“‘While I’m Livin’,’ an earthy, charismatic mythologizing of her life.”

“Nearly fifty years after the singer became a child phenom, While I’m Livin’ arrives as a much-deserved course correction from Tanya Tucker. The album–part legacy-bolstering roots project, part first-person confessional–shows a more sensitive side of the former country star, so much so that Tucker was initially hesitant to record this batch of songs…”

“And now she’s back, with While I’m Livin’, an important album of new material…that both reaffirms the range of her abilities and, in its content, reclaims her many sides.”

“The album captures the rugged warmth from Tucker that’s been missing in country music for nearly two decades.”
