Kenny Loggins
GET UPDATES FROM Kenny Loggins
 
Kenny Loggins is a singer-songwriter who has been recording and performing for four straight decades. Twelve of his albums have gone platinum and beyond, and he is a two-time Grammy winner.

Loggins was born in Everett, Washington, and moved to the Los Angeles area as a young boy. After a short stint as a guitarist for The Electric Prunes, he penned four songs on the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s 1970 album "Uncle Charlie and His Dog Teddy," among them the classic "House at Pooh Corner."

Around this same time, Loggins caught the attention of former Buffalo Springfield producer and Poco member Jim Messina, then working as staff producer at CBS. Originally, Loggins set out to record his solo debut with Messina behind the boards as his producer. As work progressed, Messina’s involvement increased and the album subsequently emerged in 1972 as Kenny Loggins with Jim Messina “Sittin’ In.” The album quickly established this accidental duo as one of significant recording and touring acts of the 1970s.

When Loggins & Messina split up in 1976, Loggins launched a solo career that includes such million-selling albums as “Celebrate Me Home,” “Nightwatch,” and “Keep The Fire.” In 1979, Loggins won a Grammy for Song of The Year for “What A Fool Believes” with Michael McDonald of the Doobie Brothers, and in 1980 the Best Male Pop Vocal Grammy for “This Is It.” In the 1980s, Loggins’ hits included "I'm Alright" (from the film "Caddyshack"), "Footloose" (from the film "Footloose") and "Danger Zone" (from "Top Gun"). Between 1985 and 2003, Loggins recorded five albums that were introspective and deeply personal, as well as a Christmas album and two CDs for children, one of which, "Return to Pooh Corner," has sold well over two million copies.

In 2005, Kenny Loggins reunited with his former partner, Jim Messina, in the successful "Sittin’ In Again" tour; they reunited again in 2009. In 2011, Loggins teamed up with Gary Burr and Georgia Middleman to launch Blue Sky Riders. The band is releasing its first album in 2012.

"So let me get this right," said the Boston Globe reporter sitting in my hotel room as he sipped his Arnold-Palmer-and-Red-Bull. "You're 64, and you're starting a new band? Isn't that something 18-year-olds do?"

"Hell," I replied, "that's not all. I'm also starting a new record company. And a new...
