Danny Gokey has signed with Capitol Christian Music Group. The announcement comes on the heels of Gokey’s first GRAMMY nomination for his hit album Rise.

“I’m excited to embrace a new chapter and walk into a new beginning with Capitol CMG,” Gokey said. “The music industry has gone through tremendous changes within the last decade and Capitol has always been at the forefront of innovative and creative solutions to help artists embrace the future. I’m honored to share in this next chapter with them and am expecting great things.”

“Danny Gokey is an artist that we have admired for some time,” said Brad O’Donnell, Capitol CMG Chief Creative Officer. “He’s an incredible singer, passionate communicator and has a strong sense of who he is as an artist. When the opportunity came along to work with him we jumped at the chance.”

Capitol CMG Chief Marketing Officer Hudson Plachy added, “We at Capitol CMG could not be more excited about working with Danny and the incredible talent he is gifted with. The passion, creativity and vision Danny brings has already brought him so much success, and we are honored to come alongside him and his team to serve his gifts moving forward.”

Gokey recently released his latest single “Masterpiece” and joined TobyMac on the road for the TobyMac Hits Deep Tour.

In 2009, Gokey earned third place on American Idol, and signed a recording deal with RCA Nashville, where he released a few singles to country radio before transitioning into the Christian radio format.
