  1. Counting the days until I see all “the guys”….traveling 3-1/2 hours this time and it’s a journey that I’ve been looking forward to more than ever…the songs on this new album have touched me, molded me, helped me, made me cry and made me shout with joy….Danny and his team have done it again!! Gokeygroupie

  2. I hope you get good traveling weather for your concert, Angelsnell! We are experiencing our second snow fall of the season and “nobody’s got time for that!”

  3. I know Ellen, but when I get time to post it, I do it! 😉 Otherwise it could end up late, LOL.

  4. Happy November! We have about 4 inches of snow on the ground…. hopefully it will be gone soon and we can resume fall, LOL!

    I think “Wanted” is one of Danny’s slowest moving songs that he’s had in awhile. I could be that stations It also has the lowest AI of the songs around it.

  5. Happy Autumn, Everyone!

    Very cold here. They are blowing snow at one of the tubing runs, but not our ski/snowboard mountains, yet.

    Is the new CD doing as well as RISE?

  6. ..I do know Autumn begins in September. Just wishing for more Autumn days before Winter begins. 😉

  7. The Holidays Are Here is my favorite from the xmas album.It is light and fun.The other ones are emotionally bit of heavy for me.There are several really good songs on it.But I was expecting some joyful tracks.Then again I dont celebrate xmas.Maybe I just get the faulse idea about xmas in the first place.

  8. I agree with you, Mr Bing…., I rhink Danny has added more religious weight to even standard Christmas songs. I think Christmas is Here was more balanced, but of course I am grateful to have more DG Christmas music.

    Our snow is melting today, so it is a wet mess outside… I am hoping for dry weather so the many leaves that have fallen (and about to fall) can blow away! (We live surrounded by ag fields, so I don’t have to worry about annoying my neighbors…

    Unfortunately, rain and below normal temps are predicted for next week, here.


  9. Hi everyone, using a different email as I couldn’t figure how to login my usual way, when trying through my phone. Oops. (Admin2,)

    Is this the first time we’ve seen Danny get a writing credit on a song recorded by another artist?


    I haven’t listened to the full new EP yet. Just sampled the audio from YT. (With apologies to Jan, it’s too early for me to get Christmas music!!) I liked the duet with David A, nice combination of two good but very different vocalists.

  10. From that other website, here is what they report as Billboard chart positions. (I really don’t like that Billboard has made chart access a paid service….I haven’t been willing to shell out for the monthly fee since they changed access.)

    Danny Gokey:
    “Haven’t Seen it Yet” [Album]: Christian 34 (24)
    “The Greatest Gift” A Christmas Collection”: Album 99 (NEW); Holiday Album 11 (23); Holiday Album Sales 5 (8)
    “Wanted”: Christian Airplay 41 (44); Christian Songs 45 (34)

  11. Danny accidentally scalded his feet before the show last night with his wardrobe steamer! Yikes!!

  12. Oh my goodness! How does that happen? Bet that was painful. 🙁

    Hope Danny feels better..

  13. Not an awards person, but very excited for Danny’s nomination.
    He’s worked very hard. I agree with you, Jan.
    Since I have been a Danny Gokey fan for all these years… yes, I did do a little jump at his nominations. What a journey he’s been on. Very proud!

  14. Hi guys!

    Congrats again Danny! I remember the header for Danny’s twitter account many years ago was about having Grammy’s one day. It is giving me goosebumps thinking that he’ll win this. I’m so happy and proud of him.

    God bless you all. I missed you.

  15. I just received a refund back from the company I purchased Danny’s Christmas Tour tickets. They had sold out of their tickets. I’m not sure where to go, now. Very disappointed. Not sure when Danny and Natalie will be out this way again. Any suggestions..

  16. That is very unusual. I have never had my tickets cancelled. I would call their office if it happened to me….

  17. A person called my husband to say their tickets had sold out.
    But, another door opened. Instead of Riverside, we are going by San Diego. Happy about that. We have our zoo passes we haven’t used this year, so we’re going to stay a couple of days. We’ve been wanting to get down that way. Everything worked out. 🙂

  18. Just had a bad fall. I am so tired of this. I keep beating up my knees until there will be nothing left. 🙁

  19. Sorry to hear about your fall, Ellen. That is scary stuff.

    I tripped on the vacuum in our basement and fell full out (hitting my hand and hip) on the concrete floor. Fortunately, I was just sore for a couple of days. I really laid myself out. Spread out the impact, lol.

  20. Ouch on the fall, that sounds very painful and uncomfortable. A friend of mine here fell down a flight of stairs recently and had a lot of difficulties after.

    This is a nice article/interview about Danny’s new Christmas album. Though it contains one interesting word that I feel sure must be a typo and not an actual DG quote 😳 https://hollywoodlife.com/2019/11/22/danny-gokey-the-greatest-gift-christmas-collection-new-album-interview/

    I’m glad to see the two GRAMMY nods, and that Danny is the only Capitol label nominee for the song award. Hopefully the new label will give the nomination their full support. Though on name recognition and other factors, a collaboration with Dolly Parton may be hard to beat if the category is voted by the entire GRAMMY membership, idk – I haven’t heard the song.

  21. I heard a couple of the other song nominees on radio today. Not crazy about them. One was the For King and Country song, which didn’t have any clearly discernible Dolly Parton content. Looking it up, that seems to be an alternate version of the song?. While I like it better than the radio cut I heard, still seems like a weird way to get song of the year nomination with an alternate version than the one you’ve had out to radio and most people would be familiar with.

  22. The video and cu with Dolly was released after the original version reached #1. I was surprised it was the version entered, too. Perhaps they feel the collaboration is more note worthy, remarkable?

  23. Hope you are feeling better, Ellen.

    Goodness, Jan. You could have really hurt yourself.

    Luckily, I have just one step into the garage. Was pretty embarrassing when I tripped on that a few years ago. Can’t imagine if I had a flight of stairs. 🙂

    Wanted to wish everyone who celebrates, “HAPPY THANKSGIVING!”

    And, for everyone else… hi. 🙂

  24. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who celebrates the holiday! In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it is easy to forget all that we have to be thankful for!

  25. Today is our Thanksgiving! Wishing a great day to all! I am thankful for my family, friends and for our current good health.

    Three pies are done. The bread for the dinner is in the oven, up next: making stuffing for our 20 pound bird! I am surrounded by the music from my playlist of Danny Christmas music 🌲😍

    Here is a third interview about the Christmas album:


    I had a nice surprise yesterday, Team Danny actually gave a shout out to dannygokeynews on Facebook for the content we find and post. 😊

  26. Today is our Thanksgiving! The bread for the dinner is in the oven, up next: making stuffing for our 20 pound bird! I am working to my playlist of Danny Christmas music 🌲😍

    Here is a third interview about the Christmas album


    I had a nice surprise yesterday, Team Danny actually gave a shout out to dannygokeynews on Facebook for the content we find and post. 😊

  27. I was really hoping people would ignore the snarky headline in that other place that shall not be named — the article was but one of many in the headline thread — but it was not to be. sigh (I did my part by not engaging.)

  28. I only go to this site for my Danny Gokey news. It’s sad that people still say such mean things.

    I hope it wasn’t about his Christmas video. I still have the tune in my head. Like I mentioned in my other post.. his children were adorable in the video.

    Thank you for always being Danny’s defender, Ellen. Hope you are feeling better.

  29. I wasn’t surprised that quote was put in the headline by a certain blog… No one touched it for hours. Even so, I’ve seen a lot worse comments. Danny’s success and some supporters have made a big difference. And the fact they believe he is corralled in CCM 😉

  30. Still don’t know what the article was about. Maybe I’m better not knowing..

    Happy Birthday to Victoria. Can’t believe she is five years old. Where is the time going? It was just yesterday you posted about her birth.

    Hello to Lurker and others I miss seeing on this site.

  31. Danny’s Christmas video is posted at the site that shall not be named. No comments yet, which given the recency of the negative ones, is probably a good thing.

  32. Hey, I do believe it’s December and we need a new discussion post!

    I am doing better, by the way. I can walk — just not super long/far. And my knees are stiff and not happy about stairs. Also, my hips are stiff, but I’m not sure whether that is from the fall or lack of exercise.
