October 28th, I lost one of my greatest songwriting friends, Billy Joe Shaver. It’s a sad day and I’m just so torn between raising hell and lowering heaven a little bit. I felt it all the way from Nashville to Waco when he passed. I just go from looking back on our wonderful memories together to tears, then back to memories again. I have a lot to say about Billy Joe Shaver. He’s written so many songs, and I’m so glad I got to write a few of them with him. The whole songwriting community has suffered a huge loss today and most importantly the fans of country music. Billy was one of a kind, he wasn’t like anyone else. When he loved, he loved hard and I loved him right back. I just can’t find the words right now. Billy, he never had any trouble finding the right words when it came to a song, he was a master. Billy’s on his way to heaven and I’m just so glad I got to spend some of his life and some of my life together. I miss you already, my friend. Adios. - Tanya Tucker

Tanya Tucker's Cosa Salvaje Tequila is now available in select liquor stores throughout the Greater Nashville area, including downtown, Antioch and Mt. Juliet (complete list below). Cosa Salvaje Tequila is a silver spirit distilled by the family-owned Partida Distillery in Jalisco, Mexico from very mature Blue Agave plants, which results in a smooth, crisp taste. Tanya, a two-time 2020 GRAMMY® winner, enjoys drinking the succulent cocktail with fresh ruby red grapefruit juice and a touch of pulp. Cosa Salvaje translates as “wild thing” in Spanish. “I used to be a wild thing, now I just drink a wild thing! I truly love the taste of Cosa Salvaje Tequila. What’s even more important to me is how the agave and distilling process is environmentally conscious, so we’re taking care of our planet too,” Tanya shared.
