Legendary country music icon Tanya Tucker will release Live From The Troubadour on October 16, 2020, the one-year anniversary of Tanya’s historic, standing-room only set from which it originates.

As someone who's been center stage for over 50 years, Tanya is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of this album directly to the Troubadour.
