One of country music's greatest stars, Tanya Tucker, has just finished recording a new album, My Turn, to be released on June 30, 2009 on Saguaro Road Records. Few can match the emotional range of Tucker's vocals or the extraordinary career that began when she landed her first Top 10 hit on the country chart at just 13. On her new album Tucker takes classic country songs originally recorded by the all time great male legends of the time and turns the tables, giving classics such as "You Don't Know Me" and "Oh, Lonesome Me" a powerful reconstruction from a woman's point of view. "Tanya is one of the few country superstars able to deliver searingly honest country songs and still relate to fans of every age and musical interest," says Saguaro Road Senior Vice President Audio & Video Retail Mike Jason. "She is a one of a kind artist and personality and epitomizes what we at Saguaro Road are all about."
Working with producer Pete Anderson (Dwight Yoakam, Michelle Shocked), Tucker selected songs from her childhood that inspired her career and completely transformed their delivery and meaning with her inimitable earthy, passionate and unflinching style. Tucker reworked classics such as Buck Owens' "Love's Gonna Live Here" (featuring Jim Lauderdale), "You Don't Know Me" by Eddy Arnold, George Jones' "Walk Through This World With Me" and even invited The Grascals to join her on a flip-flop of the Conway Twitty/Loretta Lynn duet "After The Fire Is Gone." Bluegrass stars Rhonda and Darrell Vincent also appear on the album and producer Anderson does double duty, playing guitar on each track. ''I always knew Tanya was a great singer," said Anderson, "but not until she went up against the classic country songs and singers of all time did I realize that she is one of the greatest alive ....she made these songs her own." "I am extremely proud of the record we made," he added.

"I picked the songs my daddy always wanted me to sing," explains Tucker. "This is really a tribute to him because he was with me throughout my entire career. He's now with God above but I know he's watching over me still and loving these songs and this record." The power of Tucker's recordings is palpable as she wrings new, unexpected and tough-as-nails emotion from lyrics like Merle Haggard's "Ramblin' Man"; "But I don't let no no man tie me down, And I never get too old to get around. I wanna die along the highway and rot away, Like some old high-line pole, Rest this ramblin' fever in my soul." And when Tucker sings "Is Anyone Going To San Antone," she turns it from heartbreak to acerbic; "Wish he hadn't done me that way, Sleepin' under a table at a road side stop, Well a woman could wake up dead, Still it seems a warmer than it did, Sleepin' in your king size bed."
Only 13 when her provocative "Delta Dawn" caused a nationwide stir and became a Top 10 country hit, Tucker has built one of the most successful and compelling careers in music. Considered one of the very few females of the "outlaw" country movement, she holds a Grammy award, two Country Music Association awards, Two Academy of Country Music awards, and three CMT Awards. 23 of her albums have landed in the country Top 40 chart since her 1972 debut, and she has amassed 10 #1 country singles, 33 that have reached the Top 5, and 41 in the Top 10.
