Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, Suzy Bogguss, is one of country music’s enduring treasures. In the 1990s, Bogguss sold 4 million records with radio hits like “Outbound Plane,” “Someday Soon,” “Letting Go,” and “Drive South.” In the midst of her country popularity she took time off for projects like the duets album with the legendary Chet Atkins, an album of modern swing music with Ray Benson of Asleep At The Wheel, and an album of original music landed her at number 4 on the jazz charts. Her folk music roots show through in her frequent appearances on Public Radio’s, “A Prairie Home Companion,” and in her critically acclaimed album and book project from 2011, “American Folk Songbook.” In 2014, she released Lucky, a collection of songs written by Merle Haggard and interpreted through Suzy’s crystal vocals from the female point of view. Her latest offering, Aces Redux, is a re-recording of her platinum-selling album Aces produced by Suzy with fresh arrangements and her sparkling vocals Recent highlights for Bogguss include touring this year with the “Chicks With Hits” show with Terri Clark and Pam Tillis, she recently recorded with Tommy Emmanuel, and one of Bogguss’ Christmas songs was recorded by Blake Shelton for his latest holiday album.
