My dad, Ducky. As the child of an alcoholic, I was lucky to share our final years together with him sober. I forgave him for all the pain caused by this horrible disease.

I love my father deeply. This photo was from one of my shows in Vegas. How wonderful that we could share this moment together. I went through one of the hardest trials in my life when my precious doll baby daughter Tanya Tucker was born on April 18, 1977. She was preemie baby with a disease called highland membrane disease. She swallowed fluid’s from me into her lungs also as they were doing the c- section to remove her from me. I was then took to the recovery room after surgery. As I was laying there in recovery, I knew in my heart that something wasn’t right.
