Judd is one of the most recognizable names in country music to date. She and her late mother, Naomi Judd, rose to fame in the '80s with their duo The Judds. The group has won five Grammy Awards, and their hits include "Love is Alive," "Have Mercy," "Chance of Heart," and more. 

Judd then went on to have a successful solo career, releasing 8 studio albums. Her hits include "She Is His Only Need," "I Saw The Light," "No One Else on Earth," and more.  

On April 30, 2022, Naomi died by suicide at the age of 76, a few weeks before she and her daughter were set to start The Judds:The Final Tour. Now, Judd is keeping her mother's memory near to her heart as she ventures on her national solo tour, Back to Wy. She's also set to be honored with the inaugural Country Champion Award at the first-ever People's Choice Country Awards airing live on September 28 at 8/7c across NBC and Peacock, from the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Wynonna opened up about touring again after her mother's sudden death. "It healed me, and I didn’t expect that. I really went out with a full heart for the fans and a broken one for my personal experience. And the two just intertwined in a way that I wasn’t expecting. You go out and you do tours and you think, “Oh, this is going to be about the music, and this is going to be about the celebration of the herstory that mom and I had together.” And then all of a sudden it just knocks you over because the support and the love was so strong," she said.
