Recollections, the captivating new EP from Wynonna, marks both a literal and a figurative homecoming for the GRAMMY-winning songstress who recorded much of the collection while quarantining on her Tennessee farm in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The gritty “King Bee,” a half-century-old blues tune Wynonna and Moser have been performing […]
-VIA THE TENNESSEAN- When Naomi Judd was raising her daughters Wynonna and Ashley near the corner of Sunset and Larrabee Street in West Hollywood, she didn’t have enough money to take them to the movies.
