Tanya Tucker preps new LP co-written by Brandi Carlile, touring


Country legend Tanya Tucker, who burst on the scene in 1972 at age 13 with her Top 10 smash debut single “Delta Dawn,” is back with her first album of all-new material in 17 years. It’s titled While I’m Livin’ and was produced by Brandi Carlile, who co-wrote the album with twins Tim and Phil Hanseroth, and Shooter Jennings. “It’s a musical biography of sorts,” says Carlile, “about Tanya’s real life and the places she’s seen, and it’s narrated by the greatest country and western singer this side of Johnny Cash.” You can check out the video for single “Hard Luck,” which just the straight-talking twangy rocker she’s known for, below.

While I’m Livin’ is out August 23 via Fantasy and to celebrate, Tanya is playing special release shows in Nashville (8/22 at Exit/In), NYC (9/17 at Bowery Ballroom), and Los Angeles (10/16 at The Troubadour). Tickets for NYC, L.A. and Nashville show go on sale Friday, July 12 at 10 AM local time with a presale for NYC starting Tuesday (7/9) at 10 AM.

Tanya’s got other tour dates in addition to those special release shows. All dates are listed below.
