ABOUT THE MUSIC
 

History will shine on Dan Fogelberg as one of the great songwriters of our time, a remarkable storyteller, an American treasure. An authentic artist, Dan crafted honest, passionate songs that are pure reflections of how he lived his life. He left us far too soon but his phenomenal body of work continues to touch the lives of millions. He was an incredible blessing in my life, and it was an honor to call him friend. For his brotherly encouragement, his support of my art, and his contributions to my recordings, I am forever grateful. I hope you enjoy listening to this celebration of his spirit as much as I enjoyed making it.
