  1. The tennis shoes are not good… He has lots of nice boots… But he may not have packed them for this very long Street Week trip…

  2. I totally debated mentioning the hat, but stopped myself as I think it was ok in the context (at least as much as the jeans & tee 🤐 ). And he took it off for the NA.

    I might have let the shoes go without comment if they’d been a dark color.

  3. Its always good to see Danny singing duets – and especially with great singers like Mandisa, Natalie and now, Melinda.

    According to a Billboard tweet that I RT, Danny’s album placed #76 on the Billboard 200 list. That’s a pretty good ranking.

    My only concern is whether Lauren’s latest is going to take the #1 Christian album for his debut week… I guess we will see!

  4. The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). BTS is bound for No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with their latest release, Map of the Soul: Persona.
    ….Other albums aiming for notable bows on next week’s chart include Anderson .Paak’s Ventura, Aaron Lewis’ State I’m In, Danny Gokey’s Haven’t Seen It Yet, LSD’s Labrinth, Sia & Diplo Present… LSD, Melissa Etheridge’s Medicine Show and Norah Jones’ Begin Again.

    Top debuts on this week’s #Billboard200:

    @BTS_twt ‘Map of the Soul: PERSONA’ No. 1
    @AndersonPaak ‘Ventura’ No. 4
    @Beyonce ‘HOMECOMING’ No. 7
    @Aaronlewismusic ‘State I’m In’ No. 18
    @Labrinth @Sia @diplo ‘LSD’ No. 70
    @dannygokey ‘Haven’t Seen It Yet’ No. 76

  5. Billboard is starting to post the 4-27-19 chart milestones, but they haven’t reported Christian Albums, yet.

  6. I would have liked to see Danny get that third #1 at Christian Albums, but Lauren’s fans do so much streaming, his album sales couldn’t overcome it.

    Its still nice to see he did get a Billboard #1 with this album. Hopefully the album will “have legs” and sell well as HSIY continues to climb on the charts and other releases/promotions occur.

  7. Seems like he’s off to a good start. The stats have some interesting insights into demographics.

    I’d assume Danny did particularly well on “albums” sold because he had the promotion to see them on the WinterJam tour plus other events, plus regular purchasers thru Amazon, iTunes etc.

    Streaming seems to be a growth area where his new label is just starting to get him better connected with some of the playlists as we saw in the roll-up for Pandora, Amazon Music and probably others.


    A concert snippet from the Arkansas appearance – I know I’ve heard the song before but not sure what it is.


    ETA: oh, that’s the Justin Timberlake song someone had to educate me about previously 😳

    I see it has 984,804,245 views on Youtube, I must be one of a tiny tiny number who wouldn’t know what it is 😳 😳 😳

  8. Danny is listed as a performer for the K-Love Fan Awards on June 9th. (Nice that they listed him second, however that was decided).

    The voting window coincided with a lot of Danny’s album promo pushing up his name recognition. It would be nice if he might win Male Artist again but there are always a lot of popular choices.

    More importantly this year with a CCM major label pushing him, it would be nice to see him get some serious Dove and Grammy consideration for the new album / songs?

  9. Too funny you forgot Justin Timberlake…. Danny performed it on his Hope Encounter Tour. I was glad to see him put a song into the mix that was a cover and hugely popular (even if certain people didn’t recognize it…)

    I think Danny’s name starting in the beginning of the alphabet is often a benefit with listing of artists at events 😉 Glad to see Danny’s a performer at the Klove Event. Hopefully the voters will rally behind him again.

  10. I thought about alphabetical but I was missing the pattern if that’s what it was. Perhaps Lurker can help us with that. Seems to me in the past I’ve usually seen Danny’s name further down the lists.

    And wrt Justin, well, I am mostly a country music listener or oldie standards (Sinatra etc).

    And my guilty pleasure boy band was always Backstreet Boys, not NSYNC

  11. Hope everyone had a beautiful Easter.

    My sister in law, sent a photo of Danny on Sirius. Now, I really have no idea what that is really. But, I thought that impressive. 🙂

    I like the oldie standards, too. 🙂

  12. Hey Cindy3, Sirius radio is a very popular internet radio broadcaster with many, many channels. Many new cars come with a 6 month subscription so you can get hooked. The Christian station is The Message.
