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. The country music icon’s sultry voice and vivacious stage presence makes her one of the most admired and respected female vocalists in the country music genre. Tanya’s reign includes 23 Top 40 albums and a string of 56 Top 40 singles, 10 of which reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts. Along the way, she has provided some of the biggest country music hits of each decade, including, “Delta Dawn,” “Soon,” “Two Sparrows in a Hurricane,” “It’s a Little Too Late,” “Trouble” and “Texas (When I Die),” just to name a few. Tucker is also the recipient of numerous awards, including two CMAs, two ACMs and three CMT awards. In August 2016, the Academy of Country Music honored Tucker with the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award during the 10th Annual ACM Honors™. All-inclusive sales of singles, albums, hits collections and digital downloads have topped 25 million records worldwide. For more information, visit tanyatucker.com.
