Danny rolls out of a busy holiday weekend and will be in Atlanta, GA, tomorrow morning for a schedule that includes an interview and performance on FOX’s Good Day Atlanta and a national anthem performance tomorrow evening in Charlotte, NC. Gokey will sing the anthem prior to the NBA match-up between the Charlotte Bobcats and the Boston Celtics. Fans will be able to see Gokey’s performance as FOX Sports South airs its HD broadcast of the game across the Carolinas.

Danny spent Thanksgiving in Detroit, where he performed on Wednesday evening as part of the festivities leading up to the city’s 83rd America’s Thanksgiving Parade before returning to his native Wisconsin on Saturday to serve as Grand Marshal for the 30th Annual Grafton Christmas Parade in Grafton, WI, near his hometown.

The digital single for “My Best Days Are Ahead of Me” will be available on December 22, with a full album arriving early next year.
