THE RETURN OF TANYA TUCKER: FEATURING BRANDI CARLISLE
Though “Delta Dawn” singer Tanya Tucker’s star burned bright as one of country music’s icons of the 1970s, her tumultuous personal life eventually came to overshadow her artistic accomplishments, and the hits dried up. But one fan who never stopped burning a candle for the country renegade was bestselling singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile, who in 2019 approached Tucker with a proposal to help the long-dormant legend mount a comeback. Together, they went into the studio to craft a new batch of songs perfectly tailored to Tucker’s incomparable voice and her winding personal story. Through director Kathlyn Horan’s affectionate lens, it’s a joy to observe the collaboration between Carlile and her hero, who connect both as immeasurably talented musicians and as newly minted friends as they aid each other through the insecurities, frustrations, and artistic breakthroughs behind this very personal project. The triumph of their collaboration is a testament to the indefatigable power of the creative spirit.
