The original bad girl of country music is coming to St. John’s.
Country music solo artist Tanya Tucker is set to play Mile One Centre on May 14, a show presented by Mighty Quentin Concerts.
A 13-year-old Tucker rose to fame in 1972 with her first hit “Delta Dawn” and over the following decades she carved out a reputation for a vivacious stage presence that made her one of the most admired and respected female vocalists in country music.
Her resume includes 23 top 40 albums featuring 56 top 40 singles, 10 of which reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts. Some of her most popular songs include “Soon”, “Two Sparrows in a Hurricane”, “It’s a Little Too Late”, “Trouble”, and “Texas (When I Die)”.
She’s won two Country Music Awards, three Country Music Television honours, and two awards from Academy of Country Music, which honoured Tucker with the Cliffie Stone Icon Award.
Tickets for the show range in price from $49.50 to 59.50, plus tax and surcharge, go on sale this Friday at the Mile One Centre box office and online at mileonecentre.com.
