Following her historic wins for Best Country Album (While I’m Livin’) and Best Country Song (“Bring My Flowers Now”) at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards, two-time Grammy winner Tanya Tucker performs a song from “While I’m Livin’ ” on “Ellen” with the project’s co-producers, Brandi Carlile and Shooter Jennings.
Watch Tucker perform “Hard Luck” on “Ellen” HERE.
Tucker received her first Grammy nomination in 1972 for her now signature song “Delta Dawn.” After 14 nominations, Tucker’s wins marked a first for the original country outlaw as she remarked, “After almost 50 years in this business, after many dreams, it’s still unbelievable to me that I’d still have a few firsts left.” Tucker and Carlile also performed a stunning rendition of “Bring My Flowers Now” at the Grammy Awards. “While I’m Livin'” is Tucker’s first album in 17 years.
Backstage on “Ellen,” Tucker connected with fellow guest Justin Bieber. Both stars have grown up in the spotlight, the country icon having her first hit at 13 with “Delta Dawn” and Bieber at the same age with his first single “One Time.” Tucker was so touched by his interview where he shared how faith saved him that she gifted him a leather necklace and cross made of horseshoe screws.
Next month, Tucker will kick off the “CMT Next Women of Country: Bring My Flowers Now Tour” on February 5th. The CMT tour will make stops in such major cities as Boston, Dallas, Houston, New York, Ontario, Vancouver and more. Limited tickets are still available in some markets at TanyaTucker.com.
