Blue Sky Riders Embark on First National Tour
Posted on August 26, 2012
Blue Sky Riders (Kenny Loggins, Georgia Middleman, Gary Burr) will perform songs from their upcoming self-titled albumBLUE SKY RIDERS
Blue Sky Riders, the pop vocal trio conceived by legendary musician Kenny Loggins, Nashville's own Georgia Middleman (who has penned songs for Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney & Reba McEntire) and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame writer Gary Burr, will headline their first national tour this fall. They spent the summer opening for Kenny Loggins on his tour where they received an overwhelmingly positive response. The Orange County Register noted, " ...the trio's marvelous harmonies and easy rapport."
The 14 city tour, which kicks off September 13th in Kent, OH, includes 5 nights at New York City's famed Feinstein's at Loew's Regency and will end October 1st in State College, PA. The trio will be performing songs from their upcoming self-titled debut album, Blue Sky Riders, scheduled to be released on January 22, 2013.
Select singles from the album will be available in September 2012. The band's Live At The Rutledge EP is currently available for purchase on iTunes.
The creative spark that eventually evolved into Blue Sky Riders was struck when veteran singer/songwriters Kenny Loggins and Gary Burr began working on songs together. Their chemistry as songwriters and their work together inspired them both to want to go another round with the music industry. Loggins, looking for a creative step forward in his musical career, decided to take on the challenge to form a new band but wanted to add a third, female voice. Burr, who has been named Songwriter of the Year by ASCAP, Billboard and NSAI and has worked with artists such as Juice Newton, Conway Twitty and Wynonna Judd, suggested singer/songwriter Georgia Middleman, who has worked with Keith Urban, Faith Hill and Martina McBride among others.
Georgia accepted Gary and Kenny's invitation to join them in this new venture, and Blue Sky Riders was born.
