Queer musician Brandi Carlile ushers her idol Tanya Tucker back into country music stardom
Hell-raising country music legend Tanya Tucker defied standards and left her mark on the genre. Decades after her moment in the limelight, queer icon and Grammy Award-winning Americana star Brandi Carlile takes it upon herself to write and produce an album for her hero based on Tanya’s extraordinary life. This spurs one of the greatest comebacks in country music history.
THE RETURN OF TANYA TUCKER follows Tanya’s bumpy ride back to the top, a ride that would not be possible without Brandi’s talent and encouragement. This engaging film documents the unexpected friendship that forms between the two women and illustrates the joy of a perfectly timed collaboration.
