Along the way, she’s been a cutting horse champion, played dives and stadiums, created headlines and lived life to the fullest.
Since that auspicious beginning, she has become one of the most admired?and influential artists in country music history, amassing 23 top 40 albums and a stellar?string of 56top 40 singles, 10 of which reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard country?charts. Tucker’s indelible songs include some of country music’s biggest hits including “Soon,” “Two Sparrows in a Hurricane,” “It’s a Little Too Late,”?“Trouble,” “Texas (When I Die),” “If It Don’t Come Easy” and “Strong Enough To Bend.”?
