American singer/songwriter Dan Fogelberg was an artists' artist. He made music that other musicians fell in love with and this latest release proves that, as some of the biggest names in country/pop music gathered together pay tribute to Fogelberg. The new 14-song release titled "A Tribute To Dan Fogelberg" was released on November 17th through BMG and follows the singer's induction into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame, which took place back in August.
The set kicks off with Garth Brooks injecting a blast of energy into a rocking version of "Phoenix" and then Train delivers a stellar version of the seasonal classic "Same Old Lang Syne." In between we get the inspiration of "Nether Lands" from Donna Summer and Vince Gill teams up with Amy Grant for an emotional delivery of Fogelberg's hit single "Longer." Legendary singer, Dobie Gray lends his style to "Don't Lose Heart" and The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, along with Richie Furay perform the country ballad, "Run For The Roses." This new tribute closes with fellow singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffet's folk version of "There's A Place In The World For A Gambler" and a live version of the Zac Brown Band delivering an acoustic rendition of "Leader Of The Band" as a tribute to his Zac's father.
