Tanya Tucker

New Music Featuring Tanya Tucker and Leroy Virgil Available Record Store Day 

Country music icon Tanya Tucker collaborates with Leroy Virgil (of Hellbound Glory) in an exclusive Record Store Day release of “Better Hope You Die Young.” The song’s “cautionary tale of the consequences of living life hard, with an easy groove that’s perfectly complemented by the whiskey soaked vocals of this pair of road warriors” (Parade/Laura Whitmore) was produced by Shooter Jennings.

“Shooter is such a sweetheart. I just love him to death. We recorded it LIVE with the band! I thought that was really cool and that’s kind of unusual these days. It was back to the basics and I enjoyed that,” Tanya Tucker said.

The video for “Better Hope You Die Young” premiered on Parade.com.

“I really like the song,” adds Tanya. “I think Leroy and the band are just fantastic. They don’t fit into any category or genre – they’re a little bit of outlaws, just like me!”

“Tanya Tucker and Hellbound Glory are a match made in honky-tonk heaven! She sings my words with so much soul, wisdom, and passion that it brought me to tears the first time I heard it. This needs to be heard by country fans of every generation,” Leroy Virgil said.

Shooter Jennings shared,

“Working with an artist the caliber of Tanya Tucker is always a dream. A friend of mine, Adam Sheets, had the idea for the duet. It’s a Hellbound Glory song that has always haunted me. And to see the idea come to life so gracefully was just so special. Tanya is a voice of gold and getting to spend time making a little magic with her was an honor and a delight. What a voice! What a sweetheart!”
