2013 is shaping up to be a truly memorable year for country music icon Wynonna Judd. There’s a new single due from her upcoming album, an hour long television documentary, and a national magazine cover feature, plus it was recently announced that Wynonna will be a contestant on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars.” The excitement all begins Monday, March 18th.
On Monday, Wynonna returns to music as country radio receives “Something You Can’t Live Without,” the first single off Wynonna’s forthcoming full-length album, produced by her husband/drummer Cactus Moser and set for release this year on Curb Records. This album–her first with all new material in over four years–was recorded in her own home studio and is deeply personal, especially noting the life-changing events the couple experienced last year. “Something You Can’t Live Without” was co-written by Moser and hitmaker David Lee Murphy and serves as a reminder of Wynonna and Cactus’ unwavering love for each other. The track will be available digitally via iTunes and Amazon on Tuesday, March 19.
Also on Monday (3/18), “Wynonna and Cactus: The Road Back” will premiere on Great American County (GAC TV) at 10pm ET/9pm CT. The hour long documentary tells the never-before-shared story of newlyweds Wynonna and Cactus Moser and their journey from a fledgling crush to a devastating motorcycle accident last year that took Cactus’ leg. Through revealing interviews and exclusive home footage, this story documents a miraculous journey from the depths of despair to the triumphant stage comeback of Wynonna’s husband and drummer. Wynonna and Cactus have also intimately shared the details of their life post-accident in a cover story with US Weekly, on newsstands this week.
The five-time Grammy winner has courageously taken on another challenge in her life by competing on ABC’s powerhouse show “Dancing With The Stars.” Wynonna’s first dance with professional partner and last season’s champion instructor Tony Dovolani will air Monday, March 18th at 8pm ET/7pm CT.
“I focused on being a wife and a nurse for the last seven months and now I’m doing something for myself,” shares Wynonna. “The main word for me this year is ‘risk.’ I’m stepping out of my comfort zone and doing something that a lot of people tell me is crazy—but they get it.”
In true Wynonna fashion, despite the hardships she has faced, she’s always able to laugh. When asked why she’s doing this now, Wynonna jokes, “I’m trying to get back to my original weight of 8 lbs and 15 oz.”
