Tanya Tucker Passes the Torch

Country legend and sometimes train wreck

Tanya Tucker was a long way from Tuckerville last night. Our cameras caught the singer with her daughter Layla at Mr. Chow.

The 8-year-old songbird was encouraged by Mama Tucker to sing a little ditty. Like a good girl with refined Southern manners, she spit her gum into mama's hand and obliged. Ding dang, y'all!

Too bad Brit Brit wasn't there to see how it's done.
