Wynonna Judd

Born in Kentucky, Wynonna Judd was raised in poverty by her mother, Naomi Judd. Mother and daughter shared a love of singing, and moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music. In 1983, the Judds were signed to RCA records -- and were shot into country music superstardom. The Judds sold over 20 million albums and won five Grammys. After her mother fell ill, Wynonna pursued a solo career, with equally huge success -- in spite of some personal struggles. Wynonna's half-sister, Ashley Judd, is an accomplished actress. [+]
