I wouldn't list Keaggy exclusively with Olson.  He's endorsed many different acoustic guitar brands over the years.

Some I can think of right off the top of my head:

Langejans 

Charis

I think I've seen more but those two stick in my head because they are both luthiers from Michigan, my former home state.

Agreed, not exclusively Olson, however naturally every builder who's anybody (or aspiring to be) offered him guitars Including Bill Wise (Charis) - he even recorded a Taylor 514CE on one of the later Wood & Steel discs, but he still uses the Olsons, and certainly those are the guitars I associate him with.
 
I think more than anyone else he and James Taylor have given Jim his "name" in the business.

And for Voyage Air travel guitars and I'm sure for many more.

Just about every famous Christian guitarist is sponsored with a McPhersons, Phil is no exception. (those are terrific sounding instruments btw)
For me the artist that comes up at the mention of Olson is Phil, and vice versa.

I guess loyalty can mean different things to different people.  I was taking a dictionary definition of it.
