The year is 1972.  3 years ago man first stepped on the moon.  Vietnam is still a part of the world in which we live.  Richard Nixon is President of the United States.  Most of us have never heard of the word 'Watergate'.

And then, almost like a bolt out of the blue, a 13 year old girl took over the Country Music World with a song called 'Delta Dawn'.

 

 

Born in Texas, but most of her early childhood spent in Arizona, Tanya Tucker listened to Country Music radio.  At the age of 8 she declared she wanted to sing Country Music.

By the age of 13 she was a national star and the hit's just kept on comin'.

'What's Your Mama's Name', 'Blood Red and Goin' Down', 'Lizzie and The Rainman', 'Here's Some Love'...the list goes on and on, well over 30 Top Ten hits, including 10 #1 smash hits.

So whatever happened to Tanya Tucker?

Well, the good news for Tanya Tucker fans...she's still performing and recording.  In fact, Tanya was featured on the recent Terri Clark 'Classic' album, lending her voice to the 'Delta Dawn' remake.
