Biography

Best known for his 1974 soft rock hit "Please Come to Boston," Dave Loggins was born November, 10, 1947 in Mountain City, Tennessee. The second cousin of Kenny Loggins, Dave released his debut album, Personal Belongings, in 1972 via Vanguard. He found success in 1974 with the release of his sophomore outing, the Epic-issued Apprentice (In a Musical Workshop), which included the aforementioned "Please Come to Boston." The LP peaked at number 53 on the Billboard Top Albums chart, and the single cracked the Top Ten -- it hit number one on the easy listening charts -- but it would be Loggins' only mainstream hit. Subsequent albums Country Suite (1976), One Way Ticket to Paradise (1977), and David Loggins (1979) failed to generate much heat, but Loggins proved himself to be natural pop-smith, writing material for the likes of Tanya Tucker, Wynonna Judd, Alabama, Toby Keith, Don Williams, and Restless Heart, and even landing a pair of number one hits for Kenny Rogers ("Morning Desire") and Juice Newton ("You Make Me Want to Make You Mine"). ~ James Christopher Monger
