About Tayna Tucker:
At the age of 13, the original female country outlaw Tanya Tucker was the youngest female to grace the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine with the message, “You’re Gonna Hear From Me.” Dubbed as the female Elvis, she achieved mainstream chart-topping success with 15 number-1 hits including "Delta Dawn," 41 top-10 hits, and 23 top-40 albums. Nominated 10 times for a Grammy, this CMA- and ACM-winning artist was awarded the 2016 ACM Pioneer Award for her over 50 years of success in her longstanding musical career.
17 years after the release of her last record, the 60-year-old living legend is set to release a tell-all record, full of wisdom, wit, and heart, produced by three-time Grammy award-winning artist Brandi Carlile and Shooter Jennings, alongside the full-length documentary “Delta Dawn, Then and Now: The Return of Tanya Tucker.” Join us on the journey with this one-and-only living legend.
About Brandy Clark:
The Nashville, Tennessee-based Clark received her first of an impressive six career GRAMMY nominations in 2013 in the Best Country Song category for co-writing the Miranda Lambert number-1 hit "Mama's Broken Heart." Her talent as a storyteller has quickly propelled her into critical acclaim as one of Nashville's best tunesmiths. Subsequently, she began writing songs for Sheryl Crow, The Band Perry, Reba McEntire, LeAnn Rimes, Billy Currington, Darius Rucker, and Kacey Musgraves, to name a few.
In 2013, Clark independently released her own debut album, 12 Stories, which was embraced by music lovers and critics alike, and was subsequently nominated for two GRAMMYs, including Best New Artist and Best Country Album. 12 Stories went on to be named "Best Album of 2013" by The Boston Globe, New York Magazine, NPR, The New York Post, and more. Brandy also won the 2014 CMA Song of the Year Award for "Follow Your Arrow," which she co-wrote with Shane McAnally and Kacey Musgraves, and was also nominated for a CMA New Artist Of The Year that same year.
2016 brought the release of her sophomore album, Big Day In A Small Town, which also garnered two GRAMMY nominations for Best Country Album and Best Country Solo Performance ("Love Can Go To Hell") and once again topped critics' "Best of" lists, including NPR, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and Billboard, among others, thus cementing Clark as one of country music's most talented artists, beloved by fans, critics, and fellow entertainers alike. Famed music critic and author Ann Powers calls Clark "a storyteller of the highest caliber."
This past year, Clark has been honing her craft on the road, playing with the likes of Willie Nelson, Brandi Carlile, Dwight Yoakam, and Sugarland.
