  1. I was thinking ” A New Day” might be the first release or it was close to that. I absolutely loved this!

  2. Hi Catherine! I think “Just Haven’t Seen it Yet” could do really well on Christian radio. And Danny needs a #1 for this new album.

    I really like New Day, but while it is a fun, positive message, its more of a secular style song – and he has already had push back by stations wanting more Christ/Jesus focused messages in his songs.

    Even with JHSIY, I don’t think he says God or Jesus, just refers to “He, His”.

    BTW, the song title may be changing to Haven’t Seen It Yet – or Danny was just referring it in a shorthanded way.

  3. Thank you Jan. I love everything that Danny has created and I look forward hearing his next release and next album. Danny has so,much more to share with the world on,behalf of our Jesus. I hear you about needing a number one for the next album! We all want that for him.

  4. Saw Danny about 3 weeks ago … “Haven’t Seen It Yet” was one of the most encouraging songs for me for the entire evening. It was an awesome concert, but this song was amazing.

  5. I’m glad to see Danny’s been working with some really successful writers and producers. I’ve just added a song that has been added to Danny’s list

  6. Here’s another just added: (#91 for Danny)

  7. Two more songs registered! I heard in a recent interview that Danny turned in his album to his record company a week ago. So its time for the masters and producing the final version!

  8. I always like looking up the songwriters. For the first song, both of the co-writers seem to have a predominantly country background. Hmm. (per wiki, fwiw)

    Mobley’s first cut as a single was Alabama’s “We Can’t Love Like This Anymore” in 1994. Among his cuts are the number 1 singles “How Forever Feels” and “There Goes My Life” by Kenny Chesney, “Fast Cars and Freedom”, “Take Me There” and “Banjo” by Rascal Flatts and “How Country Feels” by Randy Houser.

    Although Thrasher Shiver has not been active since 1997, Thrasher has written several singles for other country music artists, such as Jason Aldean, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Diamond Rio, and Montgomery Gentry. Thrasher has also received an ASCAP Songwriter of the Year award in 2004.

    Interesting tidbit. Wendell’s name seemed vaguely familiar. Looking him up on another site, he’s a writer for My Best Days as was Neil Thrasher.

    For different songs though. Wendell was a co-writer on Crazy Not To, and Neil on Like That’s A Bad Thing.

  9. Thinking about the “Crazy Not To” connection, I wonder if this could be the song speaking to the children?

    Of course with the other credit, I could also speculate it’s more of a rock-tinged song lol
