Untitled[edit]

I've removed from the article to this talk the following off-site links that are ad-heavy and slow, in favor of links to future articles (1 and 2) on the songs.

If someone wants to refer to them for content, in discussing the songs, they'd be useful for that, but even if they were better links, they don't belong in this article. (Linking the articles also from here makes it more likely someone working on the articles will find this reasource. Hmm, will article-less talk pages survive if i add the ext links there?)

Outbound Plane
I Want to be a Cowboy's Sweetheart.

Musical Style[edit]

During her hiatus, the climate of country music had changed considerably, with more pop-oriented female singers such as Martina McBride, Faith Hill, Sara Evans and Shania Twain dominating the charts. Bogguss's traditional, straightforward style failed to connect with younger listeners, and the record yielded disappointing sales.

I found this particularly ironic, since I started liking country music largely because of older Suzy Bogguss songs like "Outbound Plane" with the heavy use on syncopation and piano and downplayed guitar that was a-typical of country music at the time. Tiger-Heli (talk) 16:59, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

Sources[edit]

To make sure we follow WP:BLP and WP:V (since the article has been tagged for over 5 years), I am taking an initiative to add sourced material from other reliable, third-party sources (i.e. Chicago Tribune, Associated Press, Los Angeles Times). I will add more as I go along. Please let me know if there are any issues here. Thanks, Lord Sjones23 (talk - contributions) 23:40, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
