Loggins has left his musical imprint on “the soundtrack of our lives.” Beginning his career as a member of the powerhouse American rock-pop duo, Loggins and Messina, with Jimmy Messina, the pair achieved massive success in the early ‘70s with their well-known songs “Danny’s Song,” “House at Pooh Corner,” and “Your Mama Don’t Dance.” After selling more than 16 million records and becoming one of the leading musical duos of the decade, Loggins and Messina broke up in 1976. Loggins would continue on to launch a historical solo career that has lasted more than four decades.
The Guild of Music Supervisors recently honored the legendary singer, songwriter and guitarist with the organization’s first-ever Icon Award on Feb. 1, 2018 for his outstanding achievements in film, television, and soundtracks. Loggins’ early soundtrack contributions date back to the film A Star Is Born in 1976. Through the ‘80s and ‘90s, he became known as "The Soundtrack King." His contributions include some of the film industry’s most iconic soundtracks, including Caddyshack’s "I'm Alright," Top Gun’s “Danger Zone,” and Footloose’s self-titled theme “Footloose.” From Barbra Streisand’s "I Believe in Love" to Stevie Nicks’ "Whenever I Call You Friend,” to “What a Fool Believes" with Michael McDonald (earning Loggins and McDonald the 1980 GRAMMY for “Song of the Year”), Loggins has staked his claim as a musical legend.
With 12 platinum albums, a pair of GRAMMYs, and hits on almost all of the Billboard charts, Kenny Loggins moves forward in 2018 doing what he loves doing best: being a singer-songwriter, philanthropist and author. The recent release of his latest children’s project, the book Footloose, inspired by his 1985 Oscar® nominated and GRAMMY Award-winning “Song of the Year,” has become the first of a new series of children’s books. In addition, Loggins is currently developing a children’s entertainment and branding company based on his inspired works, and also looks forward to a new PBS Soundstage special set to air this fall.
