Country music has changed since Suzy Bogguss released her first album. It’s twisted, turned into a modern culmination of pop music and heavily produced electric instruments. Bogguss, who released her first record in 1989 and has won a Grammy, has been a traditionalist in the world of country - sticking to the country music that tells a story in a song, the country music that many grew up on. Though she did a break to release a jazz album in 2003, Bogguss is still strong to her roots. That’s what makes Bogguss a champion for country custom, and an artist that keeps it alive.

It wasn’t only Valparaiso residents that flocked to downtown to hear Nile and his band play - people from Detroit, New York, Illinois and other parts of the country joined in to see Willie Nile make his triumphant return to the Memorial Opera House.

Willie Nile is no stranger to the Opera House’s stage. The (quietly) versed musician has stepped foot in the historic theater a handful times over the past few years, and on November 7th he’s stated to make his return. Before Nile and his band set up shop in Valpo, I talked to the rock legend about his new album, his Benjamin Button-like career, and why he keeps coming back to see his “old friends” in Northwest Indiana.
