Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Tucker reveals a frank yet sensitive and vulnerable side in recalling her roller-coaster ride of a life. Her family had a hard time financially while she was growing up, but they had a core of love and support for one another. When Tucker decided as a young child that she wanted a country-music singing career, her parents did all they could to help her achieve her goal. Ultimately, Tucker realized her dream and has won many awards and accolades. Unfortunately, a love of wild partying, alcohol, and drugs almost cost Tucker her career, but a stay at the Betty Ford Center helped reset her priorities. She takes advantage of the autobiography format to set the record straight on her rocky relationships with men, yet not all is love and war. She cherishes her family life and adores her children, and she makes many references to people in the entertainment business. Tucker looks forward to a lot more living and even hints in the last few pages that in a few years there just might be a second volume. Recommended for public library and country music collections.Kathleen Sparkman, Baylor Univ. Lib., Waco, Tex.
