1980s Icon Tiffany’s Country Comeback with ‘Rose Tattoo’ Written by Greg Victor in Music on 30 July 2011

It’s official: the 1980s are back. They have arrived in the form of Tiffany’s return to the music scene. The girl whose confessions to teen mall-rats across America made her a 1980s icon is ready to impress the world with her country music. Her cover of “I Think We’re Alone Now” pushed her debut album to the number one spot on the Billboard charts (and in less than year, was certified quadruple platinum). Now she is setting her sights on conquering the country charts with her new album, Rose Tattoo.

You’ve seen her as the subject of an episode of VH1′s Behind the Music series (in which she disclosed an eventual reconciliation with her mother) and, you may have heard that she posed for a 2002 issue of Playboy magazine. But if you think that the music in her life ever stopped, think again. She’s kept on writing songs and honing her skills as a performer and is now making some kickin’ country music. She’s about to go on tour with the other 1980s pop princess, Debbie Gibson.

Hers is a familiar voice, tailor-made for the gutsy, bluesy songs she has written as an adult. Country music is a natural fit for Tiffany, who was born in Oklahoma. As a young singer, she started off performing country songs, eventually getting discovered by country music veterans Hoyt and Mae Axton during the early ’80s, while performing at a country nightclub in Los Angeles. She’s a rocker at heart, but her roots are in country music. These songs are honest and emotionally from the heart. From the sound of the songs on Rose Tattoo, sounds we should welcome the now-grown-up, flame-haired wife, mom (and still singer) home.
