Dan Fogelberg's latest album, "The Wild Places," hasn't exactly torn up the charts, but the veteran singer-songwriter has received some airplay from adult-contemporary radio stations -- not surprising since that's where he figures the bulk of his longtime fans are these days.
"It feels like the kind of album I always wanted to make," says Mr. Fogelberg, 39.
"To me, it has the same kind of feel as 'Netherlands,' which was a highlight of my career and one I know a lot of the people who listen to me list as a favorite.
"It took a while for this one to germinate and to be written and recorded," he explains. "I had done 'High Country Snows' [a bluegrass album] and [the more rock-oriented] 'Exiles,' and this was something I wanted to do for a long time.
