Judds Reunion? Wynonna Says Let the Fans Decide
Celebrating an illustrious 25 years in country music, Wynonna was all smiles as she performed with her mom, Naomi Judd, Saturday night in front of more than 40,000 fans at the CMA Music Fest. Aware of the monumental task of condensing a quarter-century of songs into one short set, Wynonna deferred to one of her own musical idol's suggestions. "The best advice I ever got was from Bono. He said, 'Give them what they want.' The fans love the hits. So we had to condense the Judds' 25-year history into 20 minutes."
Saturday night's performance was a rare reunion but not an isolated one. Already discussing the possibility of a new Judds record, Wynonna is letting fans take the lead on that decision . "It's sort of like one day at a time, one lifetime at a time," Wynonna said backstage at Music Fest. "If the fans ask for it, we will consider it."
Naomi may need a bit more convincing. After performing together last year, she admitted she had mixed emotions about the possibility. "It's a very unreal sensation because on one hand, it feels like we're still together. I feel like I should be getting ready to do a show tonight. On the other hand, I'm so stinking proud that she has this marvelous solo career."
Reunion talk aside, both Judds are currently thriving in their independent careers. Naomi will once again appear as a judge on CMT's 'Can You Duet' reality talent show, while Wynonna is busy touring to promote her album, 'Sing: Chapter 1,' as well as acting as a spokesperson for the weight-loss drug Alli.
