The Innocent Age is the seventh album by American singer/songwriter Dan Fogelberg, released in 1981 (see 1981 in music). It was also one of his most successful albums; three of his four Top 10 singles on the Billboard pop chart ("Hard to Say" (#7), "Same Old Lang Syne" (#9), and "Leader of the Band" (#9)) were from this album, as well as another Top 20 single in "Run for the Roses" (#18). All four also reached the Top 10 on the Billboard adult contemporary chart, with "Leader of the Band" reaching Number 1 on that chart. The album also included his song "Times Like These" from the 1980 "Urban Cowboy" Soundtrack . "The Innocent Age" drew its inspiration from Thomas Wolfe's major novel Of Time and the River. Fogelberg captured on this album Wolfe's protagonist's search for meaning, for self, and the inexorable passage of time.
