Portion of the proceeds to benefit the legendary West Hollywood venue
Tanya Tucker is releasing Live From The Troubadour on October 16th via Fantasy Records, the one year anniversary of Tucker’s historic, standing-room only set from which it originates. In October 2019, Tucker was in the midst of resurgent visibility and acclaim generated by her Brandi Carlile and Shooter Jennings produced album While I’m Livin’, released two months earlier – so the brief stand in front of the West Hollywood tastemaker crowd took on a palpable air of significance.
“There are so many people and places hurting right now, and for me, being on the road since I was a kid and knowing these legendary venues like the Troubadour aren’t bringing in a dime right now without performances, it just makes sense to give back. I can’t be with the fans, so this is my love letter to them, a live album with some of those old records, and our new songs from While I’m Livin’,” Tucker shares.
Live From The Troubadour features 15 songs including Tucker’s smash first single “Delta Dawn,” and a cache of her No. 1 country hits such as “Strong Enough To Bend,” “What’s Your Mama’s Name, Child”, “Blood Red and Goin’ Down” and “Would You Lay with Me (In a Field of Stone).” The set also includes a sublime medley of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on Fire” and Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire,” along with six songs from While I’m Livin’, including “Mustang Ridge,” “The Wheels of Laredo,” “Hard Luck” and the poignant, “Bring My Flowers Now.” The album, While I’m Livin’ and the song, “Bring My Flowers Now,” would, a few short month later, win GRAMMY Awards for Best Country Album and Best Country Song, the first GRAMMY wins of Tanya’s illustrious career.
The set will be available on CD and 2 LP. A limited edition pink, black and blue splatter 2 LP will be available via Tucker’s webstore. Each one is numbered and signed by the singer with only one thousand available worldwide. Fans can also purchase the optional While I’m Livin’ turntable mat with 16-ounce felt and custom printed dye sublimation.
Tucker is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this album directly to The Troubadour, including 100% of the revenue generated by the custom Live From The Troubadour poster available at her online store.
