– Tanya Tucker is selling out - well at least some of her memorabilia in an auction
that ends this Saturday.

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.

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.
