Tanya Tucker Leads Country Grammy Nominations

This morning Tanya Tucker received four GRAMMY Award nominations including Song Of The Year: “ Bring My Flowers Now,” Best Country Album: While I’m Livin’, Best Country Solo Performance: “ Bring My Flowers Now,” and Best Country Song: “Bring My Flowers Now.” The four nominations lead all 2020 Country GRAMMY® nominees. Produced by Brandi Carlile and Shooter Jennings, While I’m Livin’, Tucker’s first new album in 17 years was released in August.

“I wish I had a trampoline to jump on right now! This is just unbelievable,” says Tucker. “I couldn’t have done this without the fans, Brandi and Shooter, and the whole Tanya Tucker Team. What’s different now more than ever is the fans on social media and streaming made this record an instant success. What just happened, I’d never, ever fathom.”

The four nominations mark a career high for the original country outlaw. Nominated for 10 GRAMMY® Awards over her illustrious five-decade career, Tucker landed her first nomination with “Delta Dawn” in 1972 for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Female.

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,” said Carlile, “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 62nd Annual GRAMMY® Awards will take place on January 26, 2020 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
