Tear Me Apart is the tenth album by Tanya Tucker. Most of her fans will be surprised at how little "country" music is on this album, however. Produced by British rocker Mike Chapman, who along with longtime songwriting partner Nicky Chinn, wrote two of its songs, it continues the more rock-based sound begun on the preceding TNT, but even more so. The album rose to the #33 position on the Billboard Country Albums chart, although there were no charting singles for the first time in Tucker's career. Perhaps the best song is "Better Late Than Never," one of the hardest rockers of Tucker's career.
