Suzy Bogguss sings “Let’s Chase Each Other Around the Room Tonight”
Suzy Bogguss was born in Aledo, Illinois on December 30, 1956.
Suzy joined the church choir at age five and began to play the piano at the urging of her musical mother. When her older siblings began playing the drums, Suzy followed suit and continued this musical course through high school. As a teenager, she added the guitar to her repertoire and bought her first 12-string with the money she earned from baby-sitting. Though she sang in musicals and other school groups, it never occurred to her that her future was on stage.
Bogguss was “discovered” by talent scouts from Capitol Nashville while singing at Dollywood, Dolly Parton’s theme park in East Tennessee’s Smokey Mountains. A tape of her music that she sold at the park got into the hands of a label executive and three weeks later she was signed.
Some of Suzy’s accomplishments include ten albums for Capitol Records, one of which has been certified platinum and three others, gold. Eight of her singles have cracked country music’s top 5. Suzy is the recipient of a GRAMMY award (for Best Traditional Folk Album as a part of Beautiful Dreamer: The Songs of Stephen Foster) as well as several awards from the Academy of Country Music, The Country Music Association, CMT, and ASCAP.
In 2011 Suzy released American Folk Songbook a 17 song CD and hardcover book with stories and sheet music, available online and nationally at Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores. In 2013 she nominated for a GRAMMY for contribution to “This One’s For Him, Tribute to Guy Clark.”
