The first trailer for the forthcoming documentary, The Return of Tanya Tucker, has been released. The film, due out this fall, will chronicle Tucker’s career resurgence in 2019 following her album While I’m Livin’, which was co-produced and largely written by Brandi Carlile. You can take a look at the trailer – here.
The documentary chronicles Tucker’s career and how she found her way back into country music, decades after she faded from the spotlight, with the help of Carlile. Carlile says in the trailer: “I have loved Tanya Tucker since I was eight years old. Tanya’s voice is in all of us that sing country music. And it’s time for us to do an about-face and recognize that.”
The Return of Tanya Tucker uses archival footage to tell the story of Tucker’s career, as well as contemporary footage from the recording process of While I’m Livin’. That album brought Tucker her very first Grammy Awards in 2020 — winning Best Country Album, as well as Best Country Song for one of its tracks, “Bring My Flowers Now.”
