About Wynonna Judd
As the younger half of the mother/daughter duo the Judds, Wynonna Judd found success beyond measure. But that partnership came to a halt when, in 1990, her mother was diagnosed with hepatitis C and retired. Two years later, Wynonna released her first solo effort. Wynonna sold over five million copies, giving the singer the highest-selling debut album by a female at that time. Tell Me Why and Revelations followed. 1997 saw the release of both a greatest hits album (Collection) and her fourth studio effort, The Other Side -- the first in her career to fail to chart a Top 10 hit. On New Year's Eve 1999, the Judds got back together for a legendary millennium concert in Phoenix. Barely into the new year, a rejuvenated Wynonna recorded some songs with her mother, which she included with her fifth solo album, New Day Dawning, as a bonus disc. In 2003, Wynonna celebrated 20 years in the music business by releasing What the World Needs Now, which returned the singer to the top of the charts. To mark 25 years in the business, Wynonna released Sing: Chapter 1, a collection of bluesy interpretations of standards from various genres.
