publish date: 2017-10-12
'A Tribute to Dan Fogelberg' is out Nov. 17 via BMG and also features Garth Brooks, Eagles, Zac Brown and more.
“Longer” is one of Dan Fogelberg’s most enduring love songs. The unabashedly sentimental ballad, which describes a devotion that exists “longer than there have been fishes in the ocean,” spent two weeks at No. 2 on ’s Hot 100 chart in March 1980.
For the upcoming collection A Tribute to Dan Fogelberg, husband and wife Vince Gill and Amy Grant turn it into sweet, unadorned duet, trading off verses and sharing lovely harmonies.
The long-gestating album comes out Nov. 17 via BMG and also features Garth Brooks, Eagles, Zac Brown, Train, Michael McDonald and Donna Summer, among others, performing songs from Fogelberg’s beloved catalog. The singer/songwriter died of prostate cancer in December 2007 at 56.
