While I'm Livin'  marked a career resurgence for Tucker and led to the singer-songwriter getting long overdue credit for her role as a trailblazer in the outlaw country genre. Tucker won her first Grammy award for the album's title track, which she wrote with Carlile and Phil and Tim Hanseroth.

Tucker also announced a tour date at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium on April 10. The show will commemorate the 50th anniversary of her classic song "Delta Dawn" and will feature special guests.

"There's no room in the world like Ryman Auditorium," Tucker said in a press release. "Every time I walk on that stage I feel the energy of all the legends who've graced the The Mother Church of Country Music before me. I can't wait to return in April and bring a few friends with me!"
