In the public eye since the age of 13, when she broke into the music scene with 1972’s “Delta Dawn,” Tanya Tucker has remained surprisingly relevant for more than three decades. Several reinventions along the way haven’t hurt. After releasing the racy rock-inspired TNT in 1978, Tucker relocated to LA to live “on the ragged edge,” partying hard and staying up late with the help of Don Johnson, Andy Gibb, and cocaine. Although motherhood softened her up a bit, she can’t shake her “outlaw” image. Tucker comes home to Texas this week, promoting 2009’s My Turn, an album inspired by the sacrifices her father made to kick-start her career. We’re hoping she plays our favorite, “San Antonio Stroll.” $39.50, 9pm, Gruene Hall, 1281 Gruene Rd., New Braunfels, (830) 629-5077, gruenehall.com
