  1. @dannygokeynewz: #TellYourHeartToBeatAgain by @dannygokey climbs to #2 on the @AllAccess CAC chart as it makes a move to be his 2nd #1 on Mediabase Charts!

  2. Well, that screenshot that Mitchell Solarek Instagrammed must have been from this week’s chart action since Danny did not get a #1 on the just published Billboard Christian AC Chart….. TYHTBA is only 99 spins away from Lauren on the Christian National Airplay. But many of the songs lost spins. Not sure what that was about:

  3. Also, I see some new song credits listed for Danny on his BMI account. A couple are intriguing. Written with well known country songwriters (such as Kyle Jacobs– Kelly Pickler’s husband and a very successful writer.)

    Do you think these are Christian tunes?




  4. Wondering…
    Do you think Danny’s team is trying to wait to see if TYHTBA goes to #1 before releasing the Spanish version? Would the release of the Spanish version have any impact on the chart position of the current single? Help it or hurt it? Would the current single lose attention that would turn to the Spanish single? Would the two be on the same station? The same chart?
    Could the second one help the first one? Maybe a station might play the first one and then follow that up by playing the new one?

    I saw you had commented to someone that both the Spanish/English and the Spanish singles would go to iTunes. Interesting.


  5. “Do you think these are Christian tunes?”


    But could also be something else.

    I have no idea.


  6. I saw this comment (about an hour ago) in headlines at MJ’s. I hadn’t bothered to look there earlier, so I found out about the songs through you. I had also seen the EP cover on iTunes, but I didn’t realize it was an EP cover or that it included the Spanish versions. I kept waiting for Danny to tweet about it. If you had not tweeted, I guess I would still be waiting to get the news. Thank you! 🙂

  7. Danny needs to tweet about the new EP (with the Spanish songs). People have been waiting to hear from him. Why keep the news a secret?

    Maybe he hasn’t been told the EP is on iTunes yet?


  8. He posted about it on his Facebook page but he hadn’t tweeted about it. Plus we had a link to the song in our post 😉


  9. The EP has hit iTunes with no publicity at all. I think it might start moving when people discover it is there. Having the cover on it of an already familiar picture and having the same title as the single makes it blend. I didn’t know when I saw it that it was a new release.

    Maybe Danny will tweet about it when he is done with his concert activities tonight.


  10. I don’t read Facebook. (There might be others like me who have no interest in it. Or maybe I’m the only one?)

    I did see your tweet. That’s how I found out. I wish I could see a lot more tweets though. When I see twitter activity, I usually see a climb on iTunes.


  11. AND we have the acoustic video. I wondered if it was coming out…. I did check last night– I expected to see it when I came home from the Sophia’s Heart event in Milwaukee I attended– but it wasn’t on iTunes then. Must of loaded this morning (When I was at work!!)


    BTW, I heard of a few new events coming up for SHF. One of them includes a proposed Harley Davidson Motorcycle ride from Milwaukee to Nashville — with a concert at the end of the event. Daughtry possibly the headliner to Danny opening? I’ll keep an eye out for a Daughtry confirmation. Nothing available, yet.


  12. Lurker, the EP moved up to #57 and the REGULAR version of TYHTBA from the EP appears to be #45, and original #4…..

    PS Added a correction 😉

  13. I’m glad to see the EP climb. I thought it might after I saw you had tweeted the Spanish video. 🙂 (That’s why I brought the numbers then.)

    “EP version of TYHTBA”

    There are five EP versions of TYHTBA. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 The entire EP is TYHTBA. Three in English (one original, one remix, one accompanied), one Spanish, one Spanish/English.

    I wonder if anyone else has ever done five versions of the same song on one EP.

  15. In reply to Jan.
    Danny looks in good shape for that possible MB #1. He has the only song in the top 5 with a bullet, and has jumped over the former #2 song. Nothing racing fast up the charts behind him if he can move past Lauren D

  16. Yes, Jan. Most Unusual.

    “A Most Unusual occurrence…
    And it includes a compliment”

    The compliment is below.
    “There’s no denying that boy can sing.”


  17. iTunes:

    TYHTBA: # 4 (single from album)

    HIFOM: #11 (album)

    QTCVAL: 135 (Spanish single from EP)

    TYHTBA: 34 (EP)


  18. I’ll say it here, since I can’t say it there . . .

    Just read a certain blog post by one of our *ahem* favorite AI bloggers, and you could have knocked me over with a feather when a read a positive but professional blog post of Danny’s Spanish-language EP. I double-checked the byline in case it had been ghost-written by one of our trust admins. But no . . .

  19. Ellen, I think ALL of us are a bit shocked…… “there’s no denying that boy can sing”… 😉


  20. I’ve been keeping an eye out for the final round of K-LOVE Award Nominees. Final Voting starts May 10th. I’d think they’d announce the finalists…. on Monday?? Hopefully Danny’s TYHTBA makes the finals. Just as it heads to #1? It would be great timing…..

    I also noticed that they dropped the number of spins for TYHTBA and Lauren’s TIY. Maybe they will increase them again if they are finalists?

  21. It looks like my hunch could be come true….

    Both Lauren’s and Danny’s songs have had increases in spins at Klove. Lauren’s increased by 9 spins this week. Danny’s 3. Both in the 40’s. Danny could use another increase of 10 spins by K-Love.

    TYHTBA has a nice spincrease of 95 today and is the only song in the top area with a positive spincrease. Hopefully it can change places wirh Lauren’s TIY in the next week or two 🙂


  22. Jan, I noticed at least three posts where I expected snark, and got professionalism instead. Maybe it’s occurred to someone that with AI over, there won’t be more finalists to post about, and the best way to retain and grow readership is to be more neutral and professional about all of the blog subjects.

    * I posted on the thread because sometimes that may help to encourage good behavior.


  23. Always good to have positive change 🙂

    Happy Mother’s Day to all celebrating!! A beautiful day here in Wisconsin.


  24. iTunes:

    TYHTBA: # 4 (single from album)

    HIFOM: #14 (album)

    Video: #1 (back up from #158)


    QTCVAL: did not see listed (Spanish single from EP)

    TYHTBA: 60 (EP)

  25. Lurker, I guess this just goes to show what a difference promotion and radio play for single sales! I would expect to see more for QTCVAL.
