Tanya Tucker sure knows how to make an entrance. The country icon made Grand Ole Opry history by riding a horse onto the stage. This happened Friday night at the country music institution. Tanya kicked off her scheduled performance by entering on horseback.
The Boot says Tanya was on hand to perform songs from her new album, ‘Sweet Western Sound,’ which dropped Friday. Opry historians believe her dramatic entrance marked the first time anyone has ridden a horse onstage at the Opry during the 97-year history of the institution.
This is classic Tanya Tucker. If anybody is going to saddle up and ride out on the Opry stage, it’s Tanya Tucker. She is getting ready for a big honor soon. Tanya is among the artists who are set for induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2023.
