There is a great story on Billboard about what country star Suzy Bogguss is up to these days.
The singer had a Kickstarter event to raise money for a new record. She met her goals and the record will be released in about a month. The great thing about the new album is the songs will all be Merle Haggard covers. In the article, Suzy says that some of the choices might surprise her audience, but she’s confident that the record will be a hit with fans.
Check out one of the songs, I Think I’ll Just Stay Here And Drink.
I Think I’ll Just Stay Here And Drink – Suzy Bogguss
When you sing a Merle Haggard classic you’re going to get a high grade from me. And Suzy Bogguss has always been one of my favorite artists. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know my favorite era in country music was the late ’80s and early ’90s. Suzy was part of that era where she racked up a greatest hits worth of songs.
Her singles haven’t been on the charts for some time, but she’s been as active as ever with new music and touring. She’s been self-releasing songs for quite a few years now with some really good results. This new record is already proving to be a hit with her fans.
From the sounds of this song I think Suzy will continue to have success. The title of the song is straightforward and might seem surprising, but as Suzy says in the interview, we can all relate to needing some time alone once in a while to just let the anger flow.
