Beat Goes on Records released this collection of three of Suzy Bogguss' albums. I'm not really a fan of modern country. I like Kacey Musgraves and Ashley Monroe but there's not a whole lot more. So I was surprised when watching the Drive South video on youtube and how much I liked it. This is 90's country which I rarely listen to. Suzy had a way of getting a traditional and contemporary sound down though. Her voice is gorgeous especially on Someday Soon, originally an Ian and Sylvia song. That was a hit. There are also other good songs here like Aces, Eat at Joe's, and of course Drive South. I'm curious about the albums earlier in her career especially her take on I want to be a cowboy's sweetheart.
