The Judds became one of the most celebrated success stories in country music history. In just six short years, they had sold more than twenty million records worldwide and had won over sixty industry awards including five Grammys, nine Country Music Association Awards and eight Billboard Music Awards. In 1991, Naomi Judd retired from the singing duo because she had contracted chronic hepatitis during her earlier nursing career. At the dawn of the new millennium, The Judds reunited for a four-month triumphant tour in 2000, playing to over 250,000 people in some 36 shows. It was one of the Top 10 grossing country music tours of the year and two Judds' discs were released as well as a CBS television concert special to celebrate the reunited power of the duo. The duo was nominated for the prestigious Academy of Country Music's Top Vocal Duo of the Year in 2001, after a ten-year absence from the awards show circuit. In 2002, Wynonna and Naomi were named two of the "40 Greatest Women of Country Music" by CMT, landing at #11 on the coveted list. The Judds are universally loved and still regarded as country music royalty for music fans around the globe.
Wynonna began the second amazing success story of her life and signed her first solo record deal in 1992. With vast critical acclaim, Wynonna, selling over five million units, became the highest-selling debut album by a female artist at the time. A musical force like none other before her, Wynonna followed her wildly successful debut with the multi-platinum disc, Tell Me Why, as well as with the platinum-certified Revelations. Her greatest hits compilation, Collection, was released in 1997, the year which also found her gold record, The Other Side, flying from the shelves. Wynonna burst into 2000 with a torrent of unleashed creativity that is expressed on New Day Dawning. It was on this record that she marked the first time role of producer as well as the director of the widest stylistic scope she had ever attempted. Wynonna released her sixth solo studio album, What the World Needs Now Is Love, on Curb Records in 2003. The album debuted impressively at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart in August, her third solo project to do so, stretching her career into its third decade! Her new single, "Heaven Help Me," is now at country radio stations everywhere. The first single, "What the World Needs," was a Top 15 hit at country radio and was honored by Radio and Records Magazine as the most added country single of the year. Billboard raves about Wy, "She unleashes those signature pipes on this positive anthem; a fine single from one of the format's most distinctive talents." Radio and Records had this to say, "Here comes the coolest chick on the block armed with one of the best songs of the year. She can outsing just about anyone. 'What the World Needs' is truly a worthy spotlight from one of the best vocalists we've ever had in this format."
Wynonna contributed a song entitled "You Are" for the 20th Century Fox feature film, "Someone Like You," which is seen during the movie's end credits. It marked the first time she wrote, produced and recorded a song for a major motion picture. The Hollywood Reporter and Variety heralded the song as a strong contender for the Academy Award category of Best Original Song in January 2002. In the last two years, Wynonna recorded duets with R&B star Kelly Price and pop icon Huey Lewis. She also made her long-awaited debut at the Grand Ole Opry, performed for our troops on four occasions at Ft. Campbell, sang at the Superbowl as well as at the Paralympics in Salt Lake City.
In April 2002, Wynonna joined Sting, James Taylor, Elton John, Patti Labelle and Smokey Robinson at the 11th Annual Rainforest Foundation Benefit at Carnegie Hall. The crowd felt in tune with the magic moment of the night as Sting and Wynonna performed "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling." Wynonna also endorsed the "Got Milk?" campaign with their first-ever national radio campaign (spotlighted by The New York Times) and wrote and recorded a song for the Todd Beamer tribute album, Let's Roll, now available in stores. In addition, Wynonna remade the Elvis classic, "Burning Love," which is featured prominently in the blockbuster Disney animated DVD/home video, "Lilo and Stitch." She also wrote, produced and performed the theme song for Erin Brockovich's new reality series, "Final Justice," now airing every Friday night on Lifetime.
In January 2003, Wynonna was the keynote speaker at the Country Cares Seminar for St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. She also entertained an industry crowd in February 2003 with blues legend, B.B. King, as part of the MusiCares Person of the Year Gala, honoring her friend, Bono. Wynonna recently inducted Queen into the prestigious Songwriters Hall of Fame, an event at which she performed a scorching "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" with the legendary band. She also reprised her successful role as "Audrey" on the CBS hit, "Touched by an Angel," in April 2003. Wy is currently an active participant in the national Asthma Action America Campaign, the 'Free from Pain' promotion (for arthritic dogs) and was recently nominated for the 2003 Academy of Country Music's Humanitarian of the Year Award. She was also the first country artist to ever serve as Grand Marshal for the Indy 500 in 2003.
Wynonna has accumulated sales totals in excess of nine million units as well as several major industry awards including the coveted Female Vocalist of the Year in 1994 by the Academy of Country Music and thirteen top ten hits on the charts. Respected by the millions of fans who are drawn to her music, Wynonna's luminous career has certainly grown to levels once thought unimaginable. And, it's only the beginning: incomparable, inspired and imaginative, this phenomenal twenty-year veteran is about to change the rules all over again!
