Born in May of 1964 in Ashland, Kentucky, Wynonna Judd, born Christina Claire Ciminella, first got her break in music when she joined with her mother to form the successful duo The Judds in 1979. The two performed together until 1991, after which Wynonna moved on to a solo career. In 1992, she released her self-titled album with MCA/Curb Records. Her first single off that album went straight to Number One, followed by her next two singles. The album was certified 5x Multi-Platinum.
Throughout her solo career, Judd secured a number of Number One places with singles like “She Is His Only Need,” “I Saw the Light,” “No One Else on Earth” and “To Be Loved by You.” She also reached the Top 10 and Top 5 several times. Her singles “Tell Me Why” and “Only Love” peaked at Number Three in the early 90s, while she reached Number Two with 1994’s “Rock Bottom.”
Judd has also accumulated a number of awards and nominations throughout her career as a solo artist. In 1994, she received the ACM Female Artist of the Year award. In 2005, she received the Merit Award from the USO for her service to all divisions of the United States Armed Forces. In 2007, she was added to the Music City Walk of Fame with her own star.
