Danny Wayland Seals (February 8, 1948 – March 25, 2009) was an American musician. In the 1970s, he was the "England Dan" half of the soft rock duo England Dan and John Ford Coley, who are best known for their hit single "I’d Really Love to See You Tonight". He was also the younger brother of Jim Seals (from the duo Seals & Crofts).
After departing the duo, Seals began a solo career in country music. In his solo career, he released sixteen studio albums and charted more than twenty singles on the country charts. Eleven of his singles reached Number One: "Meet Me in Montana" (with Marie Osmond), "Bop" (also a #42 pop hit), "Everything That Glitters (Is Not Gold)", "You Still Move Me", "I Will Be There", "Three Time Loser", "One Friend", "Addicted", "Big Wheels in the Moonlight", "Love on Arrival", and a cover of Sam Cooke’s "Good Times". Four more of Seals’ singles also reached Top Ten on the country charts.
