Where Are They Now? – Here’s Tanya Tucker [VIDEO]

Tanya Tucker had her first country hit at age 13, and has been kicking out the hits for over three decades. And, she’s still touring. Today, we’re featuring her first big hit on our “Country Classic Double” at 11:30 a.m.

According to here website:

Tanya Tucker was born Oct. 10, 1958, in Seminole, Texas. Her father, Beau, a construction worker, and her mother, Juanita, encouraged her fledgling musical talents. Her early years were spent in Wilcox, Ariz., before moving to Phoenix in 1967. Her father booked her to perform with visiting country stars on stage at local fairs. The family moved to St. George, Utah, and her mother impressed the producer of the Robert Redford movie Jeremiah Johnson, which led to Tucker (and her horse) being featured.

To further their daughter’s career, they moved to Las Vegas, where Beau financed a demo tape. Subsequently, she first reached the Top 10 with “Delta Dawn,” followed by the double-sided “Jamestown Ferry”/”Love’s the Answer” and the No. 1 hit, “What’s Your Mama’s Name?”

After many years in country music, her contributions were finally rewarded when the Country Music Association voted her the female vocalist in 1991. She published the autobiography Nickel Dreams in 1996 and released the album Complicated in 1997. After parting with Capitol Records, she issued the album Tanya on her own label in 2002.”

Here’s 13 year old Tanya Tucker singing her big hit in 1973, “Delta Dawn”:
