(Nashville, TN) February 28 – Awakening Events announced today that 3X Grammy® Nominee Danny Gokey will bring his “ Better Than I Found It” tour to 18 cities this spring. Also featuring Christian radio hitmakers Unspoken and The Young Escape, the tour will kick off on April 16, in Augusta, GA and will feature stops in Springfield, MO, Woodbridge, VA, and more, before concluding on May 17 in Akron, OH. The tour is sponsored by Food for the Hungry, K-LOVE Radio, and Altrua HealthShare.

“This tour and the theme behind it is something I’ve been dreaming about and praying into for a long time,” said Gokey. “It’s inspired by one of my song’s lyrics, and something about it keeps resonating with me. When I came off of American Idol, in my exit interview, they asked me what I saw for my future in music. At the time, I didn’t even know what I was really saying, but I said I saw my music as a movement. This phrase, ‘Better Than I Found It’, encapsulates what I want that movement to be. The tour is just the start of activating people to really SEE the world around them and get involved in making it better.”

Tickets for all shows on the tour are on sale now at www.dannygokey.com and www.awakeningevents.com. Additionally, from now until March 17, fans that purchase early can save 20% on tickets to the tour via the Awakening Events Fan & Listener Appreciation Sale. The 20% off promotion runs through 11:59 PM local time on 3/17/20.

“We’ve been honored to work with Danny on many events throughout the years, and we’re very excited about this tour,” said Curtis Pinkerton, Director of Marketing at Awakening Events. “The concept behind the Better Than I Found It Tour is a powerful one, and we cannot wait to see it come to life on stage. Danny is an amazing talent – combine that with Unspoken and The Young Escape and you have what is sure to be one of the most exciting tours of the spring.”

Gokey said, “I’ve had the privilege of getting to meet a lot of people who are doing amazing things to foster change and I’m looking forward to telling those stories on this tour, but also being able to leave a deposit of something in each city that we visit as we go.” Gokey shared, “It’s going to be an entertaining night of music that brings hope, inspires and motivates!”
