In honor of the return of American Idol

That's right!!! It's back!

I love American Idol. I just do. From the beginning, you pick your favorites.... then, you watch each week to see what the theme will be and how well they do! At the very end, there is a winner.

With the exception of a few, the Idols that we cried, fought, and cheered over for 4 months are usually forgotten by the next January. A new crop of contestants come in and it's out with old, in with new.

Surprisingly enough, the Idols that go country have shown the most success. Carrie Underwood (duh), Kellie Pickler, Bucky Covington, Phil Stacey, and Josh Gracin.... all are doing pretty well. The crazy part is that I've actually met ALL of them, except for Carrie, lol.

Well, Idol fans, a new one has joined the Country Fray..........


DANNY GOKEY

I still wish he were in the finals, instead of Adam Lambert.

Anyway, he recently signed on to do a Country album and was making his way around Florida, last week.


First, he chatted on the air with S and J.....




We invited some listeners to join us in the conference room for a small concert.






He sang for about 45 minutes, including some new stuff and some of the songs he sang on Idol.




He is SUPER nice.

What a fun job! It is too bad he didn't make it to the finals, but he probably has the better end of the deal now!

Hi there! I'm stopping by from Brittany Ann's blog. How funny that you work in radio--so do I! I work as the night girl at an alternative rock station in Boise, ID. Before this, I was the midday girl at a hip hop station in Reno. I NEVER run into radio girls through blogs so this is a first for me. So nice to "meet" you!
