Tanya Tucker will make her debut performance at the VPAC on July 5th! We thought we’d share some Tanya Fun Facts before her arrival!

Did you know Tanya Tucker is coming to the VPAC for her first time on July 5th? While you might have known that, here are some facts about her that you might not have known.  

Tanya Tucker is an American Country singer and songwriter originally from Texas. Throughout her career she has had some incredible accomplishments. With #1 records in all decades of her career except the 2010’s, her music has had a lasting impression on its audience.  

She has also had a lasting impression on the country music scene. Possessing a soulful voice combined with her emotive delivery, she blends the country-pop trends relevant to the times. Nominated for countless awards, she has even had a handful of wins on her belt. 

It all started in 1972 at the age of 13, Tanya released her first song “Delta Dawn”. It reached Top Ten in the country charts, which was very impressive for such a young, emerging artist. If anything, it foreshadowed the successful careers she was yet to have, still making music at the age of 65. 

At the age of 14, Tanya got the Female Vocalist of the Year award from the Country Music Association, becoming the youngest artist to receive the award.  

Lastly, in 2023, Tanya was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. Over 5 decades of music lead her to being selected for the “Veteran Era Artist” category.  

The Vilar Performing Arts Center is incredibly honored to have such an amazing artist grace their stage.  

Tanya Tucker has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 per ticket goes to supporting Farm Aid and their work to cultivate a vibrant, just and resilient family farm-centered system of agriculture in America.
