  1. The CMT awards are fan-voted. I believe the ACMs are partially fan-voted, although I don’t remember how much input fans have, or who does the remaining voting. I have the impression that the ACMs have changed voting methods in recent years to allow fans less input (and presumably make the awards more prestigious). But yes, the ACAs used to be fan-voted (although I think they do some weird countdown show now)? And I don’t know anything about the AMAs, but I’ll take your word that they are fan-voted. What an alphabet soup of award shows!

  2. Oh, and I learned a thing or two from you, Admin2, and from JosieInSeattle, about being understated in my defense of Danny. Actually more effective that way than if I gushed about Danny’s awesomeness. 😉

  3. Danny appears to have been opening his concerts lately with MBDAAOM. Is he also singing Give Me Jesus in his concerts? Maybe some concerts that are for church groups?

    “13h13 hours ago
    Awesome time with @dannygokey tonight. “Give me Jesus” yes.yes.yes.”

  4. I want to hear TITTL in Spanish. I’ve said that before. I am ready for the Spanish album. It is summer. Hurry up, Danny’s team.

    (Note: “Hurry” means the same thing as “Hurry up.” The “up” isn’t necessary, but I think it makes me sound more bossy. Maybe I’ll get better results if I sound tough.)

  5. Lurker, you made me think…in America, adding “up” seems to imply completion. Other examples: finish up, closed up, shut up…. We don’t just want Danny to hurry, we want him to get the album released!!

  6. “Maybe this is why Danny and Mitch went to LA? ”

    I had wondered if the photo shoot was for the cover of the Spanish album. Maybe covers for both the Spanish album and the new album also?

    How long away might a tour be for other countries where the Spanish album is released? A year? Sooner? Later? Never?

  7. Oh oops Ellen. I think I meant the CMAs, not the CMTs. yes, way too many acronyms 🙂

  8. from a FB comment re the concert Danny did recently at a baseball park – aww about the 600 kids

    There were over 4,000 people in attendance including over 600 special needs kids who were invited guests. Everyone did a great job! #GreatClients #BeTheOne

  9. Maybe this is why Danny and Mitch went to LA? To meet with this promoter of the Spanish album??

    Just a theory….. but a nice one:)

    oh hey, that was one of my theorys from the photo shoot trip. and did Mitch later say something about how they were hitting the pavement and not the beach? which sounded to me as if they were making the rounds for some business meetings.

    so yeah, hmm, maybe

    eta: bah. “theories”

  10. Album rebound. It’s been in the 20’s and 30’s the times I’ve checked recently.


    TYHTBA: #9
    HIFOM: #13 (album)

    Video: #19 (TYHTBA)

  11. Well, Danny and Mitch aren’t following Criteria Entertainment…. if they were, I’d call it a slam dunk 😉

    But Danny will be a big part of his team understanding the promotion in South America and Mexico, right? I don’t know if Mitch speaks much Spanish? I know Penny doesn’t…. Half the tweets CE sends out are in Spanish.

    Off topic, Danny started following Gloria Gaynor. Maybe they can sing disco together? Naw, she’s putting out a Gospel album this fall?

    Lurker, it sounds like that nice crowd in Idaho might have helped a little bit?

  12. New single to be released in August per Danny. He answered my tweeted question 🙂

    Makes sense since he says he will preview a song or two on the Positive Hits Tour.

  13. “He answered my tweeted question:)”

    🙂 (Jan gets the scoop!)

  14. At least we won’t have to wait a year between singles this time 🙂

    Hopefully Danny will continue to build momentum in this genre and a new single will be every 6 to 8 months, instead!

    Happy Holiday weekend to all US visitors. And a nice weekend to all!

  15. Jan,
    Someone posted a comment in MJ’s headlines with Danny’s reply and your tweet (about the new single).

  16. ” 8m8 minutes ago
    More from a great night with Danny Gokey Wednesday… 🙂

  17. Danny was just going to sing, “It’s Not Over” in the video. 🙁

    Thank you for all the information everyone. Congrats, Jan. 🙂

  18. So…. close, Cindy. I wanted to hear it, too….

    I am looking forward to the DG music!! I expect he will start giving us a sneak peak in a couple of weeks? I wonder how many songs are done on the album. Maybe I will ask 😉

  19. I don’t know if I mentioned that Danny now has 15 new songs registered at BMI. Plus I listened to a Natalie Grant podcast interview because they teased Danny’s name….

    Turns out Bernie Herms (Natalie’s husband) gave Danny one of the Bernie’s songs she wanted — But he gave it to Danny for the new album. Not much revealed. I was hoping for name of a song…. I’m assuming they pitched this song idea and then Danny, Bernie and ?? tailor it for Danny’s use? Or maybe it is a 100% Bernie and we won’t see any sign of it until the album tracks are announced.

    Here’s the five newest songs added:

    11) LOVE WITHOUT MEASURE BMI Work # 22187360
    GOKEY DANNY BMI 600623891
    SHEETS LUKE H W SESAC 350614685

    12) SLOW DOWN BMI Work # 22148680
    GOKEY DANIEL JAY BMI 600623793
    HERMS BERNIE BMI 193327559

    13) CHASING BMI Work # 22147667
    GOKEY DANIEL JAY BMI 600623793
    HERMS BERNIE BMI 193327559

    14) COLORS BMI Work # 22147901
    GOKEY DANIEL JAY BMI 600623793

    15) I LL NEVER BE THE SAME BMI Work # 22034305
    GOKEY DANIEL JAY BMI 600623793

    I just noticed that on the last four songs they switched to Danny’s full name and other #. Fortunately, when I did a search, it recognizes him as the same person. Wheww!

    I see that Colby was the writer/producer/mixer for the Jordan Feliz’ song “The River” and has also worked with the Newsboys, others.

  20. Do you think Danny will ever go back to Daniel? I thought others called him Dan, but it was on American Idol that Danny came about, right?

  21. “2h2 hours ago  Atlanta, GA


  22. Hi Cindy, I think a question was asked about his going from Daniel or Dan to Danny and he said that after Sophia died, he didn’t feel the same and he decided to use the name Danny. At least that is what I recall.

    I have heard his family call him Dan, but otherwise it is Danny. I do know some fans persist in calling him Dan or Daniel, but I’ve always felt that was too…. but it seems Danny rolls with it.

  23. Love the song, and the way Danny sings it. Lee Greenwood would be proud.

    Ha-ha, Jan. I was thinking the same thing. 🙂

  24. Hi. If you might be wondering if there will be a new post by early tomorrow morning…. I’m thinking no.

    With the holiday, I will put up a new discussion post, but I’m likely to wait until Monday night or early Tuesday for it to published. We’ll see what I decide tomorrow.

    I have some really nice pictures to use, but I don’t want to cover up the “God Bless the USA” post too soon. I might time it for after the fireworks tomorrow night.

    Or not. 😉

    I hope everybody is having a good holiday weekend. Ours has been very nice, so far. Ed and I went on a scenic drive/dinner/drinks/ferry ride with some friends, a friend over last night, and today to a local celebration plus saw our grand daughter (and her parents…) 🙂 Nothing planned for tomorrow. But then most of this wasn’t too planned, either…

  25. Changed my mind already….

    I’ll have a new post, but I’d like your help “voting” on what photo I should use on Facebook Monday night or Tuesday morning. Just because I publish a new post, doesn’t mean I have to post it on Facebook right away… duh.
