Lexington, KY – Tickets go on sale today for Wynonna Judd’s September 24 concert in Ashland, KY. Wynonna takes the stage at the Paramount Arts Center as part of the Alltech Fortnight Festival™. The performance begins at 8 p.m. on the eve of opening ceremonies for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2010™.
Wynonna began her music career in the early 1980s alongside her mother, Naomi, as half of the five-time Grammy winning country duo, The Judds. After years of success, Judd released her first solo album, “Wynonna,” in 1992. The record reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country chart and included four No. 1 singles.
