Wynonna & the Big Noise Announce Christmas Tour Dates
Wynonna Judd and her band the Big Noise will end 2016 with a holiday tour, kicking off just after Thanksgiving and running through mid-December.
The Wynonna & the Big Noise Christmas Tour will couple Judd's well-known hits with a healthy mix of holiday tunes. In addition to her biggest songs and holiday favorites, Judd will also be sharing some of her newer music with fans; Wynonna & the Big Noise's self-titled debut album was released in February.
"Every year, I look forward to our Christmas tour," says Judd in a press release. "It's so easy to get caught up in the perfectionism that this time of the year often brings. I love singing the music that inspires me to remember the real reason for the season. My hope is that people can come to the show, forget about their 'to-do' list and, for the time we are together, simply enjoy themselves."
The Wynonna & the Big Noise Christmas Tour will start with a bang: a free concert in Panama City Beach, Fla., on Nov. 26. From there, they'll travel to nine other cities, including Las Vegas and Nashville, and wrap up the trek in Lufkin, Texas, on Dec. 17. A full list of stops can be seen below, and more information is available on Judd's official website.
With Wynonna & the Big Noise, Judd tells The Boot that she feels as though she’s truly getting a second chance.
“It’s so vulnerable, and it’s changed my life. [My husband and bandmate] Cactus Moser has made the best record for me that I’ve ever done, and the best one of mine,” she gushes. “This record is my next chapter of what it’s like to be a 50-year-old woman and have a renewed spirit — a Stella Got Her Groove Back kind of thing. I’m sassier than ever.”
