Tanya Tucker’s ‘Can’t Run From Yourself’ Turns 20

Can't Run From Myself
Liberty Records

It’s hard to believe it’s been two decades since Tanya Tucker released her 1992 classic collection ‘Can’t Run From Yourself,’ but today (Oct. 6) marks the 20-year anniversary of the record, which features one of the country superstar’s most memorable hits, ‘Two Sparrows in a Hurricane.’

The 10-song collection was a redemption record of sorts for Tucker, who experienced a lull in her career during the ’80s. The singer earned her very first platinum certification for her 1991 album, ‘What Do I Do With Me,’ and with ‘Can’t Run From Yourself’ matching its predecessor’s sales numbers, Tucker proved that her return to the forefront of country music was anything but a fluke.

‘Can’t Run From Yourself’ spawned three Top 5 singles, including ‘It’s a Little Too Late,’ ‘Tell Me About It’ and ‘Two Sparrows in a Hurricane,’ which was earned the No. 12 spot on our Top 100 Country Love Songs countdown. The beautiful ballad’s accompanying video struck a nerve with country music listeners, as it featured Tucker’s parents and two of her children.

‘Tell Me About It,’ a duet with Delbert McClinton, earned Tucker a Grammy nomination for Best Country Collaboration With Vocals in 1993.

The collection was released on Oct. 6, 1992, and peaked at No. 12 on the country albums chart. The singer racked up a handful of Top 10 singles in the years following the release of ‘Can’t Run From Yourself’ before stepping away from the limelight.
