She’s bucked the rules, she’s defied the odds, and at 61, she’s just getting started. An outlaw attitude and a voice like honey-coated gravel, there has never been anyone quite like Tanya Tucker.

The Bakersfield Sound

The Bakersfield Sound

by Halley Sanford May 16, 2020 2 min read 2 Comments

The “Bakersfield Sound” is ubiquitous, yet indescribable. You can’t really put it into words, but you know it when you hear it. It’s twangy. It’s honky-tonk. It’s the first generation of country music to be influenced by rock-and-roll. It’s everything Nashville country wasn’t at the time.
