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.
Let your voice be heard!
