American country singer Tanya Tucker won her very first Grammy award on Sunday, nearly five decades after she received her first nomination.


The famous entertainer was first nominated for a Grammy award forty-seven years ago. This makes her recent win an indeed remarkable one.

In a new YouTube video shared on Sunday, Tucker looked every bit the winner she is in a country-themed outfit as she walked out on stage to collect the award for "Best Country Song."

wore a khaki pantsuit

that had a jacket that sported fringe along its sleeves and colorful embroidery stitches across it as well as on the white satin shirt she wore underneath.

Tanya paired the ensemble with a pair of cowboy boots and had her silvery blonde mane style into a short bob that had pink tips and which framed her face.

As if the star's excitement wasn't already evident, she got on stage to express immense happiness at winning the award for the first time in her 50-year long career. Tucker:

"After 50 years in this business, I have a few firsts left. I can't believe it."


At the 62nd annual Grammy Awards that held on Sunday at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the 61-year-old crooner carted home two notable awards.

She took the first win alongside co-writer Brandi Carlile, who labeled sharing the Grammy with Tucker, "great honor of my life." The pair co-wrote the winning song, "Bring My Flowers," the closing track on Tucker's comeback album, "While I'm Livin'."

Tucker was first nominated for a Grammy in 1973 for her breakout hit "Delta Dawn."


They sure did an excellent job with the song winning Grammy for the best country song and the LP winning the best country album.

It was with great pride, joy, and fondness that Tucker talked about her decades-long journey to winning the Grammys and she had just one advice for the audience:

"No matter how old you are, never stop following your dreams."


No one knows better to give such a bit of advice; Tucker was first nominated for a Grammy in 1973 for her breakout hit "Delta Dawn."

Subsequently, she was nominated ten different times for the Grammys but has never won until yesterday, with her last nominations being issued in 1994.

Filled with joy at their win, Tucker and her writing buddy, Carlisle, also gave the audience a charged duet of their winning song, "Bring My Flowers."

The song is included in the youthful Singer's newest album "While I'm Livin'," which was her very first in nearly two decades, astonishing as it generated three nominations in all this year.
