This year’s K-Love Fan Awards is not being streamed or broadcast live so we can’t directly confirm yet the awards winners being announced tonight at the event venue.
NOTE: One of Danny’s managers just shared the K-LOVE’s show card announcing Danny won “Male Artist of the Year” on social media. We consider that verification! 5/29/17 a.m.
To make it entirely official, we’ve found that the winners list went up sometime today at http://www.klove.com/events/fan-awards/winners/ 🙂 5/29/17 p.m.
However — we’re hearing reports on twitter that Danny Gokey was announced this evening as the K-Love Fan Award’s 2017 Male Artist of the Year, for the second straight year! Danny also seems to have had the privilege of opening the show with his current single “The Comeback,” which must have been spectacular from his preview with a talented local cheerleading team! (see below)
Danny is also nominated in the category for 2017 Artist of the Year against some impressive competition, including last year’s winner Lauren Daigle who has reportedly been announced this evening as 2017 Female Artist of the Year.
We’ll publish updates to this post as we find additional news or confirmations.
K-Love is making this year’s awards event available in theaters for special one-time showings on June 13th. Be sure to check it out!
Update: online reports suggest Artist of the Year was won by one of the groups that was nominated this year. Check the latest from K-Love and their theater showing of the awards program to find out who!
Update 2: see some pics from Danny’s performance of “The Comeback” here via zimbio.com.

That’s awesome. Where on Twitter did you hear this? 😊😊
Kelly, no official source but there are a few tweets coming out of the event audience. We can’t confirm but they seem to be accurate
I am so happy for Danny, wish we could watch it live, maybe someday!
Congratulations, Danny!! Two years in a row! 🙂
It is good to see King and Country get the recognition, too. Glad for Danny to get the MAOTY 🙂
I “missed” it but I had fun at a festival with some friends.
I’ve added an additional link to a photo collection from last night’s event.
Very cool photos! I hope Danny didn’t miss his slam dunk 😉 I wonder how he tore off his jacket so fast in the number? I’m looking forward to seeing the whole performance.
And one of Danny’s managers posted a picture of the card with Danny announced as the MAoftheY on their facebook page, so I changed our post to include our photo 🙂
Congratulations, Danny. Well deserved. 😁😁😁😁
