Earning rave reviews for their acclaimed self-titled debut album–which has achieved Top Ten status on the Americana Airplay chart and reached #2 on the Roots Music Report (country) chart–Wynonna & The Big Noise look forward to an eventful spring and summer on the road. It starts with two performances set for “Dylan Fest Nashville”–a musical celebration of Bob Dylan’s 75th birthday-at the Ryman Auditorium on May 23 and 24 alongside Jason Isbell, Kacey Musgraves, Nikki Lane and more. Tickets are available now here.

“Years ago, Bob Dylan wrote me a song and I have never forgotten that,” says Wynonna. “I still have it…I kept it as a treasure. He is a poet. He is relevant to every generation because he’s authentic. He has never conformed to musical fads and has always maintained a true sense of self. He’s a stylist. You know whose record it is three second in. He’s timeless…I’m looking so forward to celebrating him.”

Says Cactus Moser, Wynonna’s producer, longtime drummer and husband who leads The Big Noise:

“To be on the Dylan Fest is a 40-year dream come true. His Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid and Time Out Of Mind albums are two of my great influences. He’s The American Icon influence for all of us 70s kids.”

Coming of their three strong performances in Marchat SXSW, American music icon Wynonna and her band The Big Noise will continue on the road throughout the summer with select headlining shows and various festival performances, including the Red Ants Pants Music Festival (lineup mates include The Lone Bellow, Hurray for the Riff Raff and The Mavericks), Faster Horses Music Festival (alongside Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Gary Allan and others) and Live Oak Music Festival (with Sarah Jarosz, James McMurtry and Jay Farrar), among others. More information on purchasing tickets can be found here See below for full list of upcoming dates.

“There is always a really joyful and celebratory vibe of outdoor shows,” says Wynonna. “The freedom of being outdoors allows my spirit to fly! AND!!! When the walls come down, Wynonna & The Big Noise can get even louder!!!! I am so RED-y to rock!!!!!!”

“To be on festivals this summer like Red Ants Pants with artists we are fans of as well as friends with is the BEST SUMMER vacation!!” says Cactus. “The Mavericks and Ray Wiley Hubbard just to name a couple! DELIGHTED!”

Currently at Americana radio is the co-penned Chris Stapleton song “Ain’t No Thing,” the latest single from Wynonna & The Big Noise‘s self-titled album (via CURB Records), which has been described as raw, rootsy, joyful, tough and tender. They performed the song in February on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” which marked their national late-night TV debut. Click here to watch the performance video of “Ain’t No Thing.”

Wynonna Releases “Jesus and a Jukebox” Music Box

Check out Wynonna‘s new music video for “Jesus and a Jukebox.” She tells Rollingstone that it’s more than a story about faith, love, grief and loss…it’s the yin and yang of real life and country music.

When I was 15, I went and saw George Jones in concert — my first concert ever. I sang at his funeral [in 2013],” she tells Rolling Stone Country. “It was literally the end of an era for me. It made me really aware while making this record of how we’re losing our legends. This is an honor moment on the record, where I go back to my roots. The pedal steel is a foundational instrument on the record, and in country music; the words are a story, which country music is — stories about real life, real people in the real world.

“This guy has lost the love of his life,” she continues. “The fact that the song goes from the Bible to the bar made sense to me. Grief ebbs and flows. The Word reminds him that he’ll see her again, but the bar is helping him to let her go. It’s just very real and very honest.”
