Jason Crabb to be Inducted into Kentucky Music Hall of Fame

Nashville, TN (August 9, 2017) – Jason Crabb, GRAMMY® winner and 21-time GMA Dove Award winning artist, will be honored by his home state of Kentucky when he is inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame in 2018. The announcement was made today during a press conference at the Hall of Fame in Mount Vernon, KY.

Crabb will be honored alongside fellow inductees David “Stringbean” Akeman, Dale Ann Bradley,  Billy Ray Cyrus, Jackie DeShannon and Bobby Lewis. The induction ceremony will be held May 11, 2018 at the Center For Rural Development in Somerset, KY.

“I am completely humbled and honored to be included in the 2018 class of inductees into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and to share it with this amazing list of fellow Kentuckians,” said Crabb. “I thank God, every single day, for taking this country boy from Beaver Dam, KY and using him. I can’t say thank you enough. It just goes to show you, God’s dreams are truly bigger than anything we can ever think or imagine. To God be the glory.”

The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame & Museum honors Kentucky-born performers, songwriters, publishers, promoters, managers and other music professionals who have made significant contributions to the music industry locally and around the world.

The 2018 class will join an elite roster of individuals including Loretta Lynn, Bill Monroe, Florence Henderson, Clarence Spalding, Rosemary Clooney, EXILE, Wynonna & Naomi Judd, Steven Curtis Chapman, and many more.

This is the second Kentucky honor bestowed upon Crabb. In 2015, his hometown of Beaver Dam, KY named a street after him, Jason Crabb Drive.

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.
