Tanya Tucker, the sultry-voiced female vocalist behind such hits as “Strong Enough To Bend” and “I’ll Come Back As Another Woman” is back. After a lengthy hiatus from the road, the legendary songstress returned to the road this past weekend with two sold-out shows in Illinois and Indiana. And she’s only beginning.

Tucker has a slate of shows lined up for the spring and summer, with dates continuing to be added to the schedule. And she will be coming to the Seven Clans Casino in Warroad in September. Having recently signed with APA, Tucker returns to performing armed with a virtual arsenal of some of the biggest classics in country music, such as “The Jamestown Ferry,” “Soon” and “Texas (When I Die).” Of course, no Tucker performance would be complete without “Delta Dawn,” the Alex Harvey-written classic that launched her career into the stratosphere in 1972 – when she was only 13. In between the hits, Tucker will share many stories and anecdotes of her iconic career.

Though she has been away from the stage for a while to spend time with her children, she says she’s excited to be back in the spotlight. “I am so excited about the upcoming tour,” she said. “Being in front of a live crowd is something that I feed off of. From the reception I felt from the first two dates, I think it’s definitely going to be a lot of fun returning to performing. I’ve missed the fans a lot.”

Steve Lassiter, SVP/Partner and Head of Concerts at APA Nashville, says Tucker and live performing are two things that simply go together. “There is something electric about a Tanya Tucker performance. She’s one of the most legendary recording artists of all time. She’s not just singing the music. She’s lived these songs. Some sad. Some happy. But all throughout the show, she sings and performs as only Tanya Tucker can. Returning to the road is something we all are very excited about.”
