“I heard that he got the idea for this song because he and his wife had been out on the road a lot together,” country singer/songwriter Suzy Bogguss says before starting off today’s Free At Noon performance with a Merle Haggard cover. “…He saw her from across the airport and remembered how lucky he was. And he walked over and he touched her on the shoulder and he said to her, Today I started loving you again.”
Today Bogguss and her back-up boys stopped by the World Cafe Live to celebrate her latest release Lucky. Narrating why she chose each song on her Haggard tribute, Bogguss crooned to the crowd with pure elegance performing well known Merle tunes like “Silver Wings” and “The Bottle Let Me Down.” Tonight, catch the entire entourage again at Sellersville Theater.
