Country star Tanya Tucker, known for her huge 1972 hit “Delta Dawn,” has been hospitalized after fracturing a vertebra and injuring a rib when she fell while on her current tour.
The AP reports that Tucker, 58, rescheduled three tour dates in Kansas and Oklahoma.
“A statement from her publicist says Tucker was also diagnosed with bronchitis while in a hospital in Texas. The statement says Tucker is receiving breathing treatments and physical therapy but will not need surgery,” the AP report notes.
Tucker was just 13 years old when she scored what would be the biggest hit of her career — and one of country music’s most durable hits of all time — in “Delta Dawn.” She went on to release a string of No. 1 country singles throughout the 1970s and 1980s, including “Would You Lay With Me (In a Field of Stone,” “Lizzie and the Rainman,” “Just Another Love” and “Strong Enough to Bend.”
She continued to score hits in the ’90s with songs including “Soon” and “Two Sparrows in a Hurricane.”
