Wynonna Judd first made her mark on country music more than three decades ago. In the '80s, the teenage Wynonna and her mother, Naomi, performed together as The Judds, one of the most successful country music duos of all time.

Their breakout hit, "Had a Dream (For the Heart)," launched the duo into full-fledged stardom. From 1984 to 1989, they achieved a string of No. 1 hits, including "Why Not Me," "Mama He's Crazy," "Give a Little Love," and "Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days)." Throughout the course of their career, the legendary duo won five Grammy Awards, eight Academy of Country Music Awards, nine Country Music Association awards, and sold more than 20 million records in the U.S.

In the early '90s, Wynonna's success continued as she transitioned into her solo career. In 1992, her debut multi-platinum certified album, "Wynonna," skyrocketed to No. 1, and featured three No. 1 singles, "I Saw The Light," "She Is His Only Need," and "No One Else On Earth." One year later she released "Tell Me Why," another chart-topping album, which contained five consecutive Top 10 hits.

In 1999, The Judds reunited for a special New Year's Eve concert to ring in the new millennium, after which, they embarked on a mother-daughter reunion tour and recorded four new songs for Wynonna's "New Day Dawning" album.

Wynonna's band, The Big Noise, was formed in 2013. Last year, they released their first album, "Wynonna & The Big Noise," which debuted at No. 14 on the country charts and reached the Billboard 200.

Once dubbed by Rolling Stone as "the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline," Wynonna's rich and commanding voice has sold over 30 million albums worldwide. Today, Wynonna & The Big Noise tour around the country, singing more than three decades worth of hits for multigenerational audiences and fans.
