Tucker put up 488 items in the first of four sales that will run throughout the summer. Among the 16 leather jackets being offered is the studded Michael Hoban version Tucker wore while performing on the Super Bowl 28 halftime show (1994). Vintage clothing items include the fringe bikini she wore during the photo shoot for "Strong Enough to Bend," a denim jacket from her "Delta Dawn" ensemble, embellished by Tucker and worn on her first date; and a vintage purple spandex jumpsuit, worn on the cover of the "Tanya Tucker Live" album.

Tucker's pink Screamin' Eagle Harley-Davidson and a 1965 Ford Mustang convertible with low mileage are also up for bid.

A percentage of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, an organization that provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians and industry workers facing illness, disability or age-related problems.

CD reviews for Tanya Tucker

My Turn CD review - My Turn
It took a long time and a lot of spins and even a bit of research to find out what was missing from this new Tanya Tucker album. The project is obviously a heartfelt one and not just designed to cash in on a continuing trend of resurrecting old songs and giving them a new, glossy paint job. Tucker has recorded a dozen songs for this disc that were favorite of her late father Beau. She certainly wasn't afraid to take on the giants. The disc has Hank Williams' (Lovesick Blues ), Buck »»»
Tanya
The old growl and attitude is still there, perhaps just a bit less threatening or convincing, but there is a softer, more sensitive side that comes through on Tanya Tucker's new disc. This is the first release in five years for Tucker and her first on her new Tuckertime Records label. "Old Weakness" starts the disc in a manner befitting her chip-on-the-shoulder legacy. But her tone softens almost immediately "Oh What A Love" and continues through much of the rest of the disc for songs like "We »»»
Complicated
Tanya Tucker's latest is not that complicated. This is , in fact, a disc from an artists maturing quite gracefully. Tucker's biggest problem in recent albums was that she tended to be so gravelly and affected, it became grating. Not here. There's an earthiness to her vocals previously missing. The lead-off "Ridin' Out the Heartache" finds her wringing the emotion out of the words without overdoing it. She shows tenderness on "By the Way" where she sings "By the way/I know it's not easy/For You to say I'm the one. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Kristofferson gives insight, but no easy answers – When they say music gets better with age, they're not always just talking about songs alone; sometimes they're also referring to the listener. When Kris Kristofferson sings, "Well, I woke up Sunday morning/With no way to hold my head that didn't hurt," to smartly open "Sunday Mornin' Comin' Down," he... »»»
Concert Review: No sugarcoating, Welch dishes out an experience – Gillian Welch (accompanied, as always, by master guitarist David Rawlings), celebrated her "The Harrow & The Harvest" album with a powerful night of music. She apologized many times for the utter unhappiness expressed through this album's songs, admitting it's "not the most chipper album" at one point.... »»»

Hillman bides his time Legends don't come any more legendary than Chris Hillman.

With Stanley and Watson, sound isn't elementary Those aware of the late Owsley "Bear" Stanley likely know him for one of two reasons - his pioneering work manufacturing lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) in San Francisco during the mid-to-late 1960s and his role as an innovative sound engineer. Most notably, Bear worked...... »»»
First Cigarette CD review - First Cigarette
The stunning vocal of Travis Meadows on the opening track, "Sideways," brims with honesty, pain and hard-earned wisdom as he offers a blend of confession and advice, stimulated by an experience at an adolescent addiction treatment center. Meadows, like many, is one of those Nashville songwriters ("Riser" for Dierks Bentley and "What We Ain't Got" for Jake Owen), but is finding his own voice relatively late in life. »»»
The Long Awaited Album CD review - The Long Awaited Album
When last we visited a new album from Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers, 2011's "Rare Bird Alert," we found a cohesive, focused collection of bluegrass; it was an expansive, artistic creation that only benefited the bluegrass community. A subsequent live album (strikingly entitled "Live") presented a continued refinement of this pairing's chemistry.  »»»

Billy Strings. It takes a lot of nerve to adopt such a nom de plume (in this case nom de guerre might be more appropriate) in the bluegrass world, but Billy Strings is up to the challenge, and more. Strings (real name William Apostol) grew up in Michigan, surrounded by musicians. »»»

Jon Langford shifts musical gears as effortlessly as a European race car driver on a Grand Prix course. Looking at the totality of his career (The Mekons, Waco Brothers, Skull Orchard, the Three Johns, Wee Hairy Beasties, Pine Valley Cosmonauts, Bad Luck Jonathan, God knows what else), it hardly seems as though one peg could have fit into all those oddly shaped holes... »»»
