Tanya Tucker Ready For Another Dose of Reality
Tanya Tucker is once again delving into the world of reality TV. The iconic singer of such classics as ‘Delta Dawn’ and ‘Strong Enough to Bend’ is following her short-lived TLC series, ‘Tuckerville,’ with another reality show called ‘Tuckertime.’
“I almost have six shows ready to go,” she tells Billboard. “We are looking for another network … We’ve got lots of footage. It shows our move out of our Tuckerville ranch in Nashville and how hard that was. Then going out to L.A. we had a six-vehicle caravan, and it shows all our trials and tribulations on the way. And of course, being in Malibu and living there.”
Tucker is not leaving her music career behind. She’s getting ready to release a new album, ‘My Turn’ — a collection of classic country cover songs, including ‘Walk Through the World With Me’ by George Jones, ‘Lovesick Blues’ by Hank Williams and ‘Ramblin’ Fever’ by Merle Haggard. For many female singers, songs made famous by men would be too much of a risk, but not for Tucker.
“My past pretty much speaks to the fact that I like strong men’s songs and I turn them into strong women’s songs,” she says. “Women have the same needs, desires and pain as men do.”
‘My Turn’ will be released in June.
