Dave Loggins

American singer and songwriter Dave Loggins was born November 10, 1947 in Mountain City, Tennessee. A second cousin to pop star Kenny Loggins, Dave Loggins launched his solo career with 1972’s Personal Belongings, establishing his country-tinged pop sound. His breakthrough came with 1974’s Apprentice (In a Musical Workshop), which climbed to number 53 on the album chart thanks to the single “Please Come to Boston”, a number 5 pop hit in the U.S. and Canada that topped the Easy Listening chart. He released three more albums during the decade that failed to make a splash, ending his career as a solo recording artist. However, he maintained a successful career as a songwriter scoring hit songs for a variety of artists including Juice Newton (“You Make Me Want To Make You Mine”), Kenny Rogers (“Morning Desire”), and Three Dog Night (“Pieces of April”). He scored a number 1 on the country chart in 1984 with “Nobody Loves Me Like You Do”, a duet with Anne Murray. He wrote and sang on a piece that would be the theme of The Masters golf tournament for many years. In 1995 he was honored with induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
