Grammy Winner Suzy Bogguss Returns to Asheville

Suzy Bogguss

Grammy Winner Suzy Bogguss is set to return to Asheville for a night of music at the Isis Music Hall Friday, June 9 along with her critically acclaimed trio. The platinum-selling artist is an ACM, and CMA winner best-known for her 1990s string of country radio hits including “Outbound Plane”, “Drive South”, “Letting Go”, and “Aces”, but it doesn’t stop there.

Never one to be nailed down to a genre, Bogguss has since released several projects on her own record label, Loyal Dutchess Records, including Sweet Danger, a top 5 jazz record, American Folk Songbook, a collaboration with Cracker Barrel, and Lucky, which celebrates the songwriting of Merle Haggard. Most recently she released Aces Redux, a re-recording of her platinum selling album Aces, which celebrated its 25th anniversary this year.

When Bogguss performed at SXSW in 2014 Rolling Stone named her one of “The 48 Best Things We Saw at SXSW 2014” elaborating, “She’s as country as they come.”

What’s on the horizon? Bogguss is currently writing and preparing for her next album. Listeners may even hear a new song or two during her upcoming sets, but she promises nothing is too formatted, “My show is very spontaneous. Each show is unique. The guys in my band say that my set list is just a suggestion,” she laughs. “It’s very fluid. If I feel like the audience wants to hear a particular song or if there’s a request I am happy to shift gears. I’m just loving these intimate rooms and interacting with the crowd.”
