Wynonna has announced dates for her “Wynonna and Friends: Stories & Song” Tour. Launching Wednesday, January 14 in Durham, NC, with a stop in her Ashland, KY hometown, the special run of shows will visit intimate venues only. With her one-of-a-kind powerhouse voice and engaging storytelling flair, Wynonna–joined by her 3-piece band including her husband, producer and award-winning artist Cactus Moser–will share with audiences the personal stories behind what inspired her to record the songs from her 30-year platinum career.
“Wynonna and Friends: Stories & Song” will also hit Indiana, Idaho, California, Pennsylvania, New York and Connecticut, before wrapping Sunday, March 8 in Boston, MA. The tour itinerary is below and additional dates will be added. To purchase tickets and stay informed on new confirmed shows, visit www.wynonna.com.
“The concept for the ‘Stories & Song’ tour has been a dream of mine for many years and will be unlike any tour I’ve ever done before,” explains WYNONNA about the inspiration for this special tour. “My husband and professional partner, Cactus Moser, and I have put this show together and, along with the band [The Big Noise], we all feel a renewed passion and we believe that this music is being celebrated in a whole new way. That gives me a great deal of hope and it is my prayer that others who come to our shows will experience that hope as well.”
Wynonna has been working with husband/producer/drummer Cactus Moser on solo material for her 8th studio album due out 2015 on Curb Records. She recently opened up to Rolling Stone Country about the direction the new music is taking, describing it as “vintage yet modern.”
The couple also recently released “Follow Me,” an original song exclusively for the film “The Hornet’s Nest” which features unprecedented real footage to tell the story of an elite group of U.S. troops sent on a dangerous mission deep inside one of Afghanistan’s most hostile valleys. They performed the powerful track on “Good Morning America” back on May 22.
