The creative spark that evolved into Blue Sky Riders was first struck in 2008 when Kenny Loggins, one of the premiere voices in modern popular music, joined forces with Gary Burr, one of Nashville’s most accomplished writers. “When we sang together, we sounded like brothers,” said Loggins. “The last time I experienced that kind of blend was with Jimmy Messina in 1971.” They decided on the spot to form a band, but wanted to add a third, female voice. Burr recruited singer/songwriter Georgia Middleman, who has worked with and written hits for Keith Urban, Faith Hill and Martina McBride. Blue Sky Riders was born with a unique blend of three-part harmonies, and the three consummate performers taking turns as lead singer. The Riders released their debut album, “Finally Home,” in January.
