Holly Tucker has been performing and singing in front of people in her home state of Texas since she was only seven years old. Then, at the ripe old age of 14 she released her first CD. So, by the time she turned 19 and was selected as a contestant for Season 4 of The Voice, in 2013, she was already a seasoned veteran.
Holly has been referred to as the Angel of Texas Country Music and if you hear her sing, you’ll be hard-pressed to disagree. In this interview with Holly we talk about her early years singing in churches and then on to the stages of the Opry Houses that are a staple of the country music-loving towns in Texas.
Obviously, one of Holly’s most career-altering events was her experience on the television show, The Voice. In 2013 she rose to the top 6 out of the 40,000 singers who had auditioned for the show and she even received the coveted 4-Chair turn from the coaches. Holly ended up on Blake Shelton’s team and she visits with us about this experience and how it has ultimately affected her career and musical aspirations.
Today Holly is concentrating on her next project, of which, a few singles have already been released to radio, including her current single that is climbing the charts titled “Country Music Won’t Let Me.” In the interview Holly explains how she really digging in to the Texas and Red Dirt Music scenes and that she really feels that the scene allows her to focus on a more “country” music sound.
We also visit about the challenges faced by women trying to break out as a singers, songwriters and performing musicians. It’s a lively part of the conversation that I think listeners will appreciate.
So, grab your favorite beverage and sit back to enjoy this great conversation with the lovely and talented Miss Holly Tucker!
