Monday 10/10/22 9am ET: Feature Artist: Tanya Tucker

Tanya Denise Tucker (born October 10, 1958) is an American country music singer and songwriter who had her first hit, “Delta Dawn”, in 1972 at the age of 13. Over the succeeding decades, Tucker became one of the few child performers to mature into adulthood without losing her audience, and during the course of her career, she notched a streak of top-10 and top-40 hits. She has had several successful albums, several Country Music Association award nominations, and hit songs such as 1973’s “What’s Your Mama’s Name?” and “Blood Red and Goin’ Down”, 1975’s “Lizzie and the Rainman”, 1988’s “Strong Enough to Bend”, and 1992’s “Two Sparrows in a Hurricane”. Tucker’s 2019 album While I’m Livin’ won the Grammy Award for Best Country Album, and “Bring My Flowers Now” from that same album won Tucker a shared songwriting Grammy for Best Country Song.

While I’m Livin’ is the twenty-fifth studio album by American country music singer Tanya Tucker. It was released on August 23, 2019, by Fantasy Records. The album was produced by Brandi Carlile and Shooter Jennings. It is Tucker’s first album in a decade, since 2009’s My Turn, and her first album of original material since her 2002 album, Tanya. The album earned Tucker the Grammy Award for Best Country Album at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards in addition to winning Best Country Song for “Bring My Flowers Now” which was also nominated for Best Country Solo Performance, and the all-genre Grammy Award for Song of the Year. Rolling Stone placed the album at number one on the publication’s list of the 40 Best Country and Americana Albums of 2019 and number 24 on their list of the top 50 Albums of 2019. Tucker promoted the album throughout 2019 with the While I’m Livin’ Tour and continued to support the album in the first quarter of 2020 on the Bring My Flowers Now Tour, a partnership with CMT’s Next Women of Country. The COVID-19 pandemic caused the remainder of the tour to be postponed until July 2021.

Artist Countdown: Paul Davis Top 20 Hits 12pm ET

Paul DavisPaul Lavon Davis (April 21, 1948 – April 22, 2008) was an American singer and songwriter, best known for his radio hits and solo career which started worldwide in 1970. His career encompassed soul, country and pop music. Typically, the slower the tempo of a Davis record, the longer it took to reach its peak position. Notable songs in his career include 1977’s “I Go Crazy“, a No. 7 pop hit which once held the record for the longest chart run on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as the No. 6 “‘65 Love Affair“, his highest-charting pop hit. In the mid-1980s, he also had two country No. 1 hits as a guest vocalist on songs by Marie Osmond and Tanya Tucker, and wrote singles for other country singers. His appearance in the mid-1970s to early 1980s resembled Leon Russell.

Before his death on April 22, 2008 (one day after his 60th birthday), Davis had returned to singing and songwriting by recording two songs, “You Ain’t Sweet Enough” and “Today.” He died from a heart attack at the Rush Foundation Hospital in Meridian, Mississippi. -Wikipedia
