Another fresh material, this time titled "My Best Days Are Ahead of Me", from Danny Gokey has been unleashed. Recently, a portion of the track has been showcased live during his performance in Los Angeles for TV station KTLA.

"I love this song for what it stands for," said the "American Idol" alum as quoted by USA Today. "I don't live in the past. I live in the 'now' ... in the future ... and in the dreams that I have. I know that my best days really are ahead of me."

"My Best Days Are Ahead of Me" will be made available for digital download on December 22. The track is picked up as the first single for Danny's forthcoming RCA debut album which is aimed for March 2010 release, replacing single "It's Only" which was previously unveiled prior to "My Best Days".

What a positive and upbeat song. Danny is an extremely talented man, and we wish him nothing but the best of success. We will definetely buying his CD when it comes out. As for SophiasGhost's comments. We are all entitled to our own opionions, but all you have done is shown how immature and rude you are....

Awesome, Danny! Looking forward to hearing the rest of the "tunes." A little confused on the change of the kickoff song, but I understand the second one is not quite as sad.

Loved both of the songs, but especially "It's Only." March is a long way off..too bad it couldn't have been released around the holidays. It would have been on my wish list.

I loved both of the songs. I think that It's Only really showed off Danny's vocal range, but My Best Days is more upbeat. Looking forward to the CD/DVD.

First single pulled out of rotation after only one week? Sounds like the label is freaked out about how bad his material is turning out. What did they expect from that fat douche?

I also love both songs but understand why Danny and his label want to release an upbeat song as his first single. Can't wait to buy both songs and to hear the rest of the songs from Danny's debut album.

I love both songs and I hope they are both available on ITUNES as I think they will both do very well.

“My Best Days” is an upbeat, feel good song. I think it will have wider appeal. I can see something like this being very popular in live performances. And the video will be fun. I am willing to bet they will have Danny dancing. Danny said that when it was first performed at Sony, someone said that can easily see this song being played in a movie. Ironically, the DJ who interviewed Danny said the same thing. It certainly features Danny’s soulful voice. And I don’t think the critics will claim that this is more of a CCM song. And it certainly fits Danny’s personality – he really is an upbeat, fun kind of guy.

I think they made the right decision by releasing "My Best Days' as the first single. It's upbeat, will get more radio play, and probably help sell more CDs. Go Danny - you deserve all the success.
