In 1972, she won 'Most Promising Female Vocalist' at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

The song appeared on the album by the same name, which began a serious output in the '70s.

Between 1973 and 1979, Tucker released eight albums, including 1976's Lovin' and Learnin' and 1977's Ridin' Rainbows. Her popularity continued throughout the decade, but sales slowed in the '80s, though she released six albums that decade.

Tucker signed to Capitol Records in the mid-80s and her output in the '80s led to her receiving the CMA Award for Female Vocalist of the Year in 1991. She was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in 1997.

Having started out singing traditional country, Tucker expanded her styles over the year, recording country-pop and Outlaw country, among others.

In 2002, she started her own record label, Tuckertime Records. She also landed at the no. 20 spot on CMT's 40 Greatest Women of Country Music.

Tucker partnered with Brandi Carlile, as producer, for her 2019 album While I'm Livin'. It went on to win the Grammy for Best Country Album, while the lead single 'Bring My Flowers Now' won Best Country Song.
