Blue Sky Riders, the pop vocal trio created by musician Kenny Loggins, Nashville’s own Georgia Middleman (who has penned songs for Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney & Reba McEntire) and Country Music 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 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.

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.

Tickets for the tour can be purchased by going to the band’s website – www.blueskyridersband.com
