Live is the 13th released album by Tanya Tucker, but her first one recorded live in concert. She primarily performs live versions of songs that have been previously recorded in studio and released on her earlier albums. Three of the songs, however, had not appeared on any of her prior albums: "Somebody Buy This Cowgirl a Beer," "Pecos Promenade," and Robbie Robertson's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," which was made famous earlier by Joan Baez. However, a studio version of "Pecos Promenade" had been featured on the soundtrack to Smokey and the Bandit II and was a Billboard hit, peaking at #10 on the Country charts.
