Blue Sky Riders is a musical trio consisting of singer-songwriters Kenny Loggins, Georgia Middleman and Gary Burr. Burr and Middleman were engaged to be married at the time of the group's foundation.[1] The band released their debut album, Finally Home, on their own record label, 3Dream Records, on January 29, 2013.[2][3] AllMusic called the record "a true partnership" between the participants, and described it as "the sound of old pros playing for the love of it once again".[4]

Following a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign in 2014,[5] the band was able to produce their second album Why Not (released in 2015). A behind-the-scenes docuseries, called All Access Pass, chronicles the songwriting and making of the new record on the band's website.[6]
