Although it started as a month that included some rare vacation time, Danny Gokey’s July schedule has been crowded with a diverse set of performances and appearances, from his hometown concert closing out one of the stages at Milwaukee’s Summerfest, his visit to the Milwaukee auditions for American Idol season 10, and numerous headlining shows and concerts with other country artists. In July, Danny is appearing with or opening for country artists including Sugarland, Tim McGraw, James Otto, and Sara Evans.
Danny will finish out the month of July with three dates opening for Sugarland in St. Louis MO, Aubuquerque NM, and Cheyenne WY; a radio station listener concert in Salt Lake City UT; and a Wyoming country music festival.
After the jump, more photos and video from several of Danny’s July events.
