Want to own a piece of country music history? Tanya Tucker is selling off 500 personal items as part of an estate sale auction that kicked off June 16.
Among the available mementos from her life and four-decade-long career are her pink 1992 Harley Davidson Screamin’ Eagle motorcycle, her 1965 green Ford Mustang convertible, a custom-made Yamaha guitar and a “Delta Dawn” bedazzled jacket the onetime teen star wore on her first date in the 1970s. Also included are numerous couture outfits and stage costumes including a custom Nudie suit from 1975, a fringe bikini the country legend wore during the photo shoot for Strong Enough to Bend and a purple spandex jumpsuit worn on the cover of the Tanya Tucker Live album. There’s also plenty of jewelry, accessories, framed posters and other keepsakes. Several of the items were featured in a Tucker exhibit Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum hosted in 2014.
Bidding for all of the items, which Tucker refers to as her “treasures,” started at just $1 each. The auction window closes June 25 at 8 p.m. ET.
Everything But the House is hosting the auction at EBTH.com. A percentage of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, a charity that provides financial assistance to musicians and music industry workers facing financial challenges as a result of illness, disability or age-related problems.
