wynonna Judd Early Life
Wynonna Judd was born Christina Claire Ciminella in Ashland, Kentucky on May 30, 1964. Naomi Judd was her mother. She was given the surname Ciminella after her mother married Michael Ciminella shortly after being abandoned by her lover and Judd's biological father, Charles Jordan, in 2000. Ashley Judd, her younger half-sister, is an actress. Naomi and Michael divorced in 1972 after the family relocated to Los Angeles in 1968. Wynonna and Naomi moved to Kentucky in 1976, where Wynonna was inspired by the country music her mother was constantly playing and began to play guitar after receiving one for Christmas.
In 1979, the Judds relocated to Nashville, Tennessee, where they formed the mother-daughter duo The Judds. The Judds charted 23 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles charts between 1983 and 1991, including 14 number ones. Additionally, they released eight studio albums, one holiday album, and two greatest hits collections. The Judds sold over 20 million records worldwide throughout their six-year tenure and garnered over 60 industry accolades, including five Grammy nominations, nine Country Music Association awards (seven consecutive), and eight Billboard Music Awards. For a time, they were the best-selling duet in country music, a position they held until Brooks & Dunn surpassed them in the 1990s.
Naomi was forced into early retirement during a farewell tour in 1991 due to a chronic case of hepatitis C. Wynonna and her mother reunited in 1999 for a K-Mart-sponsored New Year's Eve show. In 2000, they embarked on a tour together, resulting in the publication of four new Judds songs. They reunited in 2010 for an 18-city tour dubbed "The Last Encore." As a result of the tour's popularity, they collaborated on a new album, "I Will Stand by You: The Essential Collection," which included two new songs and a collection of their biggest hits.
wynonna Judd Personal Life
In 1996, Judd married Arch Kelly III. They had a son, Elijah Judd, in December 1994. Her having a kid "out of wedlock" had a negative impact on her career at the time, as her fanbase was predominantly conservative. D.R. Roach, whom she married in November 2003, was her second spouse. Roach was arrested in 2007 on charges of sexual abuse on a child under the age of 13. She filed for divorce five days later. Judd married Cactus Moser, the band Highway 101's drummer, on June 10, 2012, in her Leiper's Fork, Tennessee, home. Two months later, Moser was severely injured in a motorbike accident in South Dakota, necessitating the amputation of his left leg.
