Personalities | Tanya Tucker | Mainstream Country

(Vocals, b. 1958)

Teenage prodigy Tanya Tucker amazed everyone when, at the age of only 13, she charted with ‘Delta Dawn’, and she reached No. 1 three times in less than a year throughout 1973–74. The last of these chart-toppers was David Allan Coe’s adult song, ‘Would You Lay With Me (In A Field Of Stone)’. Voted CMA Female Vocalist Of The Year in 1991, she attempted a pure pop career in the late 1970s, but returned to producer Jerry Crutchfield to score her tenth country chart-topper, ‘Strong Enough To Bend’ in 1988.
