In this day and age of so many Talent programs on TV, with so many young stars coming through, something that is not really remembered is that this is nothing new, as it has been going on for decades now in Popular Music.

Such is the case with the singer of today’s featured song, Tanya Tucker.

Blessed with a beautiful voice at such a young age she was asked up on stage by Mel Tillis.

What followed that was her fist hit, a Top Five Single on the Country charts with ‘Delta Dawn’, a song later to become a huge hit on mainstream charts when it was picked up by Australian American Helen Reddy in 1973.

Tanya made the song a hit first time round in 1972, still aged only 13.

What followed that was another Top Five Single, and then her First Number One.

The song featured today was written by Peter Noah, and was her fifth Number One on the Country Charts. This song was a hit for Tanya in 1975, so in effect Tanya had Five Number Ones, and she was still only 17 years old.

Tanya managed the difficult transition from child/teenage music star to adult star, and her long list of hits continued through to 1980.

She still kept recording and touring and even now, she still performs regularly.

So, while these days we often hear of young stars with recording contracts, this is nothing new, as that road has been travelled down before.

Tanya’s songs have crossed over onto the mainstream charts but she was a huge star on those Country Charts with 7 Number Ones, and ten other songs that went into the Top Ten.

You may think that for a young man as I was at the time, that it was pleasant to have such a good looking singer to watch, that beautiful and catchy voice was what attracted me to her long before I saw her singing.
