ABOUT WYNONNA & THE BIG NOISE
Respected by the millions of fans who are drawn to her music and undeniable talent, Wynonna’s rich and commanding voice has sold over 30 million albums worldwide spanning her remarkable 34-year career. As one half of the legendary mother/daughter duo The Judds, Wynonna was once dubbed by Rolling Stone as “the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline.” This iconic performer has received over 60 industry awards, with countless charting singles, including 20 No. 1 hits such as Mama He’s Crazy, Why Not Me, and Grandpa, (Tell Me ‘Bout the Good Ole Days).
Wynonna and her band The Big Noise, led by her husband/drummer/producer, Cactus Moser, released their debut full-length album in February 2016 via Curb Records to critical acclaim. Wynonna has described the new sound as “vintage yet modern” and a “return to the well.” It’s a rootsy work encompassing country, Americana, blues, soul and rock. The album features special guests Derek Trucks, Jason Isbell, Susan Tedeschi, and Timothy B. Schmit. NPR’s Ann Powers noted that, “With her tight band behind her after touring together for several years, she just sounds like she’s home…You can just feel the grin on her face.”
Past Carolina Theatre Command Performance artists include Roberta Flack, KC and the Sunshine Band, The Pointer Sisters, Paula Poundstone, Boz Scaggs, Ben Folds, Gladys Knight, and Three Dog Night.
