Tanya Tucker back onstage after health issues

WENN

Country star Tanya Tucker has bounced back from a bout of poor health to celebrate Christmastime with hometown fans at an impromptu gig in Arizona.

Find: Tucker's turbulent past

The singer hit the stage at the Rix Tavern in Wilcox on Wednesday. Tucker, who spent much of her young life in the town, was joined by her daughters and son at the show. She postponed the last date of her 2012 tour earlier this month due to health concerns.

The "Delta Dawn" singer was slated to take the stage at the Foothills Performing Arts Center in Oneonta, N.Y., on Dec. 9, but pulled out of the show for undisclosed medical reasons and rescheduled the concert for next August.

Tanya did great in Willcox. It was good to see her recognize Willcox.  I have pictures of the entire show online on Facebook @ JSMUSICAZ.    Her vocals were good and her kids were great. Her stopping here was a great lift for the City's Morale.  A sincere thank you to Tanya and her family for sharing their evening with all of us!   Welcome Home!!!

My band , POCKET CHANGE from WILLCOX, AZ, was the opening band for Tanya when she came to Willcox on 12-19-12. It was a pleasure working with Tanya, her son-Grayson,  her daughters - Layla and Presley, Shelly Fairchild, Billy Joe Walker, and her manager Jodi. It was definately a night to remember and Tanya made everyone in Willcox feel like her family.  Check out my band POCKET CHANGE on facebook @ POCKET  CHANGE - WILLCOX, AZ.

Tanya is wonderful. The whole band sounded great in Sturgis. She and her band asked my husband who was recently in a motorcycle wreck and in a wheelchair to come back stage with all his friends to watch the show. They provided everything he needed to have a wonderful time! It is nice to know there are caring people out there.

Thanks very much Tanya!

Well wishes to you.
