Blue Sky Riders are set to soar with the release of their highly anticipated full-length debut, Finally Home, in stores and available via digital retailers on January 22, 2013. The New York Times says, “The three songwriters have found an unusually comfortable fit.

A veritable who's who of music royalty, the group counts the iconic Kenny Loggins, Nashville songwriter Georgia Middleman (who has penned songs for Keith Urban, Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney & Reba McEntire amongst others) and award-winning songwriter Gary Burr (Conway Twitty, Wynona Judd) within its ranks.

The creative spark that ignited Blue Sky Riders was struck when Loggins and Burr began working on songs together. Their chemistry inspired them both to "get back on the horse" and start a new band. Loggins welcomed the challenge but wanted to add a third female voice. Burr, whose accolades include being named "Songwriter of the Year" by ASCAP, Billboard and NSAI, suggested Middleman. She quickly accepted their invitation and Blue Sky Riders were born.

The anxiously awaited debut album Finally Home follows up the 2011 fan favorite EP, Live At The Rutledge, which introduced the world to their exceptional collaborative songwriting and unique sound. Driven by three-part harmonies and sincere, soulful delivery, each of these veterans sings lead as well, separating Blue Sky Riders from not only anything they've respectively done, but anything else out there. Over the course of the record, the trio merges rock, pop, and country into an irresistible collection of 15 songs. Select singles from Finally Home are currently available for purchase on iTunes and and the Live At The Rutledge EP is also available digitally.

'Dream' is the first song that the band has played to introduce audiences to the upcoming album Finally Home, to be followed by the song 'Feelin’ Brave' which Blue Sky Riders have recently launched in conjunction with their 'Portraits Of Bravery,' social media campaign. 'Portraits Of Bravery' was created in support of our veterans and their families as they re-adjust to their domestic life in the United States.

In conjunction with the campaign, the band has invited fans to show their support for the men and women of the U.S. Military by sharing a meaningful image emblematic of bravery to them – a 'Portrait Of Bravery' from their own lives. For each photo that is uploaded, a donation will be made to Operation: Soldier At Ease. Each participating fan will also receive an exclusive digital copy of the Blue Sky Riders single 'Feelin’ Brave.' Fans may either upload photos from Instragram and use the hashtag #bravetogether or upload pictures from their computer directly to Blue Sky Riders Facebook or website. All of the pictures are displayed in a web mural on the band’s website and Facebook.

Blue Sky Riders
are hot off a fourteen-date tour that included an electrifying five-night stint at New York's famous Feinstein's At Loews Regency and sold out venues across the country. Expect more touring from them soon to coincide with the release of Finally Home. Are you ready to take flight with Blue Sky Riders?
