New Ground Celebrates Silver Anniversary

Twenty-five years ago a group of friends met just to see what it would “sound like” as a gospel trio and possibly begin a ministry singing songs for Him!!!  With the intention to sing a few church services, gospel events and wherever the call came from this chance meeting is now celebrating their Silver Anniversary.

New Ground is enjoying  gospel music without compromise. It’s been an extraordinary quarter of a century, with over 3500 sings behind them — from their hometown of Scottsboro, Alabama to Juneau, Alaska, then onwards to Scotland with many states and countries in between, the group remains true today and as they continue to  look ahead for more opportunities to further His Name in song!!!

Dale and Robbie Maxwell, founding members of New Ground, are still going strong in their belief that the Lord appointed this union to carry His Word thru music.   They are joined by David Owens, who is celebrating 21 years with New Ground, and Mickey Bell, who has recently returned from his previous stint with the group, as the piano player.

Be watching for many year long celebration events from this exciting Trio during 2018!!!!

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.
