Country icons Little Big Town took the stage with the legendary Tanya Tucker at the 57th Annual Country Music Association Awards at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennesee, to perform Tucker's debut hit, "Delta Dawn," released in 1972. Tucker was only 13 years old when she took over country music with the timeless track. Due to success garnered from "Delta Dawn," the trailblazing star was the first female country artist to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone when she was just 15!
Tucker and Little Big Town had the crowd on their feet, singing to every lyric of "Delta Dawn" as 65-year-old Tucker dazzled in a sparking black jumpsuit.
Little Big Town will be hitting the road with George Strait and Chris Stapelton in 2024 as part of Strait's recently announced tour. The Grammy award-winning band will be performing in Indianapolis, Indiana, Ames, Iowa, Charlotte, North Carolina, Salt Lake City, Utah, Detorit, Michigan, Jacksonville, Florida, East Rutherford, New Jersey, and Las Vegas, Nevada as part of the highly-anticipated tour.
On October 22nd, Tucker was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and made an impromptu appearance on stage during the induction ceremony. Photos flashed across the big screen at the CMA Awards depicting the one-of-a-kind songstress with Johnny Cash at a previous award ceremony, showing just how long the queen has been gracing country music.
