Interview: The Greatest Gift – Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey Talks Making Christmas Classics

This is a nice interview by Jason Brow of the “Hollywood Life” and it includes some new Christmas photos of Danny Gokey. The writer says Danny’s new album, “The Greatest Gift: A Christmas Collection” can be described as joyful and triumphant. Danny Gokey tells the writer:

I really do want to write a ‘big Christmas holiday classic,’ and you got to chase those down. They’re not easy to accomplish. For a song to turn into a Christmas classic, it’s just really got to reverberate and dig into the hearts of many people.

Here are some tidbits the Danny offers about his songs:

  1. “Holidays are Here,”it’s just a big song.
  2. We got a song called “Until You,” which is really special. A lot of people are really jiving for that one,
  3. and another one called “Christmas Night that,” I didn’t write on it. I just loved it the moment I heard it. I think it was originally written for a big country artist. It ended up not making her record a couple of years ago. A friend of mine who wrote it like, “Dude, you need to hear this song.” I heard it, I said, “Bro, I’m cutting that one.”
