Facts While I'm Livin', produced by Brandi Carlisle and Shooter Jennings, marks Tucker's first release of all new material in 17 years. The tracks are also mostly written by Carlile, Tim and Phil Hanseroth and Tucker. "It's a musical biography of sorts, about Tanya's real life and the places she's seen. "The Day My Heart Goes Still" is a reflection of Tucker's enduring love for her late father, while "Mustang Ridge" recalls her hardscrabble childhood in central Texas. While I'm Livin' also contains some well-chosen covers including "High Ridin' Heroes," a 1987 song Jennings selected that featured David Lynn Jones and his dad, Waylon Jennings, "The House That Built Me," a track made famous by Miranda Lambert, and the aforementioned "Hard Luck" by country-rockers Josefus. In many ways, the album's cornerstone is "Bring My Flowers Now," the only tune that was co-written by Tucker, Carlile and the twins. The album closer, told through Carlile's solo piano and Tucker's plaintive vocal, speaks to the importance of showing appreciation to those we love before it's too late.
