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. In addition to the aforementioned Delta Dawn, Tucker’s indelible contributions include some of country music’s biggest hits such as 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 and three CMT awards. Recently, 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. 

A staunch advocate for country music’s female artists, CMT launched its Next Women of Country campaign in 2013 in an effort to support and expose developing female talent, both signed and unsigned, in a male-dominated format. The campaign showcases emerging female artists across all CMT screens throughout the year, and in the six years since its launch, CMT has expanded the initiative to include five CMT NEXT WOMEN OF COUNTRY Tours, anchored by superstar acts including Jennifer Nettles, Martina McBride and Sara Evans; a CMT.com digital series titled NEXT WOMEN OF COUNTRY LIVE; and more. Notable alumnae of the franchise who have achieved both commercial and critical acclaim, include Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Lauren Alaina, RaeLynn and Lindsay Ell. The 2020 tour is sponsored for the second consecutive year by Burlington Coat Factory.
