Suzy Bogguss, with special guest Morgan Myles, will be performing in historic Bishop Hill IL on Saturday August 5, 2023. These FREE family-fun performances will be held at the Village Park, rain or shine, unless dangerous conditions arise. Guests are asked to bring lawn chairs. Golf carts will be providing rides to the park. The afternoon starts at 1 p.m. with Morgan Myles opening.
Believing it’s her mission to help people through the power of music, Myles is a full-time touring musician having opened for artists like Luke Bryan, Rick Springfield, Hank Williams Jr., Old Dominion, Jake Owen, and Kane Brown. She also recently sang back up on Cody Johnson’s radio single “Nothing on You.” In 2020, Myles won Artist and Record of the year for the Nashville Industry Music Awards for her debut album “Therapy,” receiving praise from Rolling Stone, Billboard, and American Songwriter. Recently Myles got a cut on Ty Herndon’s new record as a songwriter. Myles’ songs are shaped from her many years as a nanny to a mother diagnosed with ALS. Recently, Myles lost her close cousin to brain cancer, not too long after their grandfather passed away from a brain tumor. Myles recently competed on season 22 of ‘The Voice’ on NBC, where she received a four chair turn in four seconds singing her rendition of “Hallelujah.” Her views add to over 30 Million for her performances on the show. Myles finished in the Top 3 of the competition. After her performance of Lady Gaga’s “Always Remember Us This Way” dedicated to her late cousin and grandfather, the Glioblastoma Foundation named her the National Ambassador of the Foundation in February of 2023. Myles was invited to make her Opry debut this past January, where she received a standing ovation from the audience after performing two original songs, “Sanctuary” and “Woman of My Word”… AND you may have seen her walking the red carpet at this year’s Grammy Awards!
