Kree Harrison Joins Wynonna Judd Live Onstage
‘American Idol‘ runner-up Kree Harrison hasn’t been wasting any time in capitalizing on the opportunities her success on the show has brought her way. She debuted on the Grand Ole Opry stage on Tuesday night (June 4), joined by ‘Idol’ judge Keith Urban, and now she can check “perform with Wynonna Judd” off her bucket list as well. The 23-year-old singer joined one of her own musical idols onstage at a Nashville club Wednesday night (June 5) for a couple of songs.
After the 2013 CMT Music Awards, the two country singers headed over to Nashville’s famed 3rd & Lindsley venue, where they performed a pair Judds classics, ‘Love Is Alive’ and ‘Grandpa,’ together.
“This woman has been one of my biggest influences my entire life,” a thunderstruck Harrison told the crowd (quote via Taste of Country). The two performed like old friends, blending together perfectly and grabbing each others’ hands throughout the performance.
Judd joked around with Harrison, who once told Rosie O’ Donnell that Wynonna is one of her favorite singers. Introducing ‘Grandpa’ she said, “I start the first verse because it’s my song. Let’s get that straight.”
The admiration appears to be mutual now. Judd tweeted the above photo Thursday morning (June 6), gushing about Harrison, “She is such a musical gift.”
