We gave it a B+

No longer content, as in the old days, to be simply a cowboy’s sweetheart, country’s fairer sex now exercises its right to explore a woman’s full range of roles, as new albums attest. The veteran here is Suzzy Bogguss, whose third album Aces, challenges the conceit of the stereotypical passive country female, willing to put up with all manner of cantankerous behavior to hold on to a man. In one gutsy song after another, Bogguss — whose clear soprano rings without artifice — takes no guff, emerging as a woman and singer of substance. B+
