Award-winning country music legend Tanya Tucker is coming to Branson for one night only! Tanya will grace the stage with sultry performances of some of her greatest hits, like “Delta Dawn” and “If it Don't Come Easy,”
Born in Texas, but spending most of her childhood in Willcox, Arizona, Tanya was exposed to country music from a young age. She attended concerts like Ernest Tubb and Mel Tillis. When she was eight, she decided she wanted to be a country singer, too. She auditioned for a role in the film Jeremiah Johnson, and was hired as a bit player, which led to her breakout around the same time when she performed at the Arizona state fair.
From the young age of 13, Tanya made great headway in country music. She made her debut with Mel Tillis, who invited her onstage to perform. Her demo tape caught the attention of Dolores Fuller, who sent it to Billy Sherrill, who got Tanya signed to Columbia Records. Her debut song, “Delta Dawn,” gained huge popularity and soon she was releasing singles like “Love's the Answer” and “What's Your Mama's Name” that became a top-ten hit and a number one hit, respectively.
From 1973 to 1994, Tanya Tuck was nominated for Grammy awards 9 times, and she has received the following awards:
