Danny Gokey Is on the Move with Debut Album Out Now and American Idol Performance on Thursday

Gokey Delivers Spontaneous Performance for the University of Alabama Women’s Basketball Team

Nashville, TN – With his debut album, My Best Days, released yesterday, 19 Recordings/RCA Nashville artist Danny Gokey is crossing the country in support of his album, and tomorrow, he’ll make a welcome return to the American Idol stage for a performance of his irresistible single, “My Best Days Are Ahead of Me.”

Yesterday, Gokey celebrated his album release in and around Atlanta, GA, where a day of TV, radio, and an in-store appearance was capped by an impromptu performance for the University of Alabama women’s basketball team. Members of the team, in town for an SEC tournament game, spotted Danny dining in the same restaurant and asked if he might sing for them. In good-natured style, and with the blessing of restaurant management and fellow diners, Danny’s band grabbed their gear and delivered a performance and autographs on the spot.

In addition to his American Idol performance tomorrow, fans can be on the lookout for Danny in non-restaurant settings in the days to come, including a Thursday CD signing at Barnes & Noble’s The Grove location at 7:30 PM in Los Angeles, and on Friday, Gokey will offer a performance and CD signing at the Mall of America in Bloomington, MN, at 6 PM.

Catch Danny’s American Idol guest performance on the live results show Thursday, March 4 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
