes and other crops, now attracts over 100,000 visitors during the five day event.

Group manager Donnie Williamson said, “We are so happy to be invited to such a great community festival. We are also honored to be involved in the very first night for Gospel music to be included in the celebration. I think it’s appropriate to include the Gospel in a program for something that started as a church function in the late 1800s. We were able to share the Gospel message with thousands.”

Tontitown was established in 1898 by Italian immigrants and established the celebration that same year. It is the longest continuously running festival in the state of Arkansas. The city is also known for its fine Italian cuisine, which is also a major attraction to the Grape Festival. More information can be found on Facebook at Tontitown Grape Festival.

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.
