Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Wynonna Judd made her mark in the music industry as a celebrated country singer, while at the same time living with a domineering and eccentric mother, enduring battles with her weight, and committing to a life in the public eye. Judd and her mother Naomi shot to fame in the 1980s as the Grammy Award-winning duo, The Judds. Their homespun harmonies and heartfelt lyrics, evidenced by their classic country tracks such as "Why Not Me" (1984) and "Love Can Build A Bridge" (1990), won the hearts of millions. After her mother retired from music due to health issues, Judd achieved similar success as a solo artist, beginning with the release of her hit debut album, Wynonna (1992). Her professional accomplishments were only half of Judd's story, as the other half involved the turbulent relationship she had with her mother and collaborator. Armed with an unflinching, honest personality, Judd shared her personal struggles and constant friction with her mother as a frequent guest on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" (syndicated, 1986-2011). In 2011, Judd and her mother reunited for a long awaited comeback tour and the documentary series "The Judds" (OWN), which gave an insightful and intriguing look into the life of the...
