About Brandi Carlile: Three-time GRAMMY Award-winning singer, songwriter, performer and producer Brandi Carlile is currently in the midst of a landmark year following the release of her Grammy Award-winning album, By The Way, I Forgive You. Produced by Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings and recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, the album includes ten new songs written by Carlile and longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth, including “The Joke.” Of her breakthrough performance of the song on the live GRAMMY broadcast, The New York Times proclaimed, “Carlile’s vocals were robust, ragged, full of sneer and hope. On a night curiously light on impressive singing, it was an uncomplicated, genuine, cleansing thrill,” while the Los Angeles Times called it, “triumphant” and Rolling Stone described it as, “breathtaking.”

Over the course of their acclaimed career, Carlile and her band have released six albums, including 2017's Cover Stories: Brandi CarlileCelebrates 10 Years of the Story (An Album to Benefit War Child), which features 14 artists including Dolly Parton, Adele, Pearl Jam, Kris Kristofferson, The Avett Brothers, Margo Price and Jim James – with a forward written by Barack Obama – covering the songs on Carlile’s 2007 breakthrough album The Story. Profits from the project benefit Children in Conflict via Brandi Carlile’s Looking Out Foundation as part of its ongoing campaign to raise $1 million for children impacted by war.

About Tanya Tucker: At the age of 13, the original female country outlaw Tanya Tucker was the youngest female to grace the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine with the message, “You’re Gonna Hear From Me.” Dubbed as the female Elvis, she achieved mainstream chart topping success with 15 number 1 hits including "Delta Dawn," 41 top 10 hits, and 23 top 40 albums. Nominated 10 times for a Grammy, this CMA and ACM winning artist was awarded the 2016 ACM Pioneer Award for her over 50 years of success in her longstanding musical career.
17 years after the release of her last record, the 60 year old living legend is set to release a tell-all record, full of wisdom, wit, and heart, produced by 3 time Grammy award winning artist Brandi Carlile and Shooter Jennings, alongside the full length documentary “Delta Dawn, Then and Now: The Return of Tanya Tucker.” Join us on the journey with this one and only living legend.
