One of the most acclaimed female country singers of the late ’80s and ’90s, Suzy Bogguss was able to balance country tradition with a contemporary mainstream sensibility, thereby satisfying both audiences and critics. Bogguss released her first singles in 1987, and her debut album, Somewhere Between, appeared the following year. It received hugely positive reviews for blending country’s past and present. Her 1992 album, Voices in the Wind, a more pop-oriented effort, brought the highest-charting hit of her career in the number two cover of John Hiatt’s “Drive South.” Her latest album, Lucky, is a collection of songs all written by Merle Haggard but reinterpreted by Bogguss. Each song is driven by the perfect marriage of her delicate voice and the adventurous, yet tasteful, playing of the band. “Merle’s songs were on the 8-track player in my dad’s car. Saturday nights when I would drive around with my friends, this was a part of our soundtrack. Back when country music talked about real adult problems and how we deal with them. We felt like we were eavesdropping on the secret lives of our parents,” Bogguss says.
