The Eagles, Garth Brooks, Train, More on Deck for Dan Fogelberg Tribute Album

The Eagles, Garth Brooks, Train, Jimmy Buffett, and Zac Brown are among the artists who will pay tribute to Dan Fogelberg, with an album slated to be released through BMG on Nov. 17 . The compilation was produced by Dan’s wife, Jean Fogelberg; longtime friend Norbert Putnam; and manager Irving Azoff; along with Chuck Morris.

Fogelberg, who saw his biggest hits in the early 1980s — among them: “Longer,” “Leader of the Band,” and “Same Old Lang Syne” — died in December 2007 at the age of 56.

Said Brooks in an announcement of “A Tribute to Dan Fogelberg”: “A good thing never dies and that ‘good thing’ is Dan’s music. As for me, my life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man. That man is Dan Fogelberg, and he will live forever in those of us who have let his gift bring so much light to our paths.”

Michael McDonald recalled how he first heard Fogelberg’s music, from Azoff. “While visiting him in the early 70’s, he played me some demos of songs by a young kid from Peoria, Illinois; a part of the country were both from,” said McDonald. “I was immediately transported to a musical place that I would look forward to returning to time and again over the years with each new release of a Dan Fogelberg album. So proud to be part of this project.”

Added Train’s Pat Monahan: “Dan was one of the writers that influenced what I try to do, connect to people emotionally. He did it in a way that seemed effortless. Not many people get that gift. Dan did. Here’s to great influence on music and an inspiration to the future.”
