  1. The video (real estate side job) is almost like a commercial, but it is being picked up by many news sites.


  2. Yes, and I figured any AP videos about Danny we should share. So I put up a post and shared the link on Facebook 🙂

    I saw it on YouTube before the tweets. I had been thinking about a Throwback Thursday video to share and I didn’t like where it was going when I saw it…. (my idea wasn’t panning out….)


  3. Random comments:

    I liked the Rise single cover better than the RISE album cover.

    When comments go from 1st page to 2nd page, I forget to look again at the 1st.


  4. Lurker, I don’t remember what the Rise single cover looks like. I like the album cover. A lot.

    When I get a chance I will add this event to our site and the calendar.

    Danny appearing on the July 6th. Hillsboro Ohio Festival of the Bells. The next two nights they have country headliners. Last year, Building 429, Jana Kramer and Phil Vassar. Was Phil originally on a talent show? (Not AAmerican Idol.)



  5. There is the picture, Jan.

    Your article was interesting. Based on history for that event, Danny will be very expensive. Sooon. 🙂


  6. I have a feeling it must have been more than a “few” years ago when they got Brad Paisley to perform for $11000. Unless they were dog years.

  7. Danny’s very handsome in the photo, Lurker. I really do love the CD cover. Danny looks so “cool” in his suit. Love the colors, too. And, with the title of his album, I think where the photo was taken might have some relevance.

    Have a wonderful day!

  8. Wow, I thought that was a poorly written article. It doesn’t make you want to read the article, much less attend any of the shows. And I think it’s “has” not “has had,” although with all the different charts, I could be wrong. Is Danny still #1 on the Christian Airplay chart?


  9. Ellen, I liked it for their thinking they are the best ones to select rising stars 🙂

    I hate my own mistakes, but I try to glide over those of others.

    I haven’t seen the Billboard CAC or CAC Indicator charts, yet. But rise is still #1 on Mediabase CAC. #3 on Billboard Christian Airplay.


  10. MJ included Danny’s real estate side job video in today’s headlines. No article–just the video. But that’s good. Great advertising (the B&B isn’t named, but people see it exists) for both the real estate, the music, and for Danny as a success. The last, I think is also good.


  11. *all three: (not both), or “both” omitted

    I wrote “both” above but listed three things instead of two. Everyone could probably have understood it anyway. 😉

    Sometimes I correct to add to the comment total. 😀


  12. From a tour review;

    “Following Unspoken, Gokey immediately took to the stage and captivated the audience’s attention all at once. Gokey’s vocals were impressive and passionate, his music inviting, and his lyrics relatable and worshipful.”

  13. Lurker, I should have remembered the single cover, but I had forgotten it.

    I like the CD cover a lot more. Danny has nice eyes in the single cover, but I am not a fan of the cut off the top of the head style of the photo.


  14. Weird. I don’t like people to have their heads cut off either, but I had never noticed that about the single cover until I looked again after I read your comment.

    I like the CD cover also, but I have a vision problem. I liked the single cover photo better because I can see it better.


  15. Anyone heading to Ohio for a small town festival? This one looks like a lot of fun. I’d love to watch the shopping cart race, danny, and the new (up and coming) country singers– always a good time.


    Clearly the festival season fills a lot of dates for country and Christian artists. I never knew how many Christian festivals there were until Danny switched genres. I remember thinking when he left country that I wouldn’t get to see him at county fairs anymore.

    I don’t think that anymore…..

    PS. I practiced my Publisher skills to make that “Bells” poster 😉

  16. From MJ’s:

    Danny’s cover is featured again.
    ““Rise”, by Idol Season 8’s Danny Gokey, ascends to the top of the Christian AC Songs chart. It continues to top the Christian AC Indicator chart for a 7th week.”


  17. What day are new singles released? Will there be an announcement before?

    I don’t know the expected pattern or even if there is an expected pattern. Maybe the team looks to see where and what other artists are doing to try to choose a path with the least traffic?


  18. No sign of a new single release date yet….

    The last one made no sense to me. It was released on a Thursday. They use to release on Mondays. But generally now on Fridays because of the sale week starts on a Friday.

    However, with a second single from an existing album, I doubt the release week will generate much sale increases….

    Danny was SLOW in releasing singles from HIFOM. I hope he steps it up for the singles from RISE

    RISE– August 2016

    TYHTBA — December 2015
    (LUYE & MDYK October 2015 Christmas is Here)
    MTYTIA — November 2014
    HIFOM — December 2013


  19. “I doubt the release week will generate much sale increases….”

    Maybe it would at least generate a few comments here. It’s more fun to read when something is going on.

    Thanks for your quick reply. 🙂

  20. We are having a little bit of a lull. Danny is in the middle of a long tour. He has the same song set and not a bunch of other news — if you don’t count the getting another #1…

    I saw another solo concert announced for April 26th in Trinity AL. Hopefully I can get it posted this weekend.

    More concerts will roll out soon. I’m expecting a BIG announcement at the end of March.

    I’ve let my part time job get a bit too demanding… and I will be heading out on an adventure soon. So I’m a bit overwhelmed.


  21. ” if you don’t count the getting another #1…”

    I count the #1. I like the yawning man (woman? cat?)…


  22. Awww… Lurker my BIG is smaller than yur big…..

    And Ellen, I am happy to learn new things. When I want to 😉

    I get a newsletter from GMA and it has some numbers:

    *Chart is courtesy of CMTA and Nielson Christian Soundscan



    ARIOUS ARTISTS 9,965 10,012

    VARIOUS ARTISTS 3,789 145,430

    LAUREN DAIGLE 3,316 567,253

    CASTING CROWNS 3,120 131,904

    DANNY GOKEY 2,313 24,226

    CROWDER 2,285 66,926

    ZACK WILLIAMS 2,204 16,503

    CASTING CROWNS 1,904 132,176

    CHRIS TOMLIN 1,774 561,515

    NEWSBOYS 1,610 98,638

    Th see numbers are for individual albums. Danny’s is RiSE. I wish HIFOM had made the top 10 so I would have new sales figures for it, too.


  23. What does this mean?

    ” 2m2 minutes ago
    @dannygokey Have someone fix your slide! It’s ILLUMINATE. 😳”


  24. If they are at a concert, would guess they think they see an error in the lyrics or message on Danny’s stage production video?


  25. ” I’m expecting a BIG announcement at the end of March.”

    About a tour? Europe? Spanish Album?

    You may have to think in terms of what represents “BIG” in Jan’s view of the world 😉


  26. Thank you, Admin2. I thought “slide” had something to do with Danny’s dancing and that “ILLUMINATE” was used in a slang way I didn’t get. Your explanation makes sense.

    I have no idea what the “BIG” news will be. I will have to be patient and find out when I find out. :waiting:

    (I decided to make my own smiley for “waiting.” No picture expected. Imagination is to be used.)


  27. Admin2 is 100% correct that for ME its big news. But for many others it might be a “that’s nice”. Sorry for using the BIG word. At least I didn’t say it was HUGE.

    In Danny’s song, “Stronger Than We Think”, there’s a lyric, “‘Cause we illuminate the night”. The slide maker must have left out an “l” or somehow misspelled it?


  28. And I can’t believe that Daylight Savings Time is just around the corner! I’m just enjoying waking up to daylight. Now it’s gonna get dark again in the morning, so it stays lighter in the evening?


  29. Well, March is steadily marching on toward tax day in April, so your big news at the end of the month likely will be here before you know it, Jan!


  30. Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

    Every time I see a little snippet of Danny performing, he sounds great! I’m sure he’s gaining many more fans, and a little more fame along the way. 🙂

    Danny’s calendar seems pretty full. Maybe some down time before his Hawaii trip. I’m not sure of Leyicet’s due date. Hope he has some time to enjoy his new little baby. I wonder if family would go to Hawaii. Maybe not.


  31. Hi Cindy, Ellen, Admin and Lurker.

    Busy few days for me.

    My part time job has been quite demanding… Plus I took a “Women in Tech” Word Press class today. Really interesting (sick, eh?). I picked up a few tricks I hadn’t figured out myself. And then juggled a bunch of travel plans/flights for an incoming storm’s impact on a planned trip. Then hubby and I reinstalled the toilet in our master bathroom when a little leak developed from the tank. Yes, he likes me to be involved in those projects.

    I may be a bit scarce in the near future.

    I do plan on putting up a new post on Sunday, not Monday. It’s already done and ready to go.


  32. ” 49m49 minutes ago
    Got to go to a Casting Crowns concert last night, and it was phenomenal. Danny Gokey also opened and he is definitely a new favorite. 😊”
