Kenny Loggins may give Blue Sky Riders star power but he doesn't overwhelm the trio he formed with Nashville-based singer/songwriters Gary Burr and Georgia Middleman in the early years of the 2010s. Loggins collaborated with Burr -- a professional songwriter who began his career as the lead singer for Pure Prairie League during the mid-'80s -- on the former's 2008 album How About Now, an experience that went so well, Loggins decided to form an official partnership with the songwriter. Burr brought in Middleman, an accomplished songwriter (she wrote Keith Urban's hit "I'm In") who also happened to be his fiancé, and the trio tested the waters opening for Loggins himself in 2011, releasing a live EP called Live at the Rutledge later that year. Soon they headlined their own club tour and set about recording a full-length debut. That album, Finally Home, appeared in January 2013. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
