The Guardians Announces New Addition

Nashville, TN (February 22, 2018) – StowTown Records recording artist, The Guardians, has announced their transition from a trio to a quartet. Joining Dean Hickman, John Darin Rowsey and Neil Uhrig is occasional guest bass vocalist, Pat Barker, who has joined the group on a permanent basis.

“Pat’s bass voice is unsurpassed in this industry,” states The Guardians’ Dean Hickman. “When he’s made guest appearances with this group in recent years, he always brought such excitement, energy and true professionalism to the stage. Not only is he a remarkable bass singer, Pat also has a sincere heart for ministry and proclaiming the Gospel. Pat represents the quality and goodness the future of Gospel music holds.”

“I am so honored to be an ‘official’ member of The Guardians,” says Pat Barker. “I have known and loved these guys for many years, and likewise, I’ve followed their musical career during that time. I’ve been blessed to have the occasional opportunity to sing with them in many concerts and church services, so I’ve learned first-hand that the fellows in this group are truly remarkable men who love God. I’m very thankful to be joining their ministry on a full-time basis.”

Producer and StowTown Records co-owner, Wayne Haun, is equally as excited about the addition of Pat Barker to The Guardians. “Pat Barker is one of my favorite singers. His interpretation of a song is always brilliant. The addition of Pat will only enhance an already great sound. I’m ready to get to work with these guys.”

Their transition from a trio to a quartet is effective immediately. They are currently touring with their GMA Dove Award® nominated project Lift Him Up. To learn more about The Guardians, including the group’s tour schedule, visit www.theguardiansmusic.com.

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.
