The Drop: Suzy Bogguss

Sponsored by Amoeba Music

Suzy Bogguss is one of country music’s most pristine and evocative vocalists. With the release of the Illinois native’s 1989 major label debut, Somewhere Between, Bogguss quickly became one of the key artists that defined those golden days of ’90s country. She scored a string of Top 10 singles with country radio staples like “Outbound Plane,” “Drive South,” “Hey Cinderella,” “Letting Go” and “Aces,” and her 1991 album of that name was certified platinum. In addition, she scored a trio of gold albums and notched more than 3 million sales. With her latest release, Lucky, released on Suzy’s own label Loyal Dutchess, the singer comes full circle, returning to her early inspiration, Merle Haggard.  A collection of Haggard classics, Lucky is remarkable in its freshness. Its acoustic-based arrangements, while sparse, crackle with vibrancy. Each song is driven by the perfect marriage of Bogguss’ delicate voice and the adventurous, yet tasteful, playing of the band. It’s indicative of what Haggard himself would do in the studio.  Please join us in the Clive Davis Theater as we celebrate the release of Lucky. In addition to an interview, Bogguss will take audience questions and will perform a selection of songs.
