Dave Loggins is a rather reclusive genius. I've kept in touch with my friend through the years, but have always respected his privacy, so I can't tell you how thrilled I was that he wanted to chat with me about songwriting for my podcast! 

It would take far too much space to list the artists who’ve cut Dave Loggins songs. Known as the bridge buster by fellow writers, he’s mostly referred to by Nashville’s music row as just ‘Loggins’. Some of my fondest career highs have been singing background vocals on his demos through the years. Many of those songs were cut by other major artists and became huge chart-toppers, but I’ll tell you a secret: If you hear Loggins sing the demo he produced, you really don’t want to hear any other version, no matter how big a hit it was. 

CMA songwriter of the year, inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame,  #1 smash hit artist himself, CMA Duo Award winner with Anne Murray, nominated multiple times for Grammy Awards and acknowledged by John Lennon - those are some of the career accolades he’s received. But the story of his life is woven through with threads of musical, lyrical and vocal influence on others, including yours truly. So grab a warm cup of your favorite,  sit back and relax as you listen to these amazing stories.
