Suzy Bogguss Set List: The Grey Eagle In Asheville

Suzy Bogguss Set List: The Grey Eagle In Asheville

A couple of nights ago, Michelle and I got to see Suzy Bogguss in concert for the first time. It was also our first visit to this venue, The Grey Eagle, in Asheville, NC. For those of you have not seen Suzy Bogguss in concert before, I thought I would share the set list so that you could have an idea of what to expect. I have to say that, her voice was just like I remembered it in the 90s. Many artists lose vocal range and quality over the years and I have also experienced some artists that just don’t sound that great live unfortunately. None of this is the case with Suzy Bogguss as her voice is just as crystal as I always remembered it to be. And, yes, she can still nail that note at the end of “Someday Soon.” Plus, the sound at The Grey Eagle is fabulous. This is definitely a venue that I will be returning to soon.

Suzy Bogguss Talks Merle Haggard, Roy Rogers & Reimagining "Aces"

With hits like, “Letting Go,” “Outbound Plane,” “Drive South” and “Aces,” Suzy Bogguss has won numerous awards including the Top New Female Vocalist {1989} from the Academy of Country Music and a GRAMMY in 2005 for Traditional Folk Album. She has had 8 Top 5 Singles on the Country Charts and I will always love her version of “Take It To The Limit” on the album Common Thread: Songs of the Eagles, one of my favorite albums of all time and the CMA Album of the Year in 1994. My personal favorite song of hers is “Just Like The Weather,” and I am really looking forward to seeing her live this Thursday night at the Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC, where she will be performing her hits as well as some Christmas favorites. I recently got to interview her and, I must say, she was just so friendly and bubbly that speaking with her was much like talking to an old friend.
