Suzy Bogguss Teams up with TIME LIFE for the Long-Awaited Digital Release of ‘Live at Caffe Milano’
August 28, 2020
Live Performances of Her Biggest Hits
Available on All Streaming Platforms
Nashville, TN – Country music songstress Suzy Bogguss released Live at Caffe Milano, the rare and only live album she ever recorded, on all digital streaming platforms via Time Life on August 21, 2020. The recording was captured during a performance at the storied Nashville club Caffe Milano in 1999 and has only been sold in CD format at her concerts ever since. The singer/songwriter’s fans around the world can now enjoy beautifully recorded live versions of her seven Top 10 hits and other favorites, including “Night Rider’s Lament,” which remains one of the most-requested songs at Suzy’s concerts to this day. Bogguss also premiered a video for the album’s version of “Hey Cinderella” on her YouTube channel earlier today.
“In the late ‘90s, before 2nd Avenue and Broadway were crowded with live music venues, there was mostly just Printer’s Alley,” remembers Bogguss. “My good friend Chet Atkins started playing Tuesday nights at a 225-seat supper club downtown called Caffe Milano. He asked me to sit in and then to take over a few nights, and I fell in love with the venue. Before long I was doing my own nights. The audiences at Caffe Milano were always really enthusiastic and they’re definitely one of my favorite things about the album!”
“Now that we’ve all become so comfortable with streaming services, I’ve noticed how alternate versions of songs have become very popular,” she continues. “I had this great live album that I had never released. Our friends at Time Life got excited about putting it out digitally, and since they really know how to reach a broad audience, I got excited too!”
“This album really showcases the powerful connection Suzy makes with her audience during her live concerts as well as her flawless talent,” adds Mike Jason, Time Life’s Senior Vice President, Live Entertainment. “We all miss seeing our favorite artists right now, and this is a way to bring Suzy’s live shows to everyone.”
Since 1989, Suzy Bogguss has released 16 studio albums that have sold over 4 million copies, with one certified platinum and three certified gold. She has seven Top 10 country singles, including “Drive South,” “Hey Cinderella,” “Just Like The Weather,” “Letting Go,” “Outbound Plane,” “Aces” and “Someday Soon” as well as six additional Top 40 hits.
