Tanya Tucker evacuates Malibu home due to area fires
Monday, October 22, 2007
– Wildfires in California caused Tanya Tucker to have her teenage daughter evacuate their home in Malibu, one of the areas worst hit by the fires.
Tucker, who is currently in Las Vegas, said in a statement released late Sunday night, "My 18-year-old daughter, Presley, had to leave the house with our four dogs. We woke up in horror this morning. It was very chaotic."
Soon after Presley was evacuated, fire helicopters doused the residence with water to help keep the fire from spreading. "All my stage clothing, boots, belts and wardrobe is in that house. I have so much memorabilia since I just moved from Nashville to Malibu," said Tucker.
Fires have hit southern California due to a drought.

Every song is a gem, and every song might be describing some aspect of her own life. Brandi Carlile and Shooter Jennings produced the album, and Jennings played piano almost every ...
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 ...
