Grammy Award-winning and Platinum-selling artist Suzy Bogguss is a big country star. She has one of the finest voices to grace the stage in a very long time! Her "20 Greatest Hits" and nine albums on Capitol Records Nashville are a testament to that claim! Suzy is an artist who is constantly chasing the muse wherever it may lead, covering Country, Swing, Jazz and Americana Roots with grace.
Her latest project, “American Folk Songbook,” was released worldwide in August 2011 and the live performance of this material has been lauded as a show not to miss!
She has one platinum and three gold albums, six top ten singles, and has won the Academy of Country Music’s award for Top New Female Vocalist (1988) and the Country Music Association’s Horizon Award (1992). You may have seen her on Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion Tour. In 1994 she recorded an album with Chet Atkins called "Simpatico", which was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Country & Western Vocal Collaboration. Chet said that Suzy has a voice that "sparkles like crystal." But it's not only her voice that makes her a crowd favorite. It's also her huge heart, which is always present at her shows, warming the audience to anything she might try. Fans and critics alike have admired Suzy’s vocal style, musicianship, and meaningful lyrics for decades. And after years in the spotlight, she remains one of the rare artists who has managed to walk the line between critical acclaim and commercial success.
"I think I learned what fans want, what really makes them happy, which is real simple. They just want people who sing to them genuinely. If you can do that, I think they're gonna give you all the love you need to keep you going." - Suzy Bogguss
