So you think you know Suzy Bogguss?
The platinum-selling artist is a Grammy, Academy of Country Music (ACM), and Country Music Association (CMA) winner best known for her 1990’s 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 most recently “Lucky,” which celebrates the songwriting of Merle Haggard.
She looks forward to performing in Viroqua at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 24 at the historic Temple Theatre.
“I can’t wait to play in Viroqua!” she said. “Being a Midwest girl, I always look forward to returning to that part of the country. Audiences are so friendly and I feel like I’m right at home.”
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.”
Tickets are $28. There is a $2 convenience fee per ticket when purchased online at historictempletheatre.com.
