Wynonna Judd: Concert from My Place

(Rochester, NY) – Join Wynonna Judd and her band at her place just outside Nashville, Tennessee, as they perform classics, old hits and new selections. In between songs, Wynonna and her husband, multi-instrumentalist and producer Cactus Moser, share stories and are joined by five-time Grammy Award-winner Brandi Carlile and singer-songwriter Waylon Payne. Wynonna Judd: Concert from My Place premieres Saturday, June 19, 2021 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

 Praised by Rolling Stone as “the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline,” Wynonna Judd was born into poverty in rural Kentucky. She first rose to fame as one half of legendary country duo The Judds, which she launched with her mother in the early 1980s. Over the ensuing decade, the pair released six studio albums that yielded an astonishing five Grammy Awards, 14 number one singles, and sales of over 30 million records. In 1992, Wynonna embarked on a solo career with her five-time platinum debut album Wynonna, which established her as a critical and commercial powerhouse in her own right. The New York Times said that she “demonstrates that a country performer can explore vibrant pop, deep gospel, and straightforward rock and still make sense even to country traditionalists.”
