American music icon WYNONNA and her band THE BIG NOISE, led by Cactus Moser, WYNONNA’s producer, longtime drummer and husband, will perform new music from their self-titled debut album just released February 12 on Curb Records. Rave reviews have been flooding in (see below) with critics calling this arguably the best album of her career, describing the music as raw, rootsy, joyful, tough and tender, noting that this project marks the beginning of a new chapter in WYNONNA’s 30+ year career.
The album is also seeing success at radio; it has been consistently rising up the Americana Airplay chart and has now broken into the Top 10at #7 (for the week of 3/7/16).
Special guests on WYNONNA & THE BIG NOISE include Susan Tedeschi, Jason Isbell, Timothy B Schmit and Derek Trucks. Produced by Cactus Moser, the self-titled album includes cuts written by the band, Americana innovator Julie Miller, R&B’s Raphael Saadiq, as well as Music Row legend John Scott Sherrill and multiple CMA Awards-winner and Grammy Award-winner Chris Stapleton, coupled with WYNONNA‘s commanding and incomparable voice.
The band made their national TV debut last month when they performed “Ain’t No Thing,” a song co-written by Chris Stapleton, on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” A special encore performance will air this Friday, March 11 at 12:35/11:35c on NBC and can also be seen online here.
