The only reason EVERY SONG written and EVERY ALBUM ;produced by Dave Loggins is not a phenomenal hit, is that they have not been heard...or circulated...One Way Ticket to Paradise,, and Moving to the Country are both absolutely great, albums and songs. Every song on the album is an absolute favorite.

Some of the country artist of today should put some of those songs back out. I had every album growing up and still play his stuff now. Had an oppurtunity to see him in Bristol, Tenn with about 200-300 people in a theatre, he performed live and his mother and family was there. It was 12 yrs ago. Just him and a guitar, it was incredible! Wish I could see him live again even if it was one song!!!!!!

Why isn't Dave being sought after to perform? Never have understood that.

Just wondering. Are you the same Lisa Nemzo who recorded "Staying With It" with the band, Firefall? If so, that was a great song by one of my favorite 70's bands.

We played "Pieces of April" at our wedding. It is our song. I love it and all of his other songs! I would love to write him or see him in person or concert. He should re-release "Pieces of April". I still have faith it could be a number 1 hit!

I've been listening to Dave for forty years. Why doesn't this guy ever tour and where does he live? All of his music is outstanding. It's time for his music to be promoted again - it's timeless.

I grew up listening to Dave Loggins as my dad was a fan. Music being the connector it is, I play him often, sharing moments with my dad who has been gone 8 years. I can listen to Apprentice over and over (am rightnow). Thank you Dave Loggins for providing moments with my lost best friend.

I loved his music from the first time i've heard it. The albums One way ticket to paradise and Counry suite are by far my favorite albums. In my oppinion Goodbey Eyes is one of the most beautifull love songs ever written and sung!!

Does Dave Loggins still play anywhere from time to time? I'd love to hear him live.

Dave Loggins, Country Suite, is one of the most beautiful collections of songs I have ever heard. I found the CD (or my sister did) a few years ago, so I have been able to enjoy it all over again. (I also have album and cassette of same). No one has a voice like he does. Wish I could have seen him sing "The Weatherman" just once.

An album jacket note on "Apprentice in a Musical Workshop" thanks the band for ONE TAKE on "Sunset Woman." That song is so beautiful, imagine the feeling going on among the musicians as it came out so beautifully and continued to the end without a note or a line that any of them felt could be improved upon.

I discovered Dave when his vanguard album was releases. It had a great song called Sister Mary Ryan on it that was haunting, but my favorite of his cd's is One Way Ticket....and that song is my favorite. I also loved his duet with Anne Murray.

I Love this song. I only wish it had been Austin and not Boston. Luv that town! Can we have a do-over. Please!

A concert at the Ryman Auditorium or downtown Franklin TN restored theater would be perfect venues to feature David Loggins talent and appreciation we have for his gifts as a singer and author of numerous hits we all enjoy! The evening event of David and Friends with other singer/songwriter guests would make for a sell-out show.
Let your voice be heard!
