Q&A with Tanya Tucker

Yesterday, The 9513 included in their news roundup a Q&A session with Tanya Tucker about her upcoming covers album, My Turn, which will be released on June 2nd on Saguaro Road Records. I just stumbled upon a more complete version of that interview. Particularly interesting was her revelation that she’s only partnering up with Time-Life for this one project. I’d still like to know when the long anticipated Lonesome Town will see the light of day.

    I’d like to know about Lonesome Town as well.

      The only reference I could find to it was on Wikipedia which just says that it’s due out in 2009 but was delayed in favor of My Turn . However, the same article says that “Love’s Gonna Live Here”, the lead single from My Turn would be available as a digital download on April 17. And guess what? It ain’t. ;)

      I’m thinking it could be a long time before Lonesome Town is released because I don’t think she’s got a label to release it on. Tuckertime was an imprint that Capitol let her have, as a part of the settlement of her lawsuit against them. I don’t think she’s associated with Capitol anymore, otherwise she wouldn’t be releasing the covers album through Saguaro Road.

        So it’s one of those labels which is little more than a name? That’s a shame. Maybe if the covers album sells well she’ll get someone interested in putting out her new material.

          It was more or less a vanity imprint that Capitol granted to her when the lawsuit was settled and gave her more control over her music. I suppose she could use it as a true indie label, the way Dolly did with her last album, but I imagine it’s probably very expensive to do that.
