Soft rock singer/songwriter, guitarist, pianist, and producer Kenny Loggins had a consistent string of hits in the 1970s, '80s, and '90s. After playing in several bands in the late '60s and honing his songwriting chops as a staff songwriter at Wingate Music, Loggins rose to prominence with Loggins & Messina, a duo with fellow singer/songwriter Jim Messina. The two were together from 1972 to 1976, and released a string of successful albums. Loggins' first solo album, Celebrate Me Home, was released in 1977, and included the hit "I Believe in Love." He enjoyed even more success in the '80s, scoring hits with songs cut for movie soundtracks such as "I'm Alright" (Caddyshack), "Footloose" (Footloose), and "Danger Zone" (Top Gun). Throughout the '90s and 2000s, Loggins continued to produce albums, and in the 2000s he also reunited with Messina for a tour.
