Tanya Tucker will perform April 21 at the Fox Theater.

Tanya Tucker isn't slowing down.

The "Female Elvis," who won three Grammy awards this year, will bring her powerful songwriting to Bakersfield next fall for "CMT Next Women of Country: Bring My Flowers Now."

Tucker will headline a show at the Fox Theater on Oct. 17, 2021. The singer was originally scheduled to perform in April but the show was postponed due to the pandemic.

Tickets purchased for the original show date will be honored. Others will become available closer to the show date. The Fox's box office is currently closed but questions can be emailed to info@thebakersfieldfox.com.

At the age of 13, Tucker had her first country hit with "Delta Dawn." She would go on to create hit songs like "Two Sparrows in a Hurricane," "Texas (When I Die)" and "Strong Enough to Bend."

Tucker's "Bring My Flowers Now" tour is part of the CMT "Next Women of Country" that is a campaign showcasing female artists in the country music scene.
