Tanya Tucker
May 5th - Saturday; 7:30pm
Mill Town Music Hall


In 1974, Rolling Stone ran a cover story on Tanya Tucker with the headline that said "You're Gonna Hear From Me." Truer words have never been spoken. For four decades, her sultry voice and vivacious stage presence has helped to make her one of the most admired and respected female vocalists in the Country Music genre.


Part of that appeal lies in the fact that Tucker's resume contains some of the most groundbreaking songs of the format's history. Songs like Alex Harvey's "Delta Dawn," Dallas Frazier's "What's Your Mama's Name" and David Allan Coe's "Would You Lay With Me (In A Field Of Stone)" firmly established Tanya Tucker as an artist from whom you could always expect the unexpected. Her early hits also contained some kick-up-your-heels moments, like "Texas (When I Die)," "San Antonio Stroll," and "Here's Some Love."
