Facts About Brandon Flowers’ Wife

1. Mundkowsky Met Flowers at a Store

Brandon Flowers and Tana Mundkowsky had their first encounter in 2001 at a thrift store by the name Buffalo Exchange in Las Vegas. According to him, he was 21 at the time, while Tana was around 20. Brandon had visited the store, together with his fellow singer, Dave, to get some supplies for their first gig as a band. It was in the process of hunting he spotted Tana. What stood out was her dress, which, though it looked weird to him, gave him the impression that this lady must be a bit cool to hang out with. She was putting on a bootleg Joy Division t-shirt with a Mickey Mouse image on it and a pink trench coat.

Then, working for the US designer Betsey Johnson, Brandon perceived her to be quite different, creative, full of life, and the best woman for him.  She also worked as a manager at Urban Outfitters and later worked as a school teacher.

For their first date, the love birds visited an all-night record store where Brandon, though sounded cool, quizzed Tana Mundkowsky on several music artists, from Bowie to the Smiths and Leonard Cohen. I passed when I told him I had the import version of a Bowie album. Brandon recounts that they had similar music tastes, which helped cement their bond even more.

After dating for four long years, the duo agreed it was time to make things official. They got married on the 2nd of August, 2005, in a private ceremony on the island of O’ahu in Hawaii.

2. Mother of Three

Together with her husband, Tana Mundkowsky has three wonderful boys: Ammon (b. July 14, 2007), Gunnar (b. July 28, 2009), and Henry (b. March 9, 2011). Together, the family lives in Las Vegas, Nevada. They also have a home in Park City, Utah. Many still wonder why the couple waited two whole years to bear their first son. Well, as it turns out, the Flowers are quite a team of caring parents who first experimented with their parenting abilities with two adopted kids before having their own. Don’t worry, they’re not the kids, you know. They are rather furry friends who became part of the family long before Ammon was born. 

3. She Adopted Two Dogs As Soon as She Became Mrs

While many wives can’t wait to have babies of their own, Tana’s was quite different. You see, after moving into a house in Henderson, just 10 miles away from the Las Vegas strip, the family adopted two dogs as a rehearsal for their parenting gig. A husky they named Nikita and a poodle.

4. She has Songs Written for Her  

As a token of their love, Brandon Flowers wrote several songs for his wife. One of which was Some Kind of Love. It came at the time she was suffering from a high form of a disorder we’ll reveal in our next point.  

5. Tana Mundkowsky Suffered from Complex PTSD

We’re not sure why, but Tana Mundkowsky has suffered rare cases of Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. This has set her on the path of suicide one time in June 2019, when her husband had to cancel his attendance at concerts to be with her. Tana Mundkowsky, he said, had begun to harbor suicidal thoughts.

6. She is a Member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

Tana Munkowsky and her husband are staunch Mormons. The family is even featured in a promotional video on the church’s website.
