Wynonna Judd—half of Grammy-award winning duo the Judds—discusses career triumphs and traumas and performs with her husband and bandmate Cactus Moser during this 2019 interview at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
Wynonna reminisces about performing with her mother Naomi Judd first as the Soap Sisters, and about Naomi’s life-changing chance meeting with producer Brent Maher, who jumpstarted the Judds’ career. She discusses her relationship with Naomi, shares struggles she had to overcome during her rise to country stardom and beyond, and talks about Cactus Moser’s debilitating motorcycle accident in 2012. Wynonna also reacts to a rare 1989 video clip from the Museum’s archives, in which she and Naomi perform their hit “Let Me Tell You About Love” with Carl Perkins.
Among the songs performed by Wynonna Judd and Cactus Moser: the Judds’ 1983 debut single “Had a Dream (For the Heart)” and their #1 hit “Love Is Alive”; “What It Takes,” from Wynonna’s self-titled 1992 solo debut; and blues song “I’m a King Bee,” which she often covers with her band Wynonna & the Big Noise.
Presented in support of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibition “The Judds: Dream Chasers” (August 10, 2018, through July 14, 2019).
