  1. I meant to add that this is a good reason to keep photos of yourself off the Internet and not to tag people in photos (or at least keep your security settings tight).

  2. “I’m Not Gonna Miss You” and the video for it are so sad and poignant. One literally cannot miss something one cannot remember, but I wonder if deep down, there isn’t a yearning or feeling of something missing, on some level.

  3. Indiana State Fair‏Verified account @IndyStateFair 46m46 minutes ago
    Contemporary Christian Music Fest headlined by @dannygokey with Echoboy, Building Nations & Jester on August 13 (4/6) #IndyStateFair


  4. The state fair here has had Christian artists in the past. They just tend to perform on weekdays rather than weekends.


  5. I would think that Danny would make an excellent State Fair artist on a Christian music night. I will hopefully get to see how/if he modifies his act when he plays at Summerfest later this summer 🙂


  6. I think this popularity chart of singles is interesting. (The chart is found at itunes when a search of Danny’s name is done there.)
    The itunes page shows bars after the name of each single. Bars are shaded to show popularity (based on sales, I assume).
    I was surprised to see “The Comeback” was already more popular Than “Rise.”
    In order of most bars shaded:
    * TYHTBA: 12
    * HIFOM: 10
    * MBDAAOM: 6
    * “The Comeback” and MTYTIA: 5 (tie)
    * IWNSG: 4
    * Rise: 3

    All the rest: 2, 1, or no bars shaded.


  7. Another hit. 🙂 I’ve always thought “I Will Never Say Goodbye” never got the accolades it should of. It’s the one song of Danny’s that I cry every time I hear it. A very beautiful song.

  8. Definitely need a DG / Mallary tour, I think


    Which artists are you currently drawing musical inspiration from?
    I’m obsessed with Tauren Wells. His voice is just unreal. I love hearing him sing and just how effortlessly he makes it seem. I would love to sing some day with Natalie Grant and my buddy Danny Gokey. I wrote a song on my album with my friend Matthew West and I can’t wait for you guys to hear it. He’s just the best! We got to see Britt Nicole perform at the award show and I was blown away at how she can sing and dance like that. I’m not gonna lie, I’m probably the worst dancer ever so we never have to worry about me trying to sing and dance at the same time. If you ever watched the TV show Seinfeld, I’m basically like Elaine Benes hahaha.

    I are right. Will not say goodbye is amazing it makes me cry every time too. In the video Danny looks so sad u just want to hug him.


  10. I love IWNSGB, too. But I definitely have wondered (through the years) what went wrong that it wasn’t given a chance to be a hit. Was there Idol fatigue already? Or was Danny just too different to be accepted by country radio?


  11. I like Mallary Hope, but I preferred her voice on country songs. Too bad country radio doesn’t give female voices a fair shot.


  12. I got feedback from people who had no ax to grind (if they knew of Danny, they liked him fine, but weren’t necessarily fans per se) that the video for IWNSG was too sad. It made them cry, and they didn’t want to feel that way.


  13. Wondering:
    Do left-handed people drive with left foot? Are cars made for right-foot driving? If cars are made for right-foot and one uses left foot, what about the difficulty?

    Danny’s label is getting a fancy new home

    BMG’s country roster with the acquisition now includes: Jason Aldean, Dustin Lynch, Alabama, Thompson Square, Randy Houser, Parmalee, Joe Nichols, Craig Campbelll, Chase Bryant, Brooke Eden, Trace Adkins, Granger Smith, Kristian Bush, Runaway June and Walker McGuire. Hillary Lindsey and Busby, two of BMG’s biggest songwriters, are also based in Nashville

    BMG’s label roster that includes Infectious, Rise Records, Sanctuary Records, Vagrant, S-Curve and The End Records. Other artists on BMG include blink-182, Fergie, Andy Grammer, Danny Gokey, PVRIS, LP, Janet Jackson, You Me At Six and Rick Astley. It’s more recent signing include 311, A Perfect Circle, AJR, Avril Lavigne, Blondie, and Nickelback. It’s catalog holdings include songs by Iron Maiden, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, and The Kinks among may others.

    I didn’t realize they had acquired Broken Bow Records, which has Jason Aldean among others. I wonder if down the road that may open up any opportunities.



  15. I’m kinda chuckling at the idea that Danny is essentially on the same label as Jason Aldean and Rick Astley. Or vice versa.

    Now there’s something I’d love to hear — the booming voices of Danny and Rick Astley, preferably on a blue-eyed soul song.


  16. Danny’s “The Comeback” started off very quickly. I thought it would go straight to #1. Now, I’ve started questioning if it will make top 10.
    It did not get a boost from the KLove movie. I had expected it would. (It is still at #10 on itunes.) There is no tour now. Danny songs surge more, it seems to me, when he is touring.
    Therefore, I wonder if the song is losing momentum.
    IYAII is appearing now on the itunes singles list. It was about #149 when I checked last.


  17. Danny seems to be just outside top 10 on mediabase format. A couple of songs behind him look to be moving but there are several above that are falling. This is the National Audience format listing.

    Could Danny reach top 10 on this? I’m not sure he has done that before unless RISE made it.

  21. Hey Admin2 and Lurker, as you’ve reported, The Comeback is up on spins on all the charts, but on the Christian National Airplay (the BIGGEST chart) it dropped in position. However, it was only it’s 9th week on the chart. The highest position it has obtained is #13. (It has not made it to 9th place, yet.)

    On Mediabase, Citizen Way’s song Bullet Proof is really moving fast up the chart. They may be giving it room and space between Danny’s song and it. Meanwhile Mercy Me is hanging out at the top of the chart and it has a really high spin count. It will take a while for it to descend and let another song hit #1. Danny wouldn’t want to challlenge it for awhile. I have seen the beginning of a resurgeance for TC and it still has only 30 of the 52 monitored stations playing it.

    The song sales and social media response is pretty good. Plus all those PDs talking about their comeback story. I can’t say I’m worried for it.


  22. Stupid headlines on internet articles annoy me. Such as this one: _______ ________’s sheer shirt shows off more than she bargained for.”
    It would be more accurate if the headline read “less than she had hoped it would.”


  23. Or… “Proper ladies do not wear sheer blouses.”

    Sorry, I get tired of many of the stories on Yahoo. Silly stories.
