Out now: 'A Tribute to Dan Fogelberg'

'A Tribute to Dan Fogelberg' is out today. Produced by Dan’s wife, Jean Fogelberg; Norbert Putnam; his lifelong friend and manager, Irving Azoff; and Chuck Morris, the homage to multi-platinum, singer/songwriter Dan Fogelberg is released worldwide through BMG.

The album contains recreations of some of Dan’s biggest hits, such as the Top 10 hits, including “Longer,” "Leader of the Band,” and “Same Old Lang Syne.” Songs from his multi-platinum albums are also featured, such as “Phoenix,” “Nether Lands,” and “Part of the Plan.” A complete track listing can be found below.

In August 2017, Dan Fogelberg was inducted into the Colorado Music Hall Of Fame, along with Joe Walsh and Barnstorm and James Guercio of Caribou Ranch, during “The Rocky Mountain Way” event at the Fiddlers Green near Denver. The tribute concert featured Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Amy Grant, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band with Richie Furay, Fools Gold & others performing selections from Dan Fogelberg’s illustrious career to a sold-out crowd of nearly 20,000 fans.

Dan Fogelberg, one of the most popular artists of the '70s and '80s, was a key component of the golden age of the singer/songwriter. His second album, the 1974 Joe Walsh-produced Souvenirs, hit the top 20 and led Dan into a three-decade run that would include 11 platinum and two gold albums.

His best- known songs include “Longer”, a ballad that became a wedding ceremony standard; “Leader of the Band,” a tribute to his bandleader father, Lawrence Fogelberg; “Run For The Roses”, the unofficial theme of the Kentucky Derby; and the seasonal staple “Same Old Lang Syne.” Dan Fogelberg died of prostate cancer in 2007.
