Suzy Bogguss is country music royalty, a singer with an instantly recognizable, crystal clear voice that took songs like “Aces,” “Drive South,” “Someday Soon,” “Outbound Plane” and “Letting Go” to the top of the country music charts. Along the way she won raves from critics and peers alike, winning a Grammy in 2005 for Traditional Folk Album, the Country Music Association’s Horizon Award in 1992 and album of the Year Award in 1994.
2007’s Billboard Jazz Chart topping Sweet Danger, the universally praised album, Swing recorded in 2003 with Ray Benson of Asleep At The Wheel and Simpatico, her beloved collaboration with Chet Atkins showed the world Bogguss was willing to both embrace tradition while continuing to grow and challenge herself as an artist. However, it is an appreciation for tradition that really shines through on her most recent release, American Folk Songbook. The album is filled with songs that are the very fabric of American musical history and Bogguss reclaims this history and revives it with a fresh and beautiful take on classics like “Shenandoah,” “Wayfaring Stranger,” “Ol’ Dan Tucker,” “Beautiful Dreamer” and “Red River Valley.”
