The Walkers Accident Damages Equipment Trailer

PERRY, Fla. – (September 6, 2017) – Multi-talented family group The Walkers suffered damages to their trailer on a trip to Kentucky over the course of a recent weekend evangelism stint. The group was headed to Indiana and Kentucky for a weekend of concerts August 25-27.  While traveling on Hwy 231 North in Campbellton, Florida, a semi truck forced the group’s van and trailer off of the road.

As the incident occurred, Gail Walker, who was driving at the time, steered the van onto the side of the road.  Less than a foot on the side of the road was an eight inch curb that the van and trailer ran up on.  Fortunately, there was no damage done to the tires and rims, axles, steering or anything else van related.

However, the trailer suffered quite a bit of damage.  The two rims on the passenger side were bent and the front tire went flat.  The front axle was also bent.  Clothes and shoes went flying in the front of the trailer.  Final damage assessed is that two new wheels and tires are necessary and the front axle must be replaced.

Billy Walker commented, “After 25 years on the road and probably close to 2 million miles traveled, I can count on one hand the number of incidents that we have had.  I’m sure there have been many that we’re unaware of but The Lord has always protected us.”

Dates for the weekend are being rescheduled.

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.
