With a career that spans four decades and includes 12 platinum albums to go along with a pair of Grammy awards, it's safe to say that Kenny Loggins has pretty much done it all. But at age 66, Loggins still shows no signs of slowing down.
The ever youthful Loggins first found success in the early 1970s as part of the pop-rock duo, Loggins and Messina with Jim Messina. It was a partnership that sold millions of records and yielded hits like "Danny's Song" and "Your Mama Don't Dance."
Loggins’ greatest success though came as a solo artist during the 1980s. He started the decade out by winning Grammys for Song and Record of the Year for "What A Fool Believes", a No. 1 song he wrote with then Doobie Brother Michael McDonald. Loggins would follow up that achievement by penning songs for two hugely successful movie soundtracks: "I'm Alright" from Caddyshack and "Footloose" from the 1984 Kevin Bacon blockbuster . Other songs that have earned Loggins praise include "Danger Zone" from the movie, "Top Gun" as well as "Don't Fight It," "Meet Me Halfway," and "Forever."
In the years since, Loggins has continued to write, record and tour. His performance on the 1996 song, "For The First Time" reached #1 on the adult contemporary chart and was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song.
Fans can expect a healthy dose of those hits and more when the iconic Kenny Loggins performs at Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA on Saturday, Nov. 8.
Penn's Peak is an intimate concert venue nestled within the mountains of Northeastern, Pennsylvania. Its panoramic views combined with an ideal acoustic environment and spacious interior make for a truly unique concert experience.
In addition to his solo career and joining Messina on occasional Loggins and Messina reunion tours, Loggins continues to work with his other side project, Blue Sky Riders and is in the process of writing a children’s book.
Kenny Loggins' appearance at Penn's Peak will be a multi-generational treat for fans of all ages. The show starts at 8 p.m.
