Singer/songwriter/legend Kenny Loggins has crafted a career that has spanned decades and enamored millions around the world, and he has plenty of stories to tell regarding his journey along the way.

Loggins will do just that this coming summer with an official new memoir, Still Alright, which will be published via Hachette Books. Its title, of course, is a reference to one of his biggest, most enduring hits, “I’m Alright,” the theme from Caddyshack:

Detailed on Wednesday, the book has a publishing date of June 14 and looks to include a wealth of anecdotes and lessons learned from Loggins’ life in entertainment, which included a masterful run of soundtrack-related standouts in the 1980s with mega-hit films like Top Gun, Caddyshack and Footloose.

Per a news release:

In STILL ALRIGHT, Kenny Loggins gives fans a candid and entertaining perspective on his life and career as one of the most noteworthy musicians of the 1970s and ’80s. He provides an abundance of compelling, insightful, and terrifically amusing behind-the-scenes tales. Loggins draws readers back to the musical eras they’ve loved, as well as addressing the challenges and obstacles of his life and work—including two marriages that ended in divorce; a difficult but motivating relationship with the older brother for which “Danny’s Song” is named; struggles with his addiction to benzodiazepines; and the revelations of turning seventy and looking back at everything that has shaped his music—and coming to terms with his rock-star persona and his true self.

“Writing this book and piecing together the moments of my life has been a really eye-opening experience for me,” says Loggins. “It’s almost like therapy, to get to look at how honest I can be. How honest can I be about my motivations, my reactions to certain relationships and circumstances, what did I learn, and how did it affect my music.”

Added Hachette Books publisher Mary Ann Naples: “We’re thrilled by this opportunity to publish with a wonderful artist who has appealed to so many music fans across genres and generations, and who is ready to tell his story with wisdom, humor, and heart.”
