The nine-times Grammy Awards nominee and the heartthrob of many 80s and 90s youths, Tanya Tucker has been professionally ruling the genre of country music for the last four decades. Over the years, she has garnered immense success and global recognition for a series of successful hits and solo albums such as “What’s Your Mama’s Name?“, “Strong Enough To Bend” and much more, which has ultimately led to an eventual net worth of Tanya Tucker to be an unfathomable amount of $65 Million US dollars.
The net worth of Tanya Tucker has been a result of sheer luck and hard work which over the years has flourished to stabilise her financial status and popularity on a global scale. Besides the music world, the huge success of Tucker has been accredited to her published autobiography and additional television stardom bestowed upon her. Hence, let us all witness for ourselves the marvellous journey of Tanya Tucker since her early teen and appreciate the jaw-dropping success of the 59-year-old lady.
Born on the 10th of October 1958 to well-established parents Jess Beau and Juanita Tucker, Tanya had a thorough exposure to country music owing to the engagement of her elder sister La Costa in the same field. Since the family had to shift a lot for her father’s business expansion, Tanya was blessed with the opportunity of getting introduced to eminent singers in and around Arizona, where she would sing in the town’s only radio station KHIL.
When the Tuckers shifted to St. George Utah, Tanya had been taken to audition for Jeremiah Johnson where she had got her first major role as an artist. Later, she was also given an opportunity by Judy Lynn to sing for the Arizona State Fair.
Tanya Tucker had stepped into the music world by her first debut with Mel Tillis henceforth which, she was reserved as a regular performer in Las Vegas since the year 1969. After the successful recording of a demo- tape which was carried all the way to CBS Records, Tucker was assigned as a teen vocalist by the eminent producer and director Billy Sherrill in Columbia Records.
Her first solo hit was with “Delta Dawn” released in the year 1972, which had soon garnered immense fame. In the same year, Tucker went on to release her second solo album entitled as the “Love’s The Answer” which was selected among the US top-10 songs of the year.
Her third hit “What’s Your Mama’s Name” was released a year later and the string of success kept on following henceforth. Besides ruling with the globally appreciated “Blood Red and Goin’ Down” and “Would You Lay With Me”, Tucker also flaunts several other albums which had eventually made into the top-10 list. To name a few would be “San Antonio Stroll”, “Here’s Some Love”, “It’s A Cowboy Lovin’ Night”, “Not Fade Away”.
However, her career went down in the 80s when she could flourish with only two major hits, one among them was “Can I See You Tonight?”
Tanya has been honored with the famous “Academy Of Country Music Awards” in the years 1972, 1993 and 2016, and “Country Music Association Awards” in 1991 and 1994. Apart from this, she has also bagged the CMT Awards thrice in the years 1994, 1997 and 2002.
