One of the most popular adult contemporary singers is coming to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, when Kenny Loggins performs on Feb 17.
Tickets start at $45 and go on sale Jan. 6.
Loggins’ career began in 1971, when he partnered with former Buffalo Springfield guitarist Jim Messina. In seven years, the duo released nine albums, featuring such hits as “Angry Eyes,” “Danny’s Song,” “House at Pooh Corner” and “Your Mama Don’t Dance.” The two reunited with a studio album, a tour and a live album in 2005.
After ending his run with Messina, Loggins’ career accelerated as a solo performer, with much of his success coming on soundtrack work throughout the ‘80s. To date, Loggins has released 13 solo studio albums, with four reaching platinum status and three earning gold status.
In his first three years as a solo performer, Loggins charted five songs, including a duet with Stevie Nicks, “Whenever I Call You Friend,” which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100. He also won a Grammy for Song of the Year in 1979 for “What a Fool Believes” and, in 1980, the Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal for “This is It.”
In 1980, Loggins recorded a trio of songs for the soundtrack to “Caddyshack,” including “I’m Alright,” “Mr. Night” and “Lead the Way.” “I’m Alright,” which served as the film’s theme song, peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Loggins’ success on the Caddyshack soundtrack earned him more soundtrack work, including “Footloose,” “Top Gun” and “Over the Top.” Tracks include “Footloose,” which became his first No. 1 smash, and the iconic “Top Gun” track, “Danger Zone,” which peaked at No. 2 in 1986. In 1997, Loggins earned an Oscar nomination for the “One Fine Day” song “For the First Time,” which also peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart.
