  2. Hi Nancy. I read Danny’s book back in 2013 when it came out. Please come back and let us know what part impacted you the most!

  3. Here is the video that the lead photo came from:

    I kind of expected Danny to break into a Spanish verse midway through the song. <3

  4. Thank you for using the composite art pics in posts..editing ( n taking them) pics is a passion. doing screen shots from Danny’s music vids n making art composite photos is a new venture. I’m still being lead in new areas in it..blessings

  5. It’s our pleasure to share them more broadly, Renee! Thanks for your time and talents!

  6. Renee…these art composite photos are outstanding!! Love them!!! πŸ’™πŸŽΆπŸ’™ #GokeyGroupie

  7. Hi, Admin2! *waving* πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ 😎 Hope you had a happy Fourth of July.

  8. Hi Admin2….hope all is well!! πŸ’₯πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ πŸ’₯

  9. Hello, hello!

    Nice to see that Danny has a few concerts this weekend. (Through Leyicet, it looks like they are moving stuff to their new land/house. I surmise the house isn’t ready, yet.)

    I know a couple of ladies going to one of Danny’s shows. Hopefully we will get a few pictures or snippets of info. I haven’t seen any news about Danny’s new TV show, “Better Than I Found It” that was suppose to have its first episode taped in Nashville in June.

    I’m heading out on our annual “Neighbor Ladies Weekend Away” with my daughter, a good friend and her two daughters.

    I hope everyone else has a great weekend, too.

  10. TV show?? How’d I miss that information Jan?? Tell me more about that!! #GokeyGroupie

  11. Hello, Everyone. πŸ™‚

    I have to say along with Danny… the band is very nice looking. πŸ˜‰ And, very talented.

    Performing, writing, preparing for next tour, family, and moving…. Danny is VERY busy.

    Hot, hot, and very hot out our way. Fire down the mountain from us. Hopefully, we have rain in the next few days.

    Have fun, Jan.

    Tried to find some information about Danny’s new TV series. No luck.

    Have a beautiful day.. β™«β™ͺβ˜Όβ™«β™«β˜Ό

  12. hi everyone, we’re testing a few things to see if we want to change the service plan for the site. we may not keep them, but let us know what you think.

    one thing I’ve turned on is a tool to let you edit comments for a few minutes after you post. see if it works for you?

  13. I’ve also added a feature with some buttons where you can tell us your thoughts about a post. See just under the main area before the comment section begins.

  14. No, I didn’t Jan, and ADMIN2. Thank you. πŸ™‚ Like the improvements.

    Here we go again.. I’m so sad. Another fire at the bottom of our mountains. The most beautiful area. My great grandparents, grandparents, parents, never experienced all the fires we have had. It just breaks my heart. β™₯

  15. I already warned Jan I’ll probably break the site (a little, anyway) experimenting for a couple of days πŸ™‚

  16. I’m sorry to hear you are dealing with more fires Cindy, I can’t imagine how that must be

  17. One thing I’ve turned on is a feature called “markdown” which is easy to use and lets you do a little formatting.

    To put something in italics, you can add a * just before your text and then just after * (without the extra space I put there ) And to bold something, you do the same but with ** my text goes here **.

    And it looks like this myitalicizedtext and my bolded text

    I hope πŸ™‚

    This page gives some examples if you want to experiment with it


  18. Just made a few purchases on Amazon and did remember to use the Danny Gokey News fansite to get to Amazon’s site. Every little bit helps.

  19. Ooh, I like the edit feature. I make more typos than I used to. Five minutes is plenty of time to make a correction. I usually notice an error right away.

  20. This is a test . . .

    I have often wanted to use bold and italics in various posts, but usually had to settle for ALLCAPS only when strictly necessary, so as not to be accused of yelling at people.

  21. Can I say yet again how much I love Renee’s composite art of Danny? Have no idea how she does it, but I wish Danny and/or his new label would use one of her pics in the booklet for the new CD. (I especially love the one from “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again.” At least I think it’s that one.) Or have Renee create the art from a photo of their choice. Like I said, I have no idea what or how she does what she does, but the effect has an immediate emotional impact.

    (P.S.) I suspect it works best taken from a screenshot of a video or concert, when Danny is in motion, rather than a posed photo?

  22. As another choice, I hope Danny or his label would use Annette Holloway for photography, if that is possible.

  23. I am still waiting to hear “If You Ain’t In It” on my local CCM stations. But in the interim, it is not too early to speculate about what Danny and his new label might do . . .

  24. Finally! I actually had to make two edits to my last post — I included a comma that didn’t belong, and I misspelled “too” as “to.” So the edit function worked beautifully for me!

    Thanks, Admin2!

  25. Thanks for going on over to Amazon via our links, Ellen! I do that, too. Also glad you like Annette and Renee’s work. I think they are special and kind to share with us!

  26. Ellen I’m hearing IYAII at least a few times a week in Upstate NY… hope you get to hear it soon!! GokeyGroupie

  27. I am on a business trip, please feel free to share Danny news in my absence!!

  28. Have fun, Jan! (Hey, even business trips can be fun if they are in an interesting location.)

  29. I guess IYAII is #36 on the Billboard chart, up one slot from last week?

  30. Hello, Everyone..

    My husband and I just bought our VIP tickets to see Danny in Los Angeles, at the Orpheum Theatre. Excited, but not sure what happens when you have VIP tickets. When I saw Danny in 2010..I can’t believe all those years ago..his concert was in a small venue when I met him. I’m sure things are done differently now. Plus, where he will be performing looks beautiful from the photos I’ve seen. What do you wear? It’s a historic theater where Jack Benny, Judy Garland, and others have performed. Any suggestions?

    Hoping for more rain today. Our ground is very wet from all the water. Our vegetables are growing, and growing. Unfortunately, the fire is still burning, but at a very slow rate. Only 1300 acres. Happy for that. πŸ™‚

  31. IYAII finally showing on itunes singles again: #181. I had not seen it since the last time I posted about it.

  32. Cindy, I’ve seen all kinds of outfits at concerts. Pick something you like that’s comfortable would be my suggestion.

    After mostly listening to country radio lately, I thought I’d switch back to the Christian stations this week. Usually I’ve been listening to the larger DC market station, which plays Danny pretty often but none of his recent songs since Rise.

    I switched yesterday just to see what the Baltimore station was doing. Their main format had Tell Your Heart To Beat Again this morning (they loved the preachers’ version as well). And I was surprised driving home tonight from work to actually hear The Comeback! It sounded pretty decent on radio except I’m not a fan of the repetitive oh-oh-oh-oh-oh section πŸ™

  33. Thanks, ADMIN2. πŸ™‚

    I know that I saw Danny perform a little while ago, but this will be the second time seeing him perform with just his band. Looking forward to it, and the beautiful theater. πŸ™‚

  34. I heard “Rise” a lot, “The Comeback” occasionally, and “Masterpiece” rarely. I really want to hear “If You Ain’t In It,” but haven’t yet.

    “The Comeback” sounded better on radio than I expected.

  35. Cindy3, wishing you and your community good luck. We’ve got wildfires going on here in OR, too.

  36. People rarely dress up for events anymore, Cindy3, which I find somewhat sad. I would wear something that you like and look good in, but that also is comfortable. When I see Danny here in OR, he will be performing in a performance art theater, so I will probably dress up a bit more than I do for an ordinary concert. I know I did that when I saw Little Big Town in a similar type of venue a few years ago.

  37. I heard Comeback this morning and it’s still a rarity to hear If You Ain’t In It on Air1….but if I get the itch (which is often) I just pop in my CD!! #GokeyGroupie

  38. Hi everybody. Finished our Tradeshow in San Francisco last night. I have a day of sightseeing and then head back home to attend my in laws 60th wedding anniversary party.

    Glad to see you all visiting here!!

  39. Thank you, Ellen. The theater Danny will be performing in looks beautiful. I think I’ll have to wear something dresser than blue jeans. πŸ˜‰ I remember when people would dress up more, too.

  40. Have fun, Jan. There is lots to see in San Francisco. Don’t forget Ghirardelli Square!!

  41. Didn’t catch my spelling mistake before time was out.

    “I think I’ll have to wear something more dressy than blue jeans.” Or, “I think I’ll have to wear something dressier than blue jeans.”

    Lurker, which is the correct way?

  42. Cindy3, I prefer “more dressy,” but I’m not sure that either is wrong. And BTW, I never even caught that typo! As anyone who has ever done proofreading knows, the human brain tends to automatically fill in the correct information. We often don’t notice typos.

  43. Jan, enjoy San Francisco! I have fond memories of my roadtrip there with Tonic when we were in CA for Danny’s concert in Sacramento. I think it was his last full-band performance as a country artist. Anyway, Tonic and I had a lot of fun in SF. Among other things, we took one of those open-air double-decker tour bus rides, and the knots in our hair afterwards were not fun! But the tour was fun!

  44. “I think I’ll have to wear something dresser than blue jeans. πŸ˜‰”

    That’s why I have quite a few pairs of black jeans πŸ˜‰

  45. Thank you, Lurker. πŸ™‚

    Ha-Ha.. I have a few pair of black jeans, ADMIN2. Good idea. πŸ™‚

    Sorry to hear about your fires, Ellen. All the best. πŸ™‚

  46. So interesting that Danny, Leyicet, Victoria and Little Danny are in Europe this week — for business. Curious what they are doing… Rome today.

  47. How exciting, Europe! I happen to look on Danny’s twitter page, and he said he was at the doctor’s with Gabriel. It must have been a few days ago.

    Did you have fun sight seeing, Jan?

  48. I’m back! Sorry I’ve been MIA, but I enjoyed a few days in San Francisco and then helped my inlaws celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary! It was rather warm for an outdoor event, but not as bad as it could have been. And no rain!

    I see that Danny, Leyicet, Danielito, Victoria, Penny and Maestro have been enjoying a European cruise. It must be work related or I would doubt that P&M would be along on their vacation.

    Makes me wonder what the purpose is?

  49. It is slow climber, but it is good to see positive spins for Danny’s IYAII



    DANNY GOKEY If You Ain’t In It


  50. I hear it almost every day Jan on Air1….hoping it continues to climb!! #GokeyGroupie

  51. Angelsnell, that’s good news. My station didn’t play Masterpiece and hasn’t added his new one, either.

    I did see on the AC Indicator Chart that three stations added it this week:

    Issue Date:

    DANNY GOKEY If You Ain’t In It (BMG)
    WCRH (Williamsport MD), WNFR, (Port Huron, MI) WOLW (Cadillac, MI)


  52. Found out what Danny is doing in Europe:

    “a charity cruise for Convoy of Hope, he’s singing for their group at night & we sightsee during the day”.

  53. Corpus Christi, Augusta, Honolulu are now spinning IYAII (3 monitored stations).

  54. IYAII has moved into the Top 50 on Mediabase CAC @ #49.

    Up to #34 on Billboard Christian Airplay

  55. Looks like Danny and family are having a wonderful vacation. πŸ™‚

    Sorry to hear about the terrible fire burning in Oregon, Ellen. Hope you are doing well.

    Have a beautiful day, everyone.

  56. Good to see Danny and Jordin’s collaboration with the Social Club Misfits was released as a single:

    Issue Date:

    Social Club Misfits Tuyo (Capitol CMG)
    Total Plays: 219, Total Stations: 4, Total Adds: 0

  57. That’s Danny’s new label, right?

    It will be good if the song takes off, since Danny’s vocals are pretty prominent and it’s a fun song.

  58. Yup! So, the adds are usually slow to come in the Christian music genre. Except when it comes to Lauren Daigle. Her new song burst onto Billboard Airplay Chart at #22 with 31 stations added it! I listened to it. Sounds like a big hit for her. She could sit on top of the chart for awhile once she gets there.

  59. On Twitter, Danny’s video of him singing was great!! I was disappointed I wasn’t able to hear all the song. πŸ™

    Minus adorable Gabriel.. the photo of Danny, Leyicet, Daniel, and Victoria, was the cutest. Very beautiful family. πŸ™‚

    We have clouds.. rain is falling all around.. but, not here. πŸ™
