Tanya Tucker - TNT. Now that's what I'm talkin about. This record has some fun songs on it - like Brown Eyed Handsome Man, a great version of Not Fade Away, and Heartbreak Hotel, Angel from Montgomery, and I'm the Singer, Your the Song. It was recorded at a place called Kendun Recorders in Burbank CA. There's some great guitar work on it by Jerry Swallow and Billy Joe Walker, Jr. TNT is the ninth studio album by Ms. Tucker. Working with producer Jerry Goldstein, this seems to veer off from the Nahsville sound to a more rock-based sound. Critics think the best song on the album may be her original version of "Texas (When I Die)," which had never been previously recorded. Tanya Denise Tucker was born October 10th, 1958, in Seminle Texas. She had her first hit in 1972 with Delta Dawn - at age 13.
