Review: Tanya Tucker earned her flowers at Grand Casino Hinckley

– “What’s your name?” Tanya Tucker asked a fan who approached for an autograph between the songs on Saturday night at the Grand Casino Hinckley. “Tina”. Tucker then broke into an impression of Tina Turner’s dance which was as much for her own enjoyment as for the crowd.

Most legacy music shows, especially those in the countryside, tend to be autopilot in concert, to do the same show, to say the same things, night after night.

This country is not tough. He was very present on Saturday, very much in the moment, very spontaneous. Totally Tanya.

He scolded his daughter Presley, one of his supportive singers, for looking at his cell phone during the show. He asked a roadie to check the size of his leopard print western shirt with all kinds of rhinestones (medium, he reported) because it didn’t seem right.

He distributed countless shots of his tequila brand (not available in Minnesota) to fans and of course went deep.

He even stopped the show for several minutes when a fan lifted an amazing pink jacket personalized with a handcrafted image of Tanya. The singer autographed the coat, worn and posed for photos for the fan. It was difficult to say who was most affected: the admirer or the star.

To tell the truth, Tucker made jokes about his songs and invented facts like how, as a teenager, he performed on a hockey rink in Hinckley. But it was all in the name of entertainment. And Tucker could do it better than any other female country star that was big in the 70s. After all, Loretta Lynn isn’t on tour, Dolly Parton syncs with her lips and Emmylou Harris doesn’t do much country anymore.

What Tucker brings is personality, attitude and unpredictability. He has campy moves borrowed from Elvis and Ann-Margret. He can play the old sexpot, the grateful career and the veteran of the return, who has just collected his first Grammys almost 50 years after making his first album.

In an hour and a half, Tucker released 25 songs, touching his various eras from a striking teenager to a cold stone country singer to a leather-clad rocker.

Supported by six musicians and two singers, Tucker came out with the rock “Some Kind of Trouble” from 1991.

Mostly though, it has made the kind of country that you no longer hear on the radio, classic-sounding melodies often about life’s difficulties. There was some western swing, a melody of wanting to go to Texas after his death and a tribute to his heroes, old friend Merle Haggard (“Farmer’s Daughter”) and Johnny Cash (“Ring of Fire”, mixed with Bruce Springsteen “I’m on fire”).

Feeling that this crowd was mainly in classic Tanya, he saved the selections from the fantastic 2019 album, “While I’m Livin”, “his first with original material in 17 years, later on set.

The six new numbers written for her by Brandi Carlile and others sounded like Tanya Tucker’s vintage melodies, not like anything you would have heard on contemporary country radio.

Nothing more effective than “Bring My Flowers Now”, the Grammy winner for the best country song. While Tucker’s voice has become more hoarse over the years, it now sounds like a comforting mix of wisdom and fatigue. With that voice that found a profound conviction for the first time all night, he took stock of well-lived but imperfect life.

“Bring me my flowers now while I live,” he shouted. “I won’t need your love when I’m gone / Don’t spend time, tears or money on my old winded body / Well, if your heart is in those flowers, bring them.”

Bouquets of flowers arrived, both in the form of flowers and of extraordinary ovation.

Then Tucker launched into “Amazing Grace”, stopping and looking up after the phrase “that saved a wretch like me”. A totally Tanya moment. Soon she went to “Delta Dawn”, the noise of 1973 about a faded flower that introduced her to the world at the age of 13. It was obvious on Saturday that, at 61, Tanya Tucker is still blooming.
