My Conversation With Kenny Loggins

Monday night on PBS, I sit down with two-time Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum singer/songwriter Kenny Loggins, who stops by to talk about his new children's CD and picture book, Frosty the Snow Man. Nearly five decades into his career, which has yielded such hit songs as This Is It, Footloose, and the perennial holiday favorite Celebrate Me Home, Loggins is now making music with Blue Sky Riders, his country rock band.

In the clip below, Loggins shares how he was summarily dropped from Columbia Records at the age of 50.
