Dressed in denim overalls, tennis shoes, and a baseball cap – if she wanted to disguise herself among the crowd, this video is proof that she just couldn’t hide her beauty and talent.

Tanya jumps on stage to join Brandi Carlile and sing her hit “Delta Dawn.”


Tanya started her country music journey at the young age of nine. Her father, Jesse Tucker, knew there was something special about her daughter but was still too young. Since then, he supported Tanya, giving her words of wisdom about how it is like to put emotions into her songs. And at the age of 13, she recorded “Delta Dawn,” which hit the airwaves by storm.

Brandi was both excited and honored to share the stage with Tanya.


Brandi herself started young at the age of 17. She picked up that guitar and started gigging at bars in Seattle. She started releasing her own albums in 2000 before Columbia Records signed her in 2015.

But Tanya has high praises for Brandi.

She shared with the audience how she once went to Brandi’s show. Tanya admitted that she’s not used to being in the audience’s end since she’s often on stage but said she was glad to have witnessed Brandi and her performance.

Tanya remarked:

“I’ve never seen someone sound as great as you. It was as close – maybe even pure – perfect. It’s like nobody else’s vocal ever.”

She even called in Lukas Nelson near her and praised him as well.

Lukas Nelson has huge shoes to fill in as his father, Willie Nelson, is a legend. But as Tanya remarked, he is more than just that and is more talented than people know.

After a few intros, Tanya led the way, started singing and the band followed.

They sang her hit single “Delta Dawn.”

There are a lot of fan theories as to what this song is all about. But there’s no matter how people interpret it; they never guessed how it was about the songwriter’s parents and their love story.

It’s a classic hit that when Tanya asked the audience to sing, they sang along perfectly. You can tell by Tanya’s face that she enjoyed it.

Tanya loved this moment and even acted casually on stage.

Of course, she deserves a blast of a finale for this one. She and Lukas exchanged vocals and guitar solos to end the song with a bang. The rest of the band followed on the final note.

It was one fun music show we all wish we went to.

Tanya jumped up and down, feeling ecstatic at the moment. Brandi, on the other hand, couldn’t believe what just happened on stage. All she could say was:

“I don’t know what just happened this night, but this is the best night ever. Everybody feels like that’s the finale of the show, but we’ll just keep going.”
