CD reviews for Suzy Bogguss

Lucky CD review - Lucky
Suzy Bogguss' original intention to was to make a record based in country and blues, and she and husband (and co-producer) Doug Crider kept thinking of Merle Haggard songs that fit the bill. The result is something pretty and much happier in places than the originals. For instance, the anti-Christmas carol and perennial recession anthem, If We Make It Through December, is fairly upbeat with its bright acoustic guitar finger picking and Bogguss' pretty voice. Nevertheless, you can »»»
Swing
At first blush, it might seems as though Suzy Bogguss and Ray Benson would make strange professional bedfellows. But it just so happens that when the '80s/'90s country superstar started out, jazz standards and swing numbers were a staple of her developing repertoire, and when she started earning her keep on the road as an opening act, she spent a lot of time in front of Asleep at the Wheel. Her friendship with big Wheel Benson has paid off on her first new album in three years, where Bogguss shows »»»
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas
Same title as Lee Greenwood's Christmas CD, different results for Suzy Bogguss. This grossly underappreciated talent shines like the great Northern star from word one. Why on Earth wasn't this album a major release? Enchanting, clever takes on "Mr. Santa" and "Sleigh Ride" highlight a talent that's yet rosy and atop a game that seems to have all but shut her out. Nevertheless, treated to 12 wrapped tight tunes that stretch from a swish 'n' swaying "Winter Wonderland" to one of the finest »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them – Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be. And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»
Concert Review: Bingham plays with something to prove – Ryan Bingham mainly focused on songs from his sixth album "American Love Song," for this lively show. Backed by a supportive band that also included two female backup singers and a fiddler, Bingham's eclectic setlist touched upon country, singer/songwriter folk, rock and blues. Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
