No. 58: Tanya Tucker, ‘Delta Dawn’ – Top 100 Country Songs


At the very young age of 13, country music legend Tanya Tucker earned her first country western hit when she released ‘Delta Dawn.’ The song was co-written by rockabilly star Larry Collins and songwriter Alex Harvey, and it was covered by a number of artists. But Tanya Tucker’s version is the best-known copy of the song.

Tucker became one of the few child stars who maintained their popularity as an adult. She has been an award-winning singer since her major label debut of this addition to the Top 100 Country Songs list. Since then, she has received CMT, CMA and ACM awards — plus a number of other accolades, too.
