Country fans, prepare your bids! Tanya Tucker is auctioning off some personal mementos from her career, and it’s all for a good cause.
On Wednesday (June 15), The Tennessean confirmed the “Delta Dawn” singer is selling approximately 500 items in an online auction through Everything But the House. The auction started on Thursday morning (June 16) and will last for nine days.
The auction is part of several Tucker has planned through Everything But the House. Two additional auctions will take place this summer, during which Tucker will auction off 1,000 more mementos from her career.
Some of the featured items in Tucker’s first auction include her 1992 pink Harley Davidson Screamin’ Eagle motorcycle, the denim jacket from her “Delta Dawn” ensemble, and the fringe bikini she wore for the photoshoot for “Strong Enough to Bend.”
Part of the proceeds from the auctions will go to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, which helps provide financial assistance to musicians who are struggling due to illness, disability, or old age. As Tucker told Everything But the House, it’s a cause she holds close to her heart:
“A few years ago I went through a difficult surgery on my vocal chords. Fortunately I was in a position to get the specialized care necessary to continue my career, but not everyone is in this position. This is one reason why I’m extremely excited to be working with EBTH to support Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.”
From a car, to jewelry, to a pair of platform shoes signed by Charlie Daniels, there’s a little something for every country fan in Tucker’s auction. She told Everything But the House that after having such a successful career, she’s happy to share some pieces of it with her fans.
“I’ve spent my life collecting these treasures,” she said. “I look forward to others having the opportunity to enjoy them as much as I have.“
We’re so glad Tucker is sharing some of her career mementos with her fans!
