Her Story

Kate Delaney

Toni Tennille – Singer Songwriter

How does a shy southern belle go from singing with the family to touring  the country with Number 1 pop hits,  to massive crowds?   Hear Toni Tennille’s story, dealing with her rise to fame all the while dealing with a partner that was incredibly hard to read.  The relationship was complicated and driven to succeed, yet still suffered from challenging backgrounds.
Ironically their biggest hit was Love Will Keep Us Together did not ring true for the songbirds.   Toni was unable to create the happy spot for Darryl and herself so they eventually did split.    Perseverance and a Joie de Vivre propelled Toni to the place of peace and joy where she is now.
Check out her spirited discussion with Kate about her life, her favorite moments and hilarious anecdotes on this week’s Her Story and check out her new book: Toni Tennille A Memoir.
