Keith Urban Gives a Shout-Out to Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey had one of his dreams come true when he spoke with Keith Urban backstage at the CMT Music Awards.
“I was walking down the hallway, and Keith Urban called me by him. It was the coolest thing,” said Gokey. “He was surrounded by people, but I just see him and I walk by and he goes, ‘Danny, come here.’ I went running up there, and he mentioned that his family loves my [previous] single, ‘My Best Days Are Ahead of Me.’”
Urban went on to explain how much he liked the song.
“He mentioned a story of how they were walking through Nashville Shores [water park] and how they heard it ... and he said, ‘I know that voice.’ And he went and looked it up in a Billboard magazine, and he goes, ‘Yep, I was right.’ And he said, ‘We love that song. It's a great song.’ I was honored. I was speechless at that moment.”
Gokey’s new single and video, “I Will Not Say Goodbye,” just hit the airwaves. Watch for Gokey at Summerfest in Milwaukee on July 4 and 5.
