  1. Hi all! Good news on the radio front for #TellYourHeartToBeatAgain! It hits its highest position on Allaccess Mediabase CAC at #6. It just passed Chris Tomlin.

  2. You will be seeing more of Annette Holloway’s photography in upcoming posts…. I just <3 the one of Danny performing in front of that huge arena crowd! Definitely expect to see it again….

    I am so appreciative of the people that share their photos, stories and Danny news with us here. (Looking at you, Lurker!) The photographers have been extremely generous to us!

  3. Danny didn’t make the Billboard Award nominations this year. Hopefully “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” will become the HUGE hit we think is possible. (HIFOM was a big hit for Danny, I don’t want to jinx him, but I think this one could be bigger.) Lauren’s song “Trust in You” is #1 at Mediabase and on the big Christian chart at Billboard.

  4. Thank you Jan for fixing my mistake. 🙂

    The photos are beautiful!

    I’m sorry Danny didn’t get a Billboard Award Nomination this year, but there is always next year, and all the years after. I think Danny’s career will be very successful. ♪♫♫♪

  5. iTunes:

    TYHTBA: # 2

    HIFOM: #6 (album)

    Video: #2

    (Blake’s single is up to #4.)

  6. Today is the last day of Danny’s special promotion for the album on iTunes according to a tweet he sent a few minutes ago. Will the chart placement bump up high tonight, I wonder?

  7. It is already showing $9.99 on iTunes. Album still at #5. Danny’s single remains at #2. (Blake’s has moved to #3.)

  8. iTunes:

    TYHTBA: # 2

    HIFOM: #5 (album)

    Video: #2

    Single: 128
    Album: 128

    Blake’s single is at #3 and #141. I want Danny to stay ahead. (Big country stars often release Christian music. I’ve kind of been expecting Carrie to throw out something again. I wasn’t thinking about Blake doing it, but I am not surprised at all.)

  9. It’s ok, Lurker <3

    Is Blake's single getting radio play? BTW, what is it called?

  10. The only thing I know about radio play is what I see in your posts. I don’t listen to radio anymore. (Don’t have a TV either. I lost interest.)

    The name of Blake’s single is Savior’s Shadow.

  11. I don’t see it on the country or Christian charts. So, it may go up, but without radio play, it may not stay up there.

    The last monitored station to add Danny’s TYHTBA DID today: KSBJ– Houston. They are still playing HIFOM 20+ times a week. Not sure if they ever played MTYTIA. They’ve played it 11 times so far. Big station. Getting their spins will help the AI for D’s song.

  12. Thank you, Lurker. I went on Google and found Blake S. new song Savior’s Shadow. I like Blake Shelton’s voice. I haven’t heard many of his songs. I use to listen to country, but not much anymore. This is just my opinion.. I didn’t listen to all of the song because I wasn’t sure I liked it. It doesn’t pull you in like Danny Gokey’s Hope In Front of Me, or Tell Your Heart to Beat Again. It is probably Blake Shelton’s name, but I’m not sure his song will stay on the charts as long as Danny’s. Then again, I could be wrong. 😉

  13. Hi all. Checking in with sketchy Internet from my vacation!

    TYHTBA just made atop 5 on mediabase.

    See you later!!

  14. Very quite here, today. Loved watching the full video of Danny and the Heartbeats. 🙂

  15. Glad you enjoyEd the video, Cindy. I thought it was fun, too!!

    @dannygokeynewz: And now it is #4!!!
    #TellYourHeartToBeatAgain by @DannyGokey moves AGAIN on the @AllAccess CAC chart! #GoDannyGo

  16. I’ll put up a post if I can tomorrow, but some Billboard news

    #3 Ntl Christian Audience National Airplay – up from 34
    #6 Christian AC Ntl Airplay – up from #7
    4th week #1 at Christian AC Indicator chart
    #19 on Soft AC Ntl Airplay CCM chart – steady from last week
    #16 – Christian Hot AC/CHR Ntl Airplay – up from 318

  17. “#3 Ntl Christian Audience National Airplay – up from 34
    #16 – Christian Hot AC/CHR Ntl Airplay – up from 318”

    Wow! Some big moves. 🙂

  18. Were they not big moves then?

    On iTunes, Danny has big moves with his video, both huge drops and huge rises. His video might be at #4, then down to #168. Or at #132, then up to #5.

  19. A radio personality is teasing a conversation with Danny Monday in which he’ll reveal why Leyicet doesn’t like one of his songs. Can we guess which one?

    Mediabase to #4 – and over 10M audience impression which is a great milestone.

  20. “Can we guess which one?”

    I have no idea. There are some I like less than others, but Leyicet probably does like those. ❓

  21. I was going to say “Take it to the Limit.”

    I really have no idea. I like all of them.

  22. “Take it to the Limit” is one of my favorites. I don’t like “Pretty Beautiful” or “Better Than Gold” on the album. (Sometimes Danny continues improving a song, and I end up liking a concert version better than what I originally heard on an album.)

    Leyicet probably likes the ones I don’t and maybe doesn’t like the ones I do. Danny too, perhaps. I don’t think he particularly liked “The Coach” (since he didn’t sing it in concert), but I loved it.

  23. iTunes:

    TYHTBA: # 3

    HIFOM: #11 (album)

    Video: #11

    (Video went back up again.)

  24. I like “Take it to the Limit.” I was trying to figure out what Leyicet wouldn’t like. Wasn’t “Pretty Beautiful” about Leyicet, or was it “Better Than Gold?” I really have no idea. 😕

  25. I don’t like Better Than Gold as much as some others as the lyrics are very repetitive. But if you can remember the title, you’re a long way to knowing the whole song 😉

  26. From a twitter update, the interview airs tonight at 8 PM PST, 11 EST

    And according to the little clip on this, the song that Leyicet doesn’t love is one that Danny “wrote for his wife” – I’m thinking BTG?


    I may not make it to hear the program over the air but they appear to post podcasts so we can check later in the week I guess

  27. It seems like the song Leyicet doesn’t like would be either “Better Than Gold” or “Pretty Beautiful”, but it could be “Take it To the Limit”. Of those three, I like “Pretty Beautiful” the best, but who knows, maybe she doesn’t. I hope to catch the show interview to find out!

  28. Was Pretty Beautiful the song that was written by some Nashville folks and recorded by a country artist?

  29. aha yes. I don’t know why I always think of a question and post it. And then look it up later which only takes a second 😳

  30. “Pretty Beautiful” is the only song on Danny’s CD that I don’t really like. I’m gonna guess that maybe that’s the song that Leyicet doesn’t like, either. But who knows?

  31. Thanks, Lurker. I thought it may be one or the other. I like it.

    Thanks to all for keeping us updated.

  32. Well, as long as Danny still sings “Better Than Gold” in concert, I’m not worried that Leyicet doesn’t like it.

  33. iTunes:

    TYHTBA: # 2

    HIFOM: #9 (album)

    Video: #3

    Video is back up. I think it quirky how far up and down it goes.

  34. Billboard update – closing in on #1 song

    National Christian Audience National Airplay – #2 nice!
    National Christian Audience Indicator – 5th week #1
    Christian AC National Airplay,#4 up from #7
    Christian Hot AC/CHR – #12, up from #16
    Christian Soft AC – #18 up from #19

  35. Good morning! I’m back from my trip to England! I see that ADMIN2 has been filling in very nicely for me and that we have hit 1,000 followers on Facebook!!!

    I made it across the “big pond” without suffering too bad from jet lag. Stayed up all night/day the first day. And went to bed after 23 hours on the way home. Here’s a link to one of my photo albums if anyone wants to see a bit of our trip to the Cotswolds. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1074677872555124.1073741924.100000387648758&type=1&l=e5050b5ea8

    Great trip but so glad to be home, too! I don’t think I’ve ever been gone 10 days without seeing someone in my family! Family is the best gift of all!!

    I will be adding Danny’s concert for the 30th on our calendar. Not sure if I’ll do a post on it or just add it?

    TYHTBA is doing very nicely on the Allaccess CAC chart. The Way FM Network (that Danny did the interview for) is spinning it over 60 times a week! It’s only 140 spins behind Lauren’s #1 song.

    I thought it interesting in WAY FM piece that Danny said he is getting many radio requests for interviews, etc. There is a price for success. I also saw that he was in a Skype session with 88.7 The Bridge in Delaware for their upcoming fundraiser.

    So appreciated @dannygokey skyping us before we started fundraiser!! Awesome prayers my friend!!! #HOPE

  37. Beautiful photos, Jan! I’ve always wanted go to England. So happy for you.

    I didn’t follow Prince, but I respected his music. To young to die. ♥

    On count down for my first grandchild.

  38. Danny appears to be doing a private appearance this evening?

    @dannygokey live right now at @TXCongreso

    Before I saw the tweet about Texas, I looked up Congreso’s this week and I found Sixth International Banana Congress in Miami.

    But the truth I guess is a little less lively, and less yellow 😛

    TXCongreso is ‘Texas Congreso, a 3-Day Conference for Youth, College Students, Singles, & Youth Workers’

    Here is a Periscope – https://www.periscope.tv/SammyLopez/1vOxwDBokWVKB

  39. We did know that Danny was going to be at Baylor University at Waco Texas, today. But I wasn’t able to track down precisely what he was doing. 🙂

    Looks like a pretty big crowd at his performance. Thanks for finding the Periscope, ADMIN2.

  40. I am not a patient person (except when I am). I am impatient now for the Spanish single (or album). The release of either would be fun.

    My view of the Spanish songs is that I don’t have to like all the lyrics. I can just like the sound.

  41. Lurker, we were told the Spanish single will come out at the end of the month. If it isn’t available on April 29th I will join you in being impatient. 😉

  42. Hillary Scott of Lady A is releasing a faith-inspired album with her family. Do I see a familiar face in this? (not Danny but related)

    If I’m remembering correctly, Hillary was part of the same gospel series show debut that was hosted at the Ryman in Nashville where Danny appeared a year or more ago with Steven Curtis Chapman? I haven’t heard if that program is still running or not…

  43. HIFOM: album on Amazon

    #1 in Music > Gospel
    #3 in Music > Christian > Pop & Contemporary
    #133 in Music > Pop

  44. Today is also my sister’s birthday (as well as Danny’s and Kelly Clarkson’s).

  45. Happy birthday to your sister, Ellen!

    I had to look it up, but Kelly was only 19 when she competed on Idol. So she’s only 34 to Danny’s 36.
