Tanya Tucker: Delta Dawn, What's Your Mama's Name (Columbia)

Ken Barnes, Phonograph Record, November 1973

TANYA TUCKER just turned fifteen years old and, as they say, she's taken the country music world by storm. Her first hit, 'Delta Dawn', went straight to Number One last year, and three other Top 5 smashes have followed, culminating in a second Number One, the current 'Blood Red And Goin' Down'.
