Blue Sky Riders are the pop vocal trio conceived by platinum-selling musician Kenny Loggins, Nashville songwriter Georgia Middleman (Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Reba McEntire) and singer/songwriter Gary Burr (member of The Nashville Music Hall of Fame and named #1 Songwriter of the Year by ASCAP, Billboard and NSAI with 13 #1 hit credits).

During the upcoming show, the trio will be performing songs from their upcoming self-titled debut album, Finally Home, scheduled for release on Jan. 22. Select singles from the album are digitally available along with the band’s Live At The Rutledge EP, which is currently available for purchase on iTunes.
