“A few years ago I went through a difficult surgery on my vocal chords. Fortunately I was in a position to get the specialized care necessary to continue my career, but not everyone is in this position. This is one reason why I’m extremely excited to be working with EBTH to support Sweet Relief Musicians Fund with a percentage of the sale proceeds,” says Tucker. “I have spent my life collecting these treasures. I look forward to others having the opportunity to enjoy them as much as I have.”
The highly-anticipated sale will feature 500 curated items including designer stage costumes worn on tour, at award shows and on photo and video shoots. Several items were featured in her 2014 Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum exhibit, Tanya Tucker: Strong Enough to Bend. Among the latter: a 1970’s Delta Dawn jumpsuit, an Azzedine Alaïa black leather bustier and fringed mini skirt, a 1975 custom Nudie suit, and a Fernando Wang beaded gown. A pink 1992 Harley Davidson Screamin’ Eagle from the Hall of Fame exhibit is also included in the sale. (promotions.ebth.com/tanya-tucker-ebth-press-preview)
