Tanya Tucker

2017 Tennessee Craft Week Honorary Chair

“I am so pleased to be involved with Tennessee Craft and support the work they do – training, nurturing and building the reputation of craft artists,” said Ms. Tucker. “Tennessee is my home – there is such a creative spirit about the people here! The rich tradition of music, arts, and fine handmade craft attracts more national attention each year and continues to build the reputation of local artists.”

Tucker, the recipient of numerous awards, including two CMAs, two ACMs, and three CMT awards, is known for her sultry voice and vivacious stage presence. She is one of the most admired and respected female vocalists in the country music genre. Tucker continues to dazzle audiences across the U.S. and Canada.

Tucker kicks off this week-long focus on crafts in late September and will preside as the voice of Tennessee Craft Week, October 6-15, 2017.

Gene-Johnson_Circle Gene Johnson, Diamond Rio – 2016

“I was attending college to become a teacher (woodworking of course) when I got a call to play with a professional recording band. Music won out, but my love for woodworking, turning, and furniture has remained a passionate part of my life.” – Gene Johnson


Tennessee First Lady Crissy Haslam – 2015

“Tennessee has a rich craft history that has been passed down from one generation to the next. Handmade traditions can be lost if they are not appreciated.” – Crissy Haslam
