The Return Of Tanya Tucker, the film about the exciting comeback of the beloved country singer, is now in theaters nationwide.
Directed by Kathlyn Horan, the motion picture follows Tucker’s reemergence after not making a record in nearly 20 years. Alongside Brandi Carlile—who produced Tucker’s 2019 album While I’m Livin’ with Shooter Jennings—Tucker makes a record that would go on to win a Grammy for Best Country Album in 2020, catapulting the legend back into the spotlight she deserved.
Using rare archival footage and photographs, the film dives into Tucker’s history from her single-wide trailer in Seminole, Texas to becoming a young star.
A highlight of the film includes Tucker taking the idea for the chorus “Bring My Flowers Now,” a tune from the album that won the Grammy for Best Country Song in 2020, and forming the centerpiece for the record.
“I had a chorus and I couldn’t get anything else for years. Brandi came in the control room and said, ‘T, let’s finish that song idea you had for so long.’ As soon as we finished writing the song, I think we went right to the vocal booth. The band came in, and they pushed record,” the country star shares of the process.
The Return Of Tanya Tucker has been featured at film festivals in Austin, Toronto, Nashville, and more.
