Born October 10,1958 in Seminole Texas, Tanya Tucker was the
youngest of four children born to Jesse "Beau" and Juanita Tucker.
Tanya had her first hit, "Delta Dawn", in 1972 at the age of 13.
Over the succeeding decades, Tucker became one of the few child
performers to mature into adulthood without losing her audience, and
during the course of her career, she notched a streak of top-10 and
top-40 hits. She has had several successful albums, several Country
Music Association award nominations, and hit songs such as 1973's
"What's Your Mama's Name Child?" and "Blood Red and Goin' Down", 1975's
"Lizzie and the Rainman", and 1988's "Strong Enough to Bend".
Tanya Tucker won her first two Grammys on January 26, 2020 when she won best country song for “Bring My Flowers Now” and best country album for “While I’m Livin’.” This comes 47 years after her first nomination in 1973 for her breakout hit “Delta Dawn” which she recorded when she was 13 years old.
