Among all those clever but silly country hits concerning achy breaky hearts and old flames with new names, Suzy Bogguss' potent versions of such substantial songs as Nanci Griffith's "Outbound Plane" and Ian Tyson's "Someday Soon" stand out like a turkey dinner in a doughnut shop.

Country singer Suzy Bogguss went through a divorce earlier this year, but not the kind that made a star out of Tammy Wynette. The relationship that fizzled for the Illinois-born Bogguss was the one she'd had for 12 years with Capitol Records. She's still happily married to songwriter-producer Doug Crider. "It was difficult not to think of it as a divorce and to feel a little bit like a failure," Bogguss, 42, said earlier this week by phone from Chico, Calif.

Suzy Bogguss' high-profile tour with legendary guitarist Chet Atkins, which stopped at the Universal Amphitheatre on Saturday night, may be just what she needs to move her up a notch commercially in the crowded field of female country singers. Bogguss has long been stuck in that second line of country artists, looking up at the Rebas and Wynonnas.
