An Evening with GRAMMY Award Winner Suzy Bogguss
Grammy award-winning and Platinum selling artist Suzy Bogguss is making her first ever appearance to the Marion Cultural & Civic Center. Suzy Bogguss is one of the most acclaimed female country singers of the late ’80s and ’90s, who was able to balance country tradition with a contemporary mainstream sensibility, thereby satisfying both audiences and critics.
Suzy is from Aledo, Illinois and began singing in her church choir at age five. Encouraged by her parents, she learned piano and drums as a child, and took up guitar as a teenager.
During the creative explosion that was country music in the 1990s Suzy Bogguss sold 4 million plus records with sparkling radio hits like “Outbound Plane”, “Someday Soon”, “Letting Go” and “Drive South”.
One of the most diverse female artists in country music, she is a CMA, ACM, and ASCAP Award Winner. She has recorded a duets album with the legendary Chet Atkins, made an album of modern swing music with Ray Benson of Asleep At The Wheel, and landed on the jazz charts with an original album Sweet Danger. In 2004 she became a GRAMMY winner to her list of accolades for her work on Beautiful Dreamer: The Songs of Stephen Foster, 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 recent offering, Aces Redux, is a re-recording of her platinum selling album Aces produced by Suzy with fresh arrangements and her signature effortless vocals. So yes, you can call her a country singer if you want, but really that’s just the beginning.
Since 2017, Suzy has also been touring as one of three “Chicks With Hits”, a show that also features Pam Tillis and Terri Clark.
