WAY-FM recently talked with a young woman, Autumn, on how Danny Gokey‘s song “Tell Your Heart to Beat Again” helped her recovery from a traumatic brain injury. She wanted to share the story with Danny and The Wally Show set up a happy surprise.
Danny Gokey joins me in Episode 32 of the More Than The Music Podcast to share the stories behind his new album, “Rise.” He also explains what his son said while praying over their meal that was both hilarious and adorable.
While Danny and his team are blanketing the radio/media to get the word out about his new CD and single, RISE, we have to lead off with the big hitters! Billboard, People and “American Idol”, of course!
Billboard: Danny Gokey Talks About the Move From Country to Christian Music…
Sometimes taking advice from your heroes doesn’t always turn out like you hope…….Danny Gokey followed mentor Randy Travis’ counsel and began pursuing a career as a country artist. Though Travis told Gokey he’d find success bringing “soul” to the country format, it turns Christian music was the better fit.
Though his country career stalled, Gokey has found his niche in Christian music. The genre is a natural fit for the Milwaukee, Wisconsin native who grew up singing in church.
Danny Gokey joined radio host and fellow “clean freak” Justin Paul of Christian radio network WAY-FM recently for an extended “More Than The Music” podcast. They talk about Danny’s album Hope In Front Of Me and much more, touching on numerous topics both amusing and serious.
