Tanya Tucker Earns Grammy Nominations In Four Categories

Tanya Tucker has earned a string of Grammy nominations for the upcoming 2020 ceremony. “Bring My Flowers Now,” written by Tucker alongside 2019’s Grammy darling Brandi Carlile, as well as Phil Hanseroth and Tim Hanseroth, is nominated in the all-genre Song of the Year category.

“Bring My Flowers Now” also earned a nod for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance when the nominations were announced on Wednesday (Nov. 20).

Her album While I’m Livin’ earned a nod for Best Country Album. The project, which released this year via Fantasy Records, was produced by Carlile and Shooter Jennings. It marks Tucker’s first album of original material since her 2002 project Tanya. While I’m Livin’ also features a few cover songs, such as “The House That Built Me” (a hit for Miranda Lambert), “Hard Luck” (Josefus), and “High Ridin’ Heroes” (David Lynn Jones/Waylon Jennings).

Tucker has previously been nominated for several Grammy Awards, starting with 1973’s Best Female Country Vocal Performance, for “Delta Dawn.” Her songs including “Down To My Last Teardrop,” “Dream Lover” (with  Glen Campbell), “Love Me Like You Used To,” and others have garnered Grammy nominations throughout her 40-plus year career.

Tucker is set to headline CMT’s Next Women of Country Tour in 2020.
