When it comes to irresistibly sweet country voices, Suzy Bogguss’s is perched high on the list. Bathed in pure, disarming, mountain-creek beauty, it is one of those knock-me-over-with-a-feather wonders I can listen to for hour upon hour. And, wonder of wonders, Bogguss is bringing that great voice to area venue Daryl’s House to melt a few Hudson Valley hearts this Saturday.
Born in Illinois to a father who worked at the International Harvester tractor plant, Bogguss moved to Nashville in 1985 in pursuit of her dream of becoming a country singer. Four years later, she was awarded the prize for Top New Female Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music. Since then, she’s performed at the White House, been nominated for a Grammy, and collaborated with Allison Krauss, Kathy Mettea, and Crosby, Stills, and Nash. Her most recent album is last year’s Lucky (Loyal Dutchess Records), a collection Merle Haggard songs.
Suzy Bogguss will perform at Daryl’s House in Pawling, New York, on March 28 at 9pm (doors at 7:30pm). Tickets are $25. For more information, call (845) 289-0185 or visit http://www.darylshouseclub.com/.
