Tanya Tucker Exhibit Coming to Country Music Hall of Fame
Tanya Tucker‘s remarkable life and career will be the subject of an upcoming exhibit at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville.
‘Tanya Tucker: Strong Enough to Bend’ is set to open at the Hall of Fame on Nov. 14. The exhibit will use photos, artifacts and personal items to chronicle Tucker’s carer, which began in 1972 at the age of 13 with the release of her first hit, ‘Delta Dawn.’
Tucker went on to score a long string of hits that included ‘Would You Lay With Me (in a Field of Stone),’ ‘Lizzie and the Rainman,’ ‘San Antonio Stroll’ and ‘Strong Enough to Bend,’ among many others. In 1991 she won the CMA award for Female Vocalist of the Year.
Her sometimes tumultuous personal life has also been the subject of much coverage over the years, from her very public relationship with Glen Campbell — who was 22 years older than her — to her stint in the Betty Ford Center for treatment of substance abuse.
The Hall of Fame’s Tanya Tucker exhibit is scheduled to run through May of 2015.
