(Thanks, quarantine/postponed photo shoots.] As we wind down the bright and beautiful Bakersfield collection, we are over-the-moon excited about our upcoming summer line, Willie’s Picnic.

She’s bucked the rules, she’s defied the odds, and at 61, she’s just getting started. An outlaw attitude and a voice like honey-coated gravel, there has never been anyone quite like Tanya Tucker.
