In Tuckerville, the former "bad girl of country music" now focuses on her kids, and it's evident that they top all of her many successes. Daughters Presley (16) and Layla (7) and son Grayson (13) keep Tucker hopping. As in every family (especially those with teenagers), there's plenty of turmoil, and none of it escapes the cameras. In typical reality-show style, individual interviews with the characters offer further insight into the goings-on within the household.

The Tucker home often also welcomes friends and extended family, and sometimes an off-site event brings in other big names from the music industry. In one episode, for example, Grayson escorts his mom to a charity auction where he rubs elbows with country stars LeRoy Parnell and Big and Rich. Tuckerville offers an honest (sometimes startlingly so, as in the case of Tanya and Grayon's frequent verbal clashes) and, at times, heartwarming glimpse into family life that may not be too different from that of many adult and teen viewers. It doesn't reinvent reality TV, but there are worse families to spend time with.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
