  1. Buy Me A Boat’s inexpensive video has over 54 million views on YT! Goodness

    Though Chris Janson waited a long time to have a breakthrough as a performer.

  2. Gee, and I remember the days when I couldn’t stand twang. I’ve come a long way, because I love the beginning of that song: “I ain’t rich, but I d*mn sure wanna be. Working like a dog all day ain’t working for me. I wish I had a rich uncle that’d kick the bucket, and I was sittin’ on a pile like Warren Buffet . . . ”

    So inquiring minds want to know . . . Did Chris Janson ever buy himself a boat?

  3. TC is #34 today. It should get at least two monitored stations adding it.

  4. As he should be ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Mediabase takes its sweet time on CAC. But I guess that is better than the old Second Hand Heart days in country music… they would add bit not play it… :/

  5. Good Morning..

    I was wondering. I just sent off an email to my daughter and friend to ask if they would vote for Danny for the K-LOVE Fan Awards. I also asked if they would pass the message along to “two” other people. Like
    a chain letter. Even though, I don’t like chain letters. :/ I thought it might be a good way to generate more votes for Danny… What do you think??

    OMG @dannygokey you sang #ThatsWhatLoveCanDo last night! That’s my favorite song! I hope to hear it Fri. Thx 4 sharing it on insta @leyicet”

    Can this video be posted here?

  7. I’m trying out a new header. Let me know what you think…. when you see it ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Lurker, it is an instagram story posted by Leyicet. I could possibly copy it…. but they are suppose to disappear, unless the owner decides to save them. So, I won’t do that– unless Leyicet saves it.

    If it is any comfort, the sound quality really wasn’t good. It took me a little bit to recognize the song and I knew which one it was…

  9. Thanks, Jan. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I thought I saw a new header–somewhere. When I looked again, I didn’t find it. Not sure if I saw what I thought I saw. I liked it though.

  10. Well, the red one wasn’t wide enough… but the blue fits…. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Look at Mallary go!

  13. aww – hope Mallary’s single does well. She should have label support, I think her husband is involved with the company somehow …

  14. I love Mallary Hope! She’s so talented. I remember when she had been in a studio or something and heard Danny sing “I Will Not Say Goodbye,” and then she made a comment about Danny working on this very powerful song that moved her. Something like that. I have her song “Love Lives On.” Talk about a tearjerker!

  15. I don’t know Ryan Stevenson, but I’m very interested in what Hollyn does. I find her a breath of fresh air — doing Christian music but with a very modern twist.

    Stupid question — is Mallary doing Christian or country? She’s listed with other Christian artists, but I associate Curb Records with country music.

  16. Oh, and can someone remind me of the K-Love rules? I know about separate family members/email addresses, but is it once a day voting or what? I don’t remember, even though I’ve done it before. ๐Ÿ™

  17. I believe Natalie Grant is on Curb Records. So they must have a Christian branch. I remember in the Summer of 2012 Danny told me he was excited about meetings with Curb. But then we learned he wasn’t considered Christian music ready ….or something like that.. from Christian labels.

    Maybe they have broadened their views since Danny has become successful on a non-Christian label like BMG?

  18. I thought Mallory co-wrote “Win Me Over” for Danny. I searched and found this comment:

    “I’ve seen Mallary live a couple of times, and own her EP which has some good songs on it IMO. She is also a co-writer of Danny Gokey’s song Win Me Over that was an excellent country ballad for Danny’s second album but unfortunately the rights got caught up in the shuffle with his departure from RCA Nashville.”

    The comment was part of a post written by someone who writes here. It was made at MJ’s 5 years ago.

  19. Yes, I have a fondness of Mallary because of “Win Me Over”. Love Danny’s voice on that song. I do own a copy. I have my ways ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’d love to see Danny & Mallary write together.

    I will have to put it on my list of things to ask Danny: if we could share it (only) at DGNews?

  20. I believe Mallary is signed to Curb as a primarily Christian artist, though likely not ruling out that she could cross over. As a songwriter, I haven’t heard much recently but would think like a lot of them she’d have no trouble supporting both audiences.

    I remember when she had been in a studio or something and heard Danny sing โ€œI Will Not Say Goodbye,โ€ and then she made a comment about Danny working on this very powerful song that moved her

    I can’t recall the name off-hand but I think this was a different female artist who was in the Christian genre at the time. She heard IWNSG when Danny was recording it in Mark Bright’s studio. Something like that. I have seen her name in recent months on the charts, she continues to be active on Christian radio.

  21. Just came back to me. Meredith Andrews was the one who made the early comment about IWNSG. Mallary also has an early reference with Danny, they were both on the line-up of a country music Christian show the fall that Danny had his first single out with RCA. And did at least one or two joint concerts after that, I remember seeing them both on a line-up headlined by Jake Owens one time.


  22. Yes, I have a fondness of Mallary because of โ€œWin Me Overโ€. Love Dannyโ€™s voice on that song. I do own a copy. I have my ways ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I also have audio of Win Me Over. It has this very distinctive voiceover comment early on with someone in the audience going “mmmmmmm.”

    I can’t possibly think who that may have been

  23. Some things just stick in my memory though they take a while for the details to come out of deep storage.

    Mortifying this morning it took me several minutes to come up with the name of a person who was sitting in my office with me for two years until last spring. Yikes.

  24. Good to see Danny is still promoting his eyewear line for Match Eyewear ๐Ÿ™‚ I wondered why he had gotten new glasses while on the road last week (or the week before?) Probably wanted to have the most current styles on his face when he went to this conference in Nashville.


  25. Silly question. Is Danny’s eye wear available everywhere?

    Can you believe our temperatures have been in the 20’s, and snow is on the way… :/

  26. Noooo on the snow, Cindy. You don’t have to send that weather our way ๐Ÿ˜‰

    We are averaging near 60 most of our days. Pretty typical WI weather for spring. Hoping we don’t get a frost. My lilacs and flowering crab trees are ALMOST at peak.

    Cindy, while the DG Eyewear line isn’t eveywhere, its in a lot of places. Even the little town near us.

    They have a store finder here –> http://match00.com/index.php/store_locator/

    I already put up the new discussion post. It was too dead here, so I thought I’d move us over. https://dannygokeynews.com/2017/05/07/welcome-danny-gokey-news-discussion-508-52117/comment-page-1/#comment-7512
