– Tanya Tucker is recording again.
The singer signed with APA Nashville, a Nashville booking company, it was announced today. Taking time off to raise her children, Tucker is now prepping to hit the road once again with a new tour and new music. Slated for release later this year, the new tracks will be included in her first album since 2009's "My Turn."
Tucker's publicist said in a follow-up email that the label and management would be announced "soon."
Since her 1972 debut, Tucker has four Platinum albums, eight Gold albums, and hits such as "The Jamestown Ferry," "Down To My Last Teardrop" and "Soon."
"I've taken a few years off, and it is time to get back on the road," said Tucker. "I am really excited to perform all the hits that the fans love so much, and sing a few new songs that I have been working on."
Steve Lassiter, SVP/Partner and Head of Concerts at APA Nashville, said, "We are so delighted to be working with Tanya Tucker once again. She is simply one of those artists that is an American original - where you don't have to doubt who it is when you're listening to her. The fans have always been responsive to her live show, so this is nothing but a win-win for everyone concerned."
Tour dates will be announced soon.
