Danny Gokey Is Getting in the Holiday Spirit with the Release of “Tennessee Christmas”

Digital Single Available Now!

Nashville, TN – 19 Recordings/RCA Nashville recording artist Danny Gokey hails from Wisconsin, but living in Tennessee now may have given him a little extra incentive to record “Tennessee Christmas,” the holiday favorite first made famous by its co-writer, Amy Grant. Serviced to country radio last week and available to fans now as a digital single, the song is one that Danny was delighted to sing as the first holiday music he’s ever released.

“I love Amy Grant’s version of ‘Tennessee Christmas,’” Gokey says. By recording the song, Danny offers, “I wanted to add my own soulful country touch to this wonderful classic.”

The song is available for download at your favorite online music retailer, as well as on Danny’s site at www.dannygokey.com.

After co-hosting this past weekend’s online red carpet broadcast for the American Music Awards, Gokey is also a nominee for another award show – the American Country Awards – where he’s nominated in the category of Artist of the Year: Breakthrough Artist. The American Country Awards will air December 6 on FOX.

About Danny: Danny Gokey became a favorite of millions of fans as a finalist on Season Eight of American Idol. This past March, the Milwaukee native and 19 Recordings/RCA Nashville recording artist made chart history with the release of his debut album, My Best Days, which set a digital sales record and delivered the best first-week sales of any debut country male in 18 years. Following the success of his feel-good anthem, “My Best Days Are Ahead of Me,” Danny’s most recent single was the beautiful ballad, “I Will Not Say Goodbye.” Danny credits his late wife, Sophia, with the inspiration to pursue his musical dreams on Idol, and he continues to honor her with the charitable work of the Sophia’s Heart Foundation, founded in her memory.
