You recognize the rasp.
That’s Tanya Tucker and she’s got a new Christmas single out titled Merry Christmas Wherever You Are. How great is it to hear that voice again? You can’t beat the distinctive vocals of a country legend.
Merry Christmas Wherever You Are – Tanya Tucker
Christmas is a special time for most people. For me it means getting together with family that I really only see once a year. It’s a time to get together, laugh, and share stories of life and love from the previous year.
Merry Christmas Wherever You Are is a little bit of a somber tune. There isn’t always something to look forward to at the holidays. Sometimes we’re away from the people we love. We can’t all get together for the holidays. Life gets in the way sometimes. It might be that our kids are around the world. It might mean that our loved ones have passed. It might mean that a former love was broken off and this is our first holiday without them.
It can all happen yet there is always someone that’s waiting to spend time with you. It could be your spouse or your kids. Perhaps it’s the people that live down the street or right in the same building as you. Whoever you spend Christmas with make sure to make it a good one.
Tanya Tucker has been a little quite over the last few years. She still hits the road from time to time to play her countless number of hits. She’s still one of the influences on most of today’s rocking chicks like Miranda Lambert and Gretchen Wilson. You can feel the attitude bleed down from Tanya into the new girls coming up in the country ranks.
It was Tanya that brought the attitude and sass to country. She was the original female bad ass.
And even with all the attitude, Tanya could still turn it back and sing a great Christmas song. I love this one.
