Tanya’s first musical break occurred during one of her family’s visits to the Arizona State Fair, on the chance that Tanya would participate in one of the singing shows. Her successful performances in front of the fair’s managers led to the family moving to Las Vegas, where Tanya regularly performed. By the time she was a teenager, Tucker had recorded a demo tape that gained the attention of the head of CBS Records, and she soon signed with Columbia Records. Tanya’s first single “Delta Dawn” was released in the spring of 1972 and instantly became a hit, reaching number six on the country charts. The moment the public found out she was only 13, it became an even bigger sensation.

  1. Maybe she should be worth 50 million with all the success but like many the fortune slipped through her hands. It was even reported she was bouncing checks for a while. Her drug habits of the past cost her plenty. Her family enriched themselves with her early earnings. She lives comfortably in a nice but modest 500k home. Unlike female country stars who wrote their big hits from her era(Bobbie Gentry, Dolly Parton) she also never had their security of substantial songwriter royalty checks rolling in on a consistent basis. A reasonable estimation of her net worth would be 1-2 million.
