Award-winning country music icons TANYA TUCKER and JOHN ANDERSON will perform together for the first time in Sioux City at the Orpheum Theatre on Friday, July 7th at 7:30 pm.
ABOUT TANYA TUCKER:
In 1974, Rolling Stone ran a cover story on Tanya Tucker with the headline that said “You’re Gonna Hear From Me.” Truer words have never been spoken. For four decades, her sultry voice and vivacious stage presence has helped to make her one of the most admired and respected female vocalists in the country music genre. Tanya’s reign includes 23 Top 40 albums and a string of 56 Top 40 singles, 10 of which reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts. Along the way, she has provided some of the biggest country music hits of each decade, including, “Blood Red and Goin’ Down,” “Would You Lay with Me (In a Field of Stone)” and “Texas (When I Die),” just to name a few. Tucker is also the recipient of numerous awards, including two CMAs, two ACMs, and three CMT awards.
ABOUT JOHN ANDERSON:
To put it simply, John Anderson is one of the greatest country music singers to ever stop up to the microphone, possessing one of the most instantly recognizable vocal instruments in the history of the genre. His Country Music Hall of Fame-worthy career has produced 23 albums, more than 60 singles (20 reaching the Top 10), and a wealth of industry awards. Anderson notched his first major hit in 1980 with “I’m Just an Old Chunk of Coal (But I’m Gonna Be a Diamond Someday).” Other hits, including the classic “Wild and Blue” in 1982, solidified his
status as a powerful new voice in country music. “Swingin’,” written by Anderson and Lionel Delmore, blew the roof off a year later, exploding to No. 1 on the Billboard Country chart, propelling Anderson to the CMA Horizon Award, and becoming one of the most enduring hits in the country canon. The album Seminole Wind produced hit singles in “Straight Tequila Night,” “When It Comes To You,” “Money in the Bank,” and the stirring title cut. Anderson’s latest album, Goldmine, includes 12 of 13 original songs written by Anderson himself. John Anderson is now the standard bearer for traditional country music, of the 100-Proof variety.
