The Kingsmen Tell Christmas Story With Single Release “Tell It On The Mountain”

Arden, North Carolina (December 4, 2020) — Legendary gospel quartet The Kingsmen is telling once more the joyful story of Christmas with “Tell It On The Mountain,” an original song with an imaginative nod to an earlier retelling, written by the group’s Chris Bryant. Though time has passed, the truths of Jesus’ birth remain the same, and the story and good news should still be shared everywhere.

“As The Kingsmen sat down and began looking for original Christmas songs, I had the idea for this upbeat traditional quartet tune. I wanted to write something that would spread not only the joy of the Christmas story, but also the promise of hope that it still means to the world today,” says Bryant. “‘Tell It On The Mountain’ is an exciting declaration of the good news that we still need to go out and share. It was an honor to have the rest of the guys fall in love with this song and to be able to record it. It’s my first venture back into writing since I was a kid. I believe that all Southern Gospel fans will really enjoy it.”

Though it references familiar Christmas songs, “Tell It On The Mountain” delivers the story of Christ’s birth to listeners in a thrilling contemporary form, driven by Bryant’s heartfelt lead, a gripping tenor vocal from Chris Jenkins, and the award-winning quartet’s rich blend of harmonies.

“Tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Tell it on the mountain
Good tidings now to share
What we knew before is now no more
There’s a baby born let us adore
Peace and Good will to man
Tell it on the mountain”

With a jubilant performance, The Kingsmen deliver a high energy song that makes the hallowed story new again, and is sure to keep the spirit of Christmas alive through the season.

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.
