Country star Tanya Tucker has bounced back from a bout of poor health to celebrate Christmas with hometown fans at an impromptu gig in Arizona.

The singer hit the stage at the Rix Tavern in Wilcox on Wednesday (26Dec12).

Tucker, who spent much of her young life in the town, was joined by her daughters and son at the show.

She was forced to postpone the last date of her 2012 tour earlier this month (Dec12) due to health concerns.

The Delta Dawn hitmaker was slated to take the stage at the Foothills Performing Arts Center in Oneonta, New York on 9 December (12), but pulled out of the show for undisclosed medical reasons and rescheduled the concert for next August (13).
