Tanya Tucker – 53 Years Old Today
You really start to feel old when the child-stars of show business are in their 50s. Today, Tanya Tucker, who recorded her big hit “Delta Dawn” when she was just 13 years old is celebrating her 53rd birthday. Now that’s a good reason to feature her in today’s “Country Classic Double” at 11:30 a.m.
As I mentioned, Tanya Tucker was a child star, and here’s a little bio information courtesy of Wikipedia:
“Tanya Denise Tucker (born October 10, 1958, in Seminole, Texas) is a female American country music artist who had her first hit, “Delta Dawn”, in 1972 at the age of 13. Over the succeeding decades, Tucker became one of the few child performers to mature into adulthood without losing her audience, and during the course of her career, she notched a streak of Top 10 and Top 40 hits.
She has had several successful albums, several Country Music Association award nominations, and hit songs such as 1973’s “What’s Your Mama’s Name?” and “Blood Red and Goin’ Down,” 1975’s “Lizzie and the Rainman,” and 1988’s “Strong Enough to Bend”.
