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

The Return of Tanya Tucker 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, experimenting with, and refining of this new music mixes with all that came before, and the film uses rare archival footage and photographs to delve into Tucker’s history, beginning in a single-wide trailer in Seminole, Texas.
