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:
John J Moser of The Morning Call in Allentown, PA has been following Danny Gokey since his “American Idol” days – which is over ten years, You can read his latest, full interview of Danny HERE.
My three biggest take-aways from this interview are:
“Well, being my first headlining tour, we took a lot of risks on that tour. I’m a risk-taker at heart; it’s like ‘go big or go home.’ A lot of lessons learned – because from now on, I’ll be doing my own headlining tours. And that one just, it really made sense to me in the sense that I got to dream, and I got to see ‘this is what my vision would look like if I did a tour.’ You know? “Yeah, it went very well. Very well.”
“And I love country music to this day, and I might do another record in the future.”
“You know, it’s funny because raising the kids right now is a lot of work. … But I feel like I’m planning for my future. I feel like the more kids, the merrier. You just gotta get through the season of, like, no sleep. And that lasts for quite some time. And lots of sacrifice. “So I’m just bracing myself. I keep telling myself this: ‘I’ll thank myself later.’ I come from a family of six kids and there’s such a richness that comes during when we all get together for holidays. Now there’s a lot of drama – I’ll say that, unfortunately. But I guess that comes with it, doesn’t it?”
Mr Moser gave a very favorable review of Danny’s first headlining tour last year. You can read it HERE.
