Happy birthday to me! 30th of May, 2014 was the 50th birthday bash of Wynonna Judd. Her family started from the simplest of beginnings and made it big. She and her mom Naomi started singing for audiences some 34 years ago. And the rest as they say is history.
They have been through tough times. And the family has faced challenges both internal and external. Yet somehow they made it through.
Wynonna was originally named Christina. But later on a male friend of the mother and daughter named the little one Wynonna and it kind of stuck. She later on lived it up in California. While in the sunshine state, she made friends with Mariska Hargitay.
She started wearing a leather jacket due to U2’s Bono’s influence upon her. Later on in life, Wynonna would compose a song together with Bono.
Wynonna Judd had crushes on many musicians (Bono being one of them). Dwight Yoakam was another person she admired beyond belief. She still thinks that she would have gotten hitched with Yoakam had they not drifted apart due to their high-octane careers.
She has been through her list of highs and lows over the generation that spawned from the 80s to the Noughties. With over three marriages and four engagements, Wynonna has seen it all. She is a country musician par excellence.
Wynonna often belts out some very memorable songs and her mother Naomi accompanies her in her shows and performances. She is a singer with a difference.
And while she has been having some very tempestuous relationships in matters of spousal changeover, all of America loves her for her characteristic manner and tunes that entertain and create a surplus of enjoyment in the audience. She deserves a standing ovation on her birthday for she has reached a nifty fifty!
