His early songwriting compositions were recorded with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in 1970, which led to seven albums, performing as the group Loggins and Messina from 1972 to 1977. As a solo artist, Loggins experienced a string of soundtrack successes, including an Academy Award nomination for “Footloose” in 1984. His early soundtrack contributions date back to the film A Star Is Born in 1976, and for much of the 1980s and 1990s, he was known as “The Soundtrack King”.

Kenneth Clark “Kenny” Loggins (born January 7, 1948) is an American singer and songwriter. He is known for soft rock music beginning during the 1970s, and later for writing and performing for movie soundtracks in the 1980s. Originally a part of the duo Loggins and Messina, he became a solo artist and has written songs for other artists.
Jim Messina, formerly of Poco and Buffalo Springfield, was working as an independent record producer for Columbia Records in 1970 when he was introduced to Kenny Loggins, then a little-known singer/songwriter who was signed to ABC-Dunhill.
During 1977, Loggins produced his first solo album, Celebrate Me Home, which included the successful song “I Believe In Love”, sung originally by Barbra Streisand in A Star Is Born. Nightwatch, a popular album released during 1978, included the hit song, “Whenever I Call You Friend”, a duet with Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac, though co-written with Melissa Manchester. He followed it in 1979 with Keep the Fire.
Of the seven albums released by Loggins & Messina from 1971–1976, two were platinum and five were gold. Since going solo, Loggins has released 13 albums, three of which were certified gold (500,000 shipped), and four became platinum (1 million shipped). – Wikipedia
