Raised in a small Western Illinois town, Suzy Bogguss broke into the country music business after nailing an audition for Dolly Parton and becoming the first featured female performer at Silver Dollar City (later to become Dollywood). Bogguss signed to Capitol Records and released her debut album Somewhere Between, which contained the Top Twenty hit single "Cross My Broken Heart" and the Top New Female Vocalist award by the Academy of Country Music.
A duet with Lee Greenwood, "Hopelessly Yours" garnered Bogguss her first of three GRAMMY nominations. Her third studio album, the platinum-selling Aces yielded four hit singles - "Someday Soon," "Outbound Plane," "Aces," and "Letting Go," the latter three reaching the country Top Ten. At the 1992 Country Music Association Awards, Bogguss won the Horizon Award. Her 1994 album, Simpatico consisted of duets with long-time friend and legendary guitar virtuoso Chet Atkins. That same year, Bogguss's Greatest Hits album was released and went gold. Later, she collaborated with Alison Krauss, Kathy Mattea and Crosby, Stills & Nash to contribute "Teach Your Children" to the AIDS benefit compilation album Red Hot + Country produced by the Red Hot Organization.
The live performance of her last album, American Folk Songbook, has been lauded by fans, critics and buyers as “a show not to miss!” Suzy’s appeal has never wavered and her fan base continues to grow with constant touring around the globe including regular appearances on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion tour and the Grand Ole Opry!
