In 1974, Rolling Stone ran a cover story on Tanya Tucker with the headline that said “You’re Gonna Hear From Me.” Truer words have never been spoken. For four decades, her sultry voice and vivacious stage presence has helped to make her one of the most admired and respected female vocalists in the Country Music genre.

Part of that appeal lies in the fact that Tucker’s resume contains some of the most groundbreaking songs of the format’s history. Songs like Alex Harvey’s “Delta Dawn,” Dallas Frazier’s “What’s Your Mama’s Name” and David Allan Coe’s “Would You Lay With Me (In A Field Of Stone)” firmly established Tanya Tucker as an artist from whom you could always expect the unexpected. Her early hits also contained some kick-up-your-heels moments, like “Texas (When I Die),” “San Antonio Stroll,” and “Here’s Some Love.”

In the 1980s, Tucker’s star continued to shine as she moved over to Capitol Records in the middle part of the decade. It was there that she released some of the most potent material of her illustrious career, such as “One Love At A Time,” “Just Another Love,” and “Strong Enough To Bend.”

The next decade showed no let down in her momentum, as she hit with songs that continued to touch her fan base – like “Two Sparrows In A Hurricane,” “Soon,” and “Little Things.”

However, Tanya Tucker represents much more than just a collection of hit songs – not that her resume isn’t impressive. But, what makes the singer unforgettable is her stage show. On one side of the coin, she can show her vulnerable side – through the emotional lyrics of many of her heartbreaking ballads. But, there’s that other side of Tucker – which she showcases her flirtatious and sensual side. Both of these elements have kept Tucker a crowd favorite for many years – and are among the reasons that her fans are grateful that she is returning to the road after an absence of a few years.

And, the best is yet to come for this future Country Music Hall of Fame member. With a new album forthcoming, the power house vocalist is set to remind listeners just why artists such as Miranda Lambert and Gretchen Wilson consider her to be one of their biggest influences. She’s lived a life full of love and heartbreak, and bounced back no matter the odds. In the crazy world of the music business, Tanya Tucker defines the word “legend,” but also “survivor.”
