In a day full of hot news, it doesn’t get any hotter than this for me! As a lifelong nearly obsessive fan of The Judds, finding out about Wynonna‘s first new music video in 14 years in the same moment you hear that The Judds are releasing their All-Time Greatest Hits on June 30th, my head and heart are both in a whirl. The mother-daughter duo has been hands-down one of the most sensational acts in country music for decades and there’s no reason why their music should live on in today’s Nashville landscape. Let’s dig in deeper as we take a closer listen to Wynonna’s sultry, bluesy “Keeps Me Alive” which just sends chills down my spine. From Wynonna’s press team: Wynonna Judd releases her first music video in 14 years, “Keeps Me Alive.” Along with her band, The Big Noise, this special project also features American guitarist Derek Trucks. The visually captivating video was shot at the historic Oaklands Mansion in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and directed by Todd Cassetty of HiFi Fusion. Over the weekend (June 3), the video premiered on AMC’s after The Son which stars Pierce Brosnan. More about The Judds All-Time Greatest Hits: Together, Country Music icons Wynonna and Naomi Judd made musical history throughout their career receiving eight Gold and eight Platinum records, selling over 20 million albums and scoring twenty Top 10 hits between 1984-1990. Now, Curb Records is excited to bring fans the ultimate collection of those years together. The Judds – All-Time Greatest Hits will be released on Friday, June 30 – and will feature each of the classic hits that helped to make them a household name on Country Radio in the 1980s and 1990s. “Some things continue to get better with time, like fine wine and the Judds music,” says Naomi Judd. “I’m so proud that our music has stood the test of time. It makes my heart smile when I turn on Country Radio and I can sing along with our hits.” The twenty-one song set will feature each of the duo’s top ten hits, as well as “You Can’t Go Home Again (Flies On The Butter),” a recording from 2011. Beginning with the classic #1 hit “Mama, He’s Crazy” in 1984, and continuing through 1991’s “One Hundred and Two,” the duo established a career that will stand with one of the top duets in Country Music history. Fourteen times the duo topped the Billboard Country Singles chart, and each of their five studio albums were certified Gold or Platinum. Along with their sales and airplay success, The Judds also dominated the awards shows like no artist before their time. Starting in 1984, the duo netted nine CMA Awards, including a run from 1985-1991 as either Vocal Duo or Vocal Group of the Year. Their trophies also include the 1985 Single of the Year “Why Not Me,” which is also included on The Judds – All Time Greatest Hits.

Los Angeles Times‘ writer Randy Lewis notes, “Singer Wynonna Judd opens a new chapter in her long career with her forthcoming album Wynonna & The Big Noise, her first with a full band of her own…the sound, however, is a departure, more stripped to the bone and rootsy, more contemporary American…” Watch the “Things That I Lean On” video here: [youtube LtCwb5D1uag]. Of the song and experience of working with Isbell, WYNONNA shares, “When I began my journey to self-discovery in 2003, I got involved in 12 Steps. So when I heard the words in this song [“Things That I Lean On”] — ’12 Steps and the 23rd Psalm’ — I knew they spoke to everyone who’s trying to be perfect in their program. Our theme is ‘progress, not perfection.’ The spirituality of imperfection is what this song is about. But with Jason Isbell, our voices are so blended, it is perfect.” Album producer, drummer for The Big Noise and husband to WYNONNA, Cactus Moser adds: “I’ve played this song for grown men. They look me in the eye and I watch tears come down their cheeks, just from listening to this song.” For more information on WYNONNA & THE BIG NOISE, visit: www.wynonnaandthebignoise.com www.facebook.com/wynonnajudd www.twitter.com/WynonnaMusic www.instagram.com/wynonnajudd Performance Videos: “Things That I Lean On”: [youtube LtCwb5D1uag] “Ain’t No Thing”: [youtube HdN8esuHT-g] “You Make My Heart Beat Too Continue reading

Wynonna Judd’s Husband Had His Leg Amputated After Crash. According to TMZ, Wynonna Judd’s husband had his left leg amputated following a horrific motorcycle crash in South Dakota this weekend. Judd’s rep told them, Michael Scott Moser “severed” his leg in the crash. When he was transported to a hospital in Rapid City, SD doctors determined it was necessary to amputate the leg above the knee. The rep also says Moser had to undergo surgery on his hand, which is of particular concern because he is the drummer in Judd’s band. Judd’s rep tells them, “Judd and Moser appreciate all of the quick medical and police responders as well as the hospital staff and well-wishes from family, friends and fans.” We at CMNB send prayers and positive thoughts to Moser, Judd and all of their family and friends!
