New Documentary On Tanya Tucker Featuring Brandi Carlile

Opens nationwide on November 4th

Trailblazing country music legend Tanya Tucker defied the standards of how a woman in country music was supposed to behave. Decades after Tanya slipped from the spotlight, rising Americana music star Brandi Carlile took it upon herself to write an entire album for her hero based on Tanya’s extraordinary life, spurring the greatest comeback in country music history.

Nominated earlier this week for BEST MUSIC DOCUMENTARY by the Critics’ Choice Association, THE RETURN OF TANYA TUCKER – FEATURING BRANDI CARLILE, has wowed festival circuit audiences at the Telluride Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, SXSW Film Festival, and the Nashville Film Festival, among others. Taking stock of the past while remaining vitally alive in the present and keeping an eye on the future, THE RETURN OF TANYA TUCKER is a rousing exploration of an unexpected friendship built on the joy of a perfectly timed creative collaboration.

The feature-length film, directed by Kathlyn Horan, follows Tucker’s richly creative, utterly captivating, bumpy ride back to the top as Carlile encourages her to push past her fears to create a new sound and reach a new audience. The writing, the experimenting, and refining of this new music mixes with all that came before – using rare archival footage and photographs to delve into Tucker’s history, beginning in a single wide trailer in Seminole, Texas.
