Danny Gokey releases country album Tuesday

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- "American Idol" finalist and Milwaukee native Danny Gokey is releasing his first album.

The country music album is called "My Best Days" and it hits stores Tuesday.

The 29-year-old former church music director finished in the final three on the popular singing show. He returns to the show on Thursday to perform his single "My Best Days Are Ahead of Me."

Danny credits his late wife, Sophia, with the inspiration to go on the show. He started his charity, Sophia's Heart Foundation, in her memory.
