Danny Gokey just wrapped up a series of October concerts Wednesday night, as the lead act with The Band Perry and Steel Magnolia at WYRK’s Fall Acoustic Show in upstate NY. Mid-October also saw Danny performing at the “Bella Bash” fundraiser in Nashville, with Melinda Doolittle and others; and doing three of his own shows at the North Carolina State Fair in Raleigh NC; Prospector’s country music club outside Philadelphia; and the Chameleon Club in Lancaster PA, an intimate setting where Danny and band jumped down on the dance floor to mingle with the crowd during the concert finale!

Danny Gokey’s mid-month schedule also included time at home for media and downtime (fun photo via @calvinnowell) in Nashville, and quite a bit of interesting news including:

  • Danny’s nomination as new/breakthrough artist for Fox’s American Country Awards
  • participation as a red carpet co-host for the upcoming American Music Awards (video), and
  • Danny is recording a Christmas song!
