Editorial Reviews

2010 debut from the former American Idol contestant, who placed third in season eight on the popular TV competition. Gokey's life before American Idol embodies the themes that populate the Country music lexicon, from his humble roots in a poor but loving family to his hard-working days as a truck driver to the loss of his wife. Gokey entered the studio determined to craft a debut album filled with songs that mattered. ''I definitely have something to say with this album and I think people will recognize that,'' he says. ''Music was the catalyst that helped bring healing, a determination and a resolve. When my wife passed, I tried out for American Idol and music brought me hope. It brought me a reason to live again. Now I want to bring that into my music.''

This album is heads above releases by other season 8 idols (Kris Allen, Adam Lambert, Allison Iraheta). Country music fits Danny's voice quite well, and his voice is absolutely incredible. Every song is good; there are no duds in this set. The songs are mostly about making a difference, being happy and affirmative, and finding joy in life, and as such, they seem to flow directly from Danny's heart, even though he did not write them. Danny could and should have a long and successful career in country music, yet his appeal definitely goes beyond that genre. This is just GOOD MUSIC. Way to go, Danny.

Love Danny Gokey and this CD. Just a little bit of country sound and GREAT meaningful lyrics. He has such a wonderful voice and outlook on life. His passion in the songs and good outlook on life is contagious!

First off I would like to say that I am NOT a country music fan at all. I almost hate the style of music. I was a die hard fan of Danny during American Idol, so I had to buy his CD. I must say, he does not have that typical nasal sound that most country artists have.

You seriously can feel the passion in every single one his songs. The last song, "I will not say goodbye" is a very emotional song considering what he has gone through in his life. There is not a bad song on the whole album.

Even if you are not a country music fan, get this CD. It is pretty good. Not all of the songs have the twangy god-awful guitar sound to it.

Looking forward to seeing more from Gokey.

I will preface this review by saying that I was indeed a very big Danny Gokey fan during his time on "American Idol." After Idol ended, I wasn't sure what would happen with him, but I kept my fingers crossed. When I heard that Danny had decided to do country music, I was initially disappointed, hoping that he would go the pop-soul route. But, I decided to stick by him and support him anyway. But any disappointment I had evaporated the moment I first heard his debut single, "My Best Days Are Ahead Of Me." It's a fun, upbeat song that oozes positivity and not only speaks of Gokey's claim that his best days are ahead of him (and it seems likely that he is correct), but it also has a way of encouraging listeners to believe the same of themselves without being preachy or cheesy. In fact, the entire album is so laden with soul, pop, and rock influences that I don't really even think of "My Best Days" as a country CD. The tracks "Like That's A Bad Thing," "Get Away," "Life On Ya," and "Be Somebody" fall in that same vein...fun, upbeat songs that are filled with positive energy, something that I think a lot of people need right now. "Be Somebody," in particular speaks on issues in today's society, including "street life," trying to impress people instead of being yourself, and people getting shot due to the colors of the clothes they wear. It's one of my favorite tracks on the album. "I Still Believe" speaks about believing in God even without much physical evidence, while "It's Only" is a timely ballad about societal issues and charity that, once again, gets its point across without being overbearing or preachy.Read more ›

This is part of a great new wave of country music. I have not listened to country with any enjoyment (save for taylor swift) since I was a kid. I hope this trend continues!

Great album, you won't be disappointed!

I was a HUGE Danny Gokey when when he was on American Idol, so I had to buy is album even though I am not a country music fan. I am so glad that I did. Danny's voice is incredible. The whole album is great. None of the songs have a heavy country twang to them, although the melodies on some of the songs are very country sounding. The lyrics tell heartfelt stories. I love the inspirational messages. I think that "I Will Not Say Goodbye" will be a big crossover hit. Danny Gokey is going to be very successful based on his debut album!

Danny's "My Best Days" debut is excellent! Every bit as good as the debut released by Carrie Underwood and Daughtry. Danny really has a feel for country music, and I haven't listened to much since it came out. I highly recommend this release.

OMG! I couldn't wait to get this CD. Since last season of American Idol, I have been a big fan. I purchased this on Tuesday (release date) and have already played it entirely at least 50 times. Every song tells a story and Danny is completely believable. Keep up the good work and I hope your next work will be something a little more "pop" related. I am not a big country fan but absolutely love this!

danny has previewed 6 songs from the album and they're all good!!!
I totally agree. All of the songs I've heard from him have been incredible--from "My Best Days Are Ahead Of Me" to "Be Somebody," "Will Not Say Goodbye," and "It's Only," they're all terrific songs.

Passionate Voice
He has the most soulful voice I have heard in country. I have met him too and he is one celebrity who appreciates his fans and thinks they are just as important as he is!

Danny's so personable
Yeah, I met Danny once, though briefly. He was awesome. After seeing and hearing so many bloggers and Idol critics rip him apart during his time on the show, I realized just how wrong they all were. He was easily the most personable person on the Idol tour and spent A LOT of time with the... Read More
