Wynonna Judd

Iconic Country Music Singer, Songwriter

Wynonna first rose to fame in the 1980's alongside her mother, Naomi, as one half of the country music duo The Judds. Credited with 'single-handedly saving country music,' according to TIME magazine, their kitchen table harmonies and home-spun rapport was a breath of fresh air to a stagnant country music scene at the time. 

Their cross-generational appeal, powerful vocal interplay, and dedication to family love and rural values would catch on with fans of all musical genres, and win them CMA Country Duo of the year honors in 1985, 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990 and 1991. Five-time Grammy Award winners, The Judds sold more than 20 million records, earning multiple gold, platinum, and multi-platinum status, and making them one of the most successful musical pairings of all time. 

After The Judds disbanded in 1991, Wynonna began a solo career, telling honest tales that speak to the heart; classic American songs of love, loss and survival written to heal wounds and soften the blows of a rollicking country journey, reminding her to brake for rock, folk, gospel, R&B, and blues along the way. Wynonna's keen instincts for finding the essence of a song have earned her a reputation for making a wide range of musical choices her 'own.' 
For Wynonna, who Rolling Stone magazine once referred to as "the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline," stats alone don't do her solo career justice. She's always pushed the boundaries of the country music repertoire. Impressive credentials like more than 10 million albums sold, 6 platinum-plus/gold-plus albums, 16 Top Ten hits, a Top Female Vocalist Of The Year Award from the Academy of Country Music, and many sold-out tours in the last 17 years - all come in second to her amazing ability to resonate with fans from all walks of life. 

"I'm blessed with the greatest fans in the world," she says. "Even when I'm recording, I try to imagine them having a bad day and my music coming on and making them stop for a second, and hopefully feel something that they otherwise may have been too busy to notice." 

While recognized mostly for her musical work, Wynonna has also pursued other interests, including acting and writing. Her 2005 autobiography, Coming Home To Myself, also shared her many struggles over adversity throughout her career. The book was a staple of The New York Times bestseller list, and served as a perfect companion piece to her utobiographical musical journey, Her Story: Scenes From A Lifetime, a double-live gold-plus certified CD and DVD, which hit #2 on the Top Country Album charts. 

Honored for her work on behalf of others, Wynonna received the USO's Merit Award for service to all divisions of the United States Armed Forces and teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to record "Heart of America", with Michael McDonald and Eric Benet which in turn helped raise over $90 million dollars for victims of natural disasters to the Gulf Coast. She continues to bring attention to the global emergency of AIDS as United States Ambassador for YouthAIDS.

In the summer of 2009, following a Judds performance at the CMA Music Festival for 50,000 fans, the reaction sparked The Judds to consider reuniting for a tour one last time and returning to the studio to record new songs. That tour became the "The Judds: The Last Encore," which traveled to 18 markets during the 2010 holiday season and featured new Judds music, Judds classics and holiday favorites. Their preparations for the tour are featured on their own series on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). 

Whether she's touring, writing music, or being a mom, Wynonna has remained one of country's most recognizable and beloved music icons.
