Tanya Tucker thrilled a sold out crowd at her Ryman Auditorium show Sunday night (Jan. 12) with a slew of nonstop hits and an impressive slate of guests that included Billy Ray Cyrus, Lee Ann Womack, Dennis Quaid, Margo Price, Jamey Johnson, Billy Joe Shaver, Johnny Rodriguez, Walker County, Erin Enderlin and Hailey Whitters. The evening marked the first time in her five decade career that Tucker played a headlining show at the historic venue.
“There is no place in this world that I would rather perform than right here at the Ryman Auditorium, the Mother Church of Country Music. What a beautiful, beautiful view I have. The greatest award in the world is right here,” Tucker said to the packed house during the Ryman stop.
Next month, Tanya will kick off the CMT Next Women of Country: Bring My Flowers Now Tour on Feb. 5. The CMT tour will stop in Boston, Dallas, Houston, New York, Ontario, Vancouver and more, and include a variety of CMT’s Next Women of Country alum, including Aubrie Sellers (2017), Brandy Clark (2013), Erin Enderlin (2017), Hailey Whitters (2020), Madison Kozak (2020) and Walker County (2020).
