(S.D.)-Wynonna Set To Play Deadwood Mountain Grand
(DEADWOOD, S.D.)-All set to strum her stuff, Wynonna Judd will take to the stage in Deadwood at the Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, February 23rd.
The original Wynonna show, scheduled for August 18th was postponed following a motorcycle accident the day of the show involving Wynonna’s husband, Cactus Moser. Moser is up and touring again following the accident, is back to playing drums in Wynonna’s band and will join her the night of the show.
“The Big Noise and I, including my husband, Cactus Moser, are in great anticipation of returning and finally performing at Deadwood Mountain Grand,” Judd said. “The accident last August that caused us to reschedule was an incredibly trying time for me and my family, but Cactus’ triumphant return to the stage in November of 2012 has us more grateful and full of joy than ever. Can’t wait to see you all.”
Deadwood Mountain Grand sales, marketing, and event director Susan Kightlinger said that the news on Judd’s return, accompanied by Moser, is highly positive and heartwarming.
“We are so excited to have Wynonna coming back to Deadwood,” Kightlinger said. “We’ve had so many of her fans waiting patiently for the rescheduled date.”
With a highly successful country music career that spans more than three decades, Wynonna as lead singer of The Judds and for the last 20 years as a solo artist, counts more than 20 number one hits among her accomplishments, as well as countless Top 10 and country music awards to her credit.
Rising to superstardom in the early 80s with her mother, Naomi Judd, on the strength of chart toppers like “Mama He’s Crazy,” “Why Not Me,” and “Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout the Good Old Days),” The Judds were unstoppable for the rest of the decade, picking up multiple GRAMMY, CMA and ACM Awards and selling more than 20 million albums along the way.
In the midst of her highly successful solo career and several new projects, Wynonna is also recording her eighth studio album due out later this year, the latest in a string of hit albums that started with her quintuple platinum 1992 solo debut, Wynonna, which spawned three number one hits, including “She Is His Only Need,” “I Saw the Light” and “No One Else on Earth,” which all reached number one on the U.S. country singles charts, as did 1996’s “To Be Loved by You.”
In 1994, Wynonna received the coveted Top Female Vocalist of the Year trophy at the ACM Awards, and Rolling Stone called her “the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline.” Engaging the soulful, bluesy side of her voice only hinted at with The Judds, Wynonna went on to sell more than 10 million albums, became a best-selling author, actor and is now busy writing the next chapter of her legendary career.
