ACOUSTIC COUNTRY CHRISTMAS with SUZY BOGGUSS and T. GRAHAM BROWN
A holiday evening with two GRAMMY, CMA & ACM award winners and country music legends, SUZY BOGGUSS and T. GRAHAM BROWN, right here in Boise, Idaho! Join us for the holiday spectacular when the two stars share a mix of Christmas standards AND their greatest hits from their legendary careers, full sets from each artist. ONE NIGHT ONLY at the historical EGYPTIAN THEATRE.
#1 HIT COUNTRY SINGER, SONGWRITER, GRAMMY, CMA & ACM AWARD WINNER, Suzy Bogguss. During the creative explosion that was country music in the 1990’s, SUZY BOGGUSS sold 4 million records with sparkling radio hits like “OUTBOUND PLANE”, “SOMEDAY SOON”, “LETTING GO”, “ACES”, and “DRIVE SOUTH”. But you can’t peg Suzy that easily. In the midst of her country popularity she took time off to make a duets album with the legendary CHET ATKINS. In 2003 she made an album of modern swing music with Ray Benson of ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL…an album of original music in 2007 that landed her at number 4 on the jazz charts. Her folk music roots show through in her frequent appearances on public radio’s, A PRAIRIE HOME COMPANION, with the Grammy she earned for her work on Beautiful Dreamer: The Songs of Stephen Foster, and in her critically acclaimed album and book project from 2011, American Folk Songbook. In 2014 she released "Lucky", a collection of songs written by Merle Haggard and interpreted through Suzy’s crystal vocals from the female point of view. Her latest offering, "Aces Redux", is a re-recording of her platinum selling album "Aces" produced by Suzy with fresh arrangements and her signature effortless vocals. So yes, you can call her a country singer if you want, but really that’s just the beginning.
T. Graham Brown:
#1 HIT COUNTRY/SOUL/GOSPEL SINGER, SONGWRITER, GRAMMY & CMA AWARD WINNER, T. GRAHAM BROWN.
Brown’s initial breakthrough record was the 1986 bluesy hit "I TELL IT LIKE IT USED TO BE".

In 2015 he was nominated for a Grammy for Best Gospel Album with “Forever Changed”.
