Fueled by a Grammy Awards spotlight, Tanya Tucker lands her first appearance on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart in nearly 17 years, as "Bring My Flowers Now" arrives at No. 47 on the ranking dated Feb. 8.

The ballad debuts No. 6 on Country Digital Song Sales, where it's Tucker's first appearance, up 1,047% to 5,000 sold in the week ending Jan. 30, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.   

At the 62nd annual Grammy Awards on Jan. 26, Tucker performed "Flowers," which won for best country song, an honor awarded to its writers: Tucker, Brandi Carlile, Phil Hanseroth and Tim Hanseroth).

Tucker also won for best country album for parent LP While I'm Livin', marking her first two career Grammy victories. The set arrived at No. 9 on Top Country Albums in September, marking Tucker's 10th top 10. Produced by Carlile and Shooter Jennings, it became Tucker's first top 10 since What Do I Do With Me in 1992.

While I'm Livin' is her first album of all-new material since Tanya in 2002.

Tucker scored her first of 40 Hot Country Songs top 10s (a total that includes 10 No. 1s) in 1972 with "Delta Dawn," which reached No. 6 that August when she was just 13 years old. She posted her most recent top 10 with "Little Things" (No. 9, 1997) and until this week had last appeared on the chart in May 2003 with "Old Weakness (Coming on Strong)."
