Danny Gokey premiered his new song, “It’s Only” on the Milwaukee country station, FM106.1 this mornning. Written by Dave and Charles from Lady Antebellum and produced by Carrie Underwood producer, Mark Bright, the song is sentimental, inspirational and full of emotion.
In other word’s, it’s right in Danny’s wheelhouse.
One thing I noted during the summer tour, is how intensely Danny connected to his audience. The crowd loved the little inspirational speech he gave before Rascal Flatt’s “My Wish”, totally soaking up the message of the song. If Danny can downplay his newbie status, and stick to his strengths, he’s got shot at country.
Interview (sorry, my internet transmission cut out for a few seconds…)
“It’s Only” will be released for digital download on December 14. The album comes out March 2010.
