New Video and Single

Acclaimed Track Becomes Poignant Video, Released Digitally This Week

Nashville, TN – 19 Recordings/RCA Nashville recording artist Danny Gokey is poised to hit the radio airwaves with a new single, when this coming Monday marks the official radio impact date of his powerful recording, “I Will Not Say Goodbye.”  The heartfelt ballad, with its compelling portrait of coping with the loss of a loved one, has been one of the most acclaimed tracks from Gokey’s debut album, My Best Days, while the poignant music video made its official premiere this past weekend as part of CMT’s Big New Music Weekend.

Amid the praise for the single, The New York Times declared “I Will Not Say Goodbye” as “devastating … the album’s best song,” while Music Row recently cheered the “soulful, soaring ballad,” adding, “The man sings the fire out of it.”

Songwriter Vicky McGehee, who wrote “I Will Not Say Goodbye” with Lari White and Chuck Cannon, said of Danny’s recording, “His voice is amazing, and when I heard ‘I Will Not Say Goodbye,’ it made me realize why I love writing so much.  It’s like that song found its home.”

In addition to its debut this past weekend, the music video for “I Will Not Say Goodbye” was released this Tuesday as a digital download. 

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 new single is 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. For more information and all things Danny, visit him online at
