Tanya Tucker: Kindness

She’s on the road again…

Tanya Denise Tucker: The Epitome of American Western Women.

… and other stuff, including musing.

It was back in the year 1972 when I first heard Tanya Tucker sing Delta Dawn. It was the first time anyone in the general public heard Miss Tucker sing. And what a singer she would become.

I was 18. I graduated from high school, the year before, at age 17. Wow, what a singer she was and still is!

Tanya Tucker was just 13 when she recorded Delta Dawn on 17 March 1972. She released the 45 RMP record less than a month later and the whole world would get to hear the young, vibrant Miss Tucker’s voice. Delta Dawn was on side-A of the US single that would launch Tanya Tucker’s musical career. “I Love the Way He Loves Me” was on side-B of her first hit.

From then on it was country music history.

Tanya Tuckers First Single

This year, 2023, Tanya Tucker was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. It is a well-deserved award for a career spanning over a half century. Tanya Tucker has won several awards during her long musical history. Indulge in the links I have provided here and spoil yourself.

I did not plan on writing a blog post today. I have too much other stuff to do that singularly and collectively are time consuming. But I was working on my writing dashboard Write On! blog that has tons of links to music videos I listen to while crafting masterpieces for your reading pleasure and sometimes horror. Somewhere along the day’s travel I discovered Tanya Tucker’s New Song, Kindness. It is on her brand new album, Sweet Western Sound, to be released 2 June 2023.

Lyrics to Kindness

Write On! is currently a private blog and will soon be opened to the public as I show you some of the ideas, I offer you for writing that you can help yourself with.

But first, I am fighting many demons and gremlins within the WordPress system which I think needs new management. Today, I’m not going to bash the powers that be behind the iron curtain of the secret society within the WordPress tome-like platform. But I can assure you, as a lifetime top manager in business, I would never allow such substandard treatment of customers.

Some of you may be snickering, thinking perhaps I’m an idiot for not figuring out the most basic things one needs to function well in blogging. Know, you and everyone connected to WordPress and these Big Tech operations like them, are losing money and lots of it.

How do I know? Because if it bothers me, I know it bothers plenty of other people, too.

I know millions walk away from operations like this in frustration and never say a word about it. They don’t tell anyone like I do.

You lose readers. Advertisers lose revenue. That guy that sits high on his thrown in WordPress and other Oz-like worlds, or behind the curtain, never sees the failures operating behind the scenes that I see and experience in the front lines and trenches of the blogging warfare.

You lose followers. You lose readers. You lose valuable world communication because those who run like rabbits from foxes will never stay long enough to give your blog a read, let alone make comments to you. You are in the elite club, like the blue checks in Twitter, someone special. Yet you are trying to sell something to someone who has no ability to function where you are selling. And yes, many of you have “donate” buttons, PayPal, Go Fund Me and other ways to generate revenue for your writing. But millions will never see your work or contribute because the elitist club is not open to those millions.

The despair.

If you notice my navigation bar up top is helter-skelter, totally unstable, and unmanageable. After working days setting it up in a better way, some secret villain within WordPress network or a demon or gremlin totally released bugs worse than the Downtown Las Vegas Maverick and Hidden Village bedbugs and cockroach infestation. To be fair, WordPress hidden village is not alone in the guilt. I directly blame every Big Tech and Big Telecommunications involved to have a hand in the substandard ways we as American and a world seem to tolerate. You know, Cox, Google, Microsoft, Firefox, Chrome, YouTube, etc., all of them. The Chain Gang. Or I should say, the BROKEN chain gang.

I have learned how to follow and like and add comments on some fellow bloggers’ pages, but not all is a success, and I’m still working on this major task, but here is the bottom line, then I’m getting back to Tanya Tucker because I feel much better praising people for their success than bashing unsuccessful anonymous creatures from the abyss.

I remember when blogging was easy. So easy anyone could do it. When you developed a navigation bar with parent and child structures it was quick and easy to complete. And then it stayed put forever. Or seemed so.

Following and liking and making comments was not complicated at all. It was easy. Anybody could do it. Quick.

The squirrels that bury their nuts are like the first mouse that gets greedy and grabs the cheese. The second mouse always gets the cheese.

How many millions of people just flat out refuse to take the BS Big Techs like WordPress dish out? Why do so-called educated behind-the-scenes anonymous individuals that cannot be personally confronted insist on burying their nuts when we need those nuts to make our nut pudding?

Tanya Tucker Spreads Kindness

What People Are Saying About Tanya Tucker in Nashville

Sweet Western Sound

Well, thank God for Tanya Tucker and Jackie DeShannon and all those music generators, songwriters and singers that make our frustrated life so much easier and less complicated. We can enjoy their music and in the case of both those two ladies just named, Tanya Tucker and Jackie DeShannon and many others, enjoy it for more than a half a century. Don’t worry, country bumkins, your times coming. It’ll be here before you know it and then you’ll be in the Geezer crossing and in the headlights of some youngin whippersnapper, someday soon. Lifestyle of the geezer crossings.

They write easy songs, easy words, easy and peaceful music that is easy to understand and enjoy.

While on my Write On! excursion I discovered Tanya Tucker has two new albums recently released. Full albums, my goodness. Not just singles.

Yes, my fellow bloggers, I am into western music, western-genre reading and western writing as well. Being a multi-genre writer, I am a big fan of frontier justice when, at least in the imagination, we can create an escapist atmosphere and leave this brutal world at least momentarily and visit an even more brutal world hoping the AI patrols don’t find something wrong as they inflict 1984 Orwellian upon us.

Yes, Martha, Tanya Tucker.

I was inspired by the discovery of Tanya Tucker’s new original song, Kindness, from her brand new album, Sweet Western Sound, to be released on 2 June of 2023.

I vision myself writing a western story with a strong female heroine inspired from Miss Tucker’s latest creation. I often write as if I am creating a visual of a movie in the making. Who knows, maybe if I succeed, Miss Tucker could make the movie with her splitting imagine of self and the adorable costumes she uses in her latest promotions.

Be I ever get to where I am intended on going, Miss Tanya Tucker has always had my respect and honor. She was just a 13 year old kid singing adult themed songs and transpired that into a successful career.

And before I forget, if you notice many of the videos, I present here are published by Tanya Tucker herself.

If you like western music and if you love Tanya Tucker, hit the keyboards running and search up a new storm to find the material to bring you pleasure about her exciting life…and most of all, track her tour dates… she’s on the road again.
