Tanya Tucker: Life Lessons from a Living Legend

The legendary Tanya Tucker and her daughter Presley join us for an intimate look at her childhood, a career that's spanned almost 50 years and the lessons she's learned after a wild life in the spotlight. Subscribe and download on your favorite podcast platform: Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Tune In, Stitcher. In this episode, a wiser and more reflective Tanya Tucker talks about how a driven father matched only by her own fearless pursuit led the two inside the most influential offices on Nashville's Music Row. She sings excerpts of some of her biggest hits including "Delta Dawn" and "It's a Little Too Late" and joins Presley harmonizing behind her daughter in an especially soulful "South of Sober." Tanya also reveals some new perspective on her famously stormy relationship with Glen Campbell, calling him "my one true love." We also hear how she was picked to record Garth Brook's "Thunder Rolls" only to have it taken away once the famous singer/songwriter got his big break and signed with a label just days after her recording session. Our host, Robert K. Oermann and the series producer, Brad Newman guide us through this candid, revealing exchange filled with great stories and new insight into one of Country Music's biggest stars.
