NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Just days after The Hollywood Walk of Fame announced Tanya Tucker will be one of their newest stars, the country music legend premiered her latest music video for “Hard Luck,” featuring Brandi Carlile and Shooter Jennings. This is the first official single from Tucker’s new album, While I’m Livin’ , due to be released August 23, 2019. A 1978 chestnut from country rockers Josefus, “Hard Luck” was chosen for the new album by Jennings and personalized lyrically by Tucker.

This tune is really fun,” said Carlile. “If you know Tanya Tucker you know this is her song.” The clip, directed by noted photographer Chris Phelps, stars Tucker, Carlile and Jennings.

The Return of Tanya Tucker

Born in Seminole, Texas, Tucker had her first country hit, the classic “Delta Dawn,” at the age of 13 in 1972. Since that auspicious beginning Tucker has become one of the most admired and influential artists in country music history, amassing 23 Top 40 albums and a stellar string of 56 Top 40 singles, ten of which reached the #1 spot on the Billboard country charts. Tucker’s indelible songs include some of country music’s biggest hits such as the aforementioned “Delta Dawn,” “Soon,” “Two Sparrows in a Hurricane,” “It’s a Little Too Late,” “Trouble,” “Texas (When I Die),” “If It Don’t Come Easy” and “Strong Enough To Bend.” Tucker is also the recipient of numerous awards, including two CMAs, two ACMs, three CMT awards and 10 GRAMMY nominations.

Tucker made a resounding return at the recent CMT Awardswith her performance of “Delta Dawn,” where she was joined on stage by Carlile and six of country’s top female vocalists including: Trisha Yearwood and Martina McBride.

Tucker’s first album of all new material in 17 years, While I’m Livin’ is her first release for Fantasy Records and her first new material since 2002’s Tanya.

What to Expect From The Upcoming Album

While I’m Livin’ is largely comprised of songs written by Carlile, the twins, Tim and Phil Hanseroth, and Tucker.

“It’s a musical biography of sorts,” Carlile explained, “about Tanya’s real life and the places she’s seen, and it’s narrated by the greatest country and western singer this side of Johnny Cash.”

“The Day My Heart Goes Still” is a reflection of Tucker’s enduring love for her late father, while “Mustang Ridge” recalls her hardscrabble childhood in central Texas. The album also contains some well-chosen covers including “High Ridin’ Heroes,” a 1987 song Jennings selected that featured David Lynn Jones and his dad, Waylon Jennings’, “The House That Built Me,” a track made famous by Miranda Lambert, and the aforementioned “Hard Luck” by country-rockers Josefus.
