It was during her tenure with Capitol that Tanya re-established herself as a confident adult country singer, avoiding most of the travails of former child stars. Her first few Capitol albums notched such big hits as "I Won't Take Less than Your Love" (featuring Paul Davis and Paul Overstreet), "If It Don't Come Easy", "Strong Enough to Bend", "Down to My Last Teardrop", and "Two Sparrows in a Hurricane". Given her increasing age and a shift toward more pop-oriented country by the end of the decade, she exited Capitol and has only issued two more albums since: ''Tanya'' was self-released in 2003, and the mostly cover song album ''My Turn'' in 2009. Despite the lack of new material, she has also continued to tour. She did make a comeback in recording with her 2019 album, While I'm Livin' which did become commercially successful and got awarded a few [[Grammy]] awards.

Tanya Denise Tucker began singing as a small child, and after her family moved to Vegas, she submitted a demo tape to Creator/ColumbiaRecords. Initially, Tucker was going to record "The Happiest Girl in the Whole USA", but that song instead went to Donna Fargo. Tucker's breakthrough debut instead ended up being "Delta Dawn". The song was a major crossover hit, and gave her enough momentum for three Columbia albums, all produced by Billy Sherrill.

The next leg of her career was spent on MCA Records between 1975 and 1982. While she had some hits in this timespan, including "Lizzie and the Rainman" (her biggest pop hit), "San Antonio Stroll", and "Here's some Love", her sales and chart performances were slumping. In addition, she had become romantically involved with the much older Music/GlenCampbell, and had begun abusing alcohol and cocaine. Her career went on hiatus from 1983 to 1986, when she returned on Creator/CapitolRecords to begin a new label relationship that would last for the next decade.
