Known for her distinctive voice and fiercely independent streak, Suzy Bogguss got her start in country music as a performer at Dollywood. From there, the singer became one of the early 1990s most distinctive voices, thanks to hits including the Top 10 "Outbound Train" and "Drive South," a No. 2 country chart hit.

Beginning with 1989's Somewhere Between, Bogguss released eight country music studio albums through the end of '90s (though they were preceded by two self-produced and independently released projects in the early '80s). Three earned Top 40 spots on the country albums chart, while one was certified platinum and two were certified gold.

In the 2000s, Bogguss' sound turned toward country-tinged jazz. Flip through the photo gallery below to see how those first eight projects stack up against each other.
