Bringer of Good News: Live In-Studio with Tennessee Tuckness

Tennessee Tuckness, LIVE on High Plains Morning

Today on High Plains Morning, we welcomed Amarillo singer-songwriter Tennessee Tuckness into the studio for a chat and a few songs. (Ahem, it seemed we chatted a little too long!)

It's about time we had Amarillo-based singer-songwriter Tennessee Tuckness live in the studio on High Plains Morning! Well, today was the day, but it seems we just got to gabbin' and ran out of time for more MUSIC. (Don't worry. She'll be back!)

Playing guitar since age 14, Tennessee has been a regular fixture in the lively music scene in the Yellow City. The combination of her masterful picking and enchanting voice make every song a true experience. Edging along a combination of country, folk and blues, her songs express real heart—something HPPR listeners always appreciate.

Her latest release, "Matters to You," came out last May and features Nashville session player Tim Crouch. She also has a new video for her recent single "Bringer of Good News."

If you want to catch her live set, here are a few upcoming shows in Amarillo:

-Friday, 9/16: Six Car Pub (with Gary Wayne Thomason)

-Friday, 10/7: Concerts in the Canyon (with full band: Gary Wayne Thomason, Buddy Squyres, Rick Faucett & Lance Allen)

-Friday, 10/28: Golden Light Cantina

Also, she recently did a live-recorded performance with West Texas A&M University's "One Sessions."
