Reviews

  • "Tucker’s career in the spotlight since she hit #1 with “Delta Dawn” at age 13 could alone fill biographic volumes, but her past only plays as context here to the more personal contemporary story of the artist restarting at 60."
    - Austin Chronicle
  • "What comes through most of all in Horans empathetic filmmaking and Carliles constant reassurances is an honest love for Tucker."
    - RogerEbert.com
  • "It documents sessions where everything that could go right does. But the doc doesn’t get dull just because things get so darn agreeable."
    - Variety
