WYNONNA & THE BIG NOISE ANNOUNCE DEBUT SELF-TITLED ALBUM SET FOR RELEASE FEBRUARY 12

DETAILS EXCLUSIVELY REVEALED TODAY BY ROLLING STONE

“…the self-titled Wynonna & The Big Noise brings a raw, unvarnished approach to the album's dozen tracks, which run the gamut from gutsy blues to sweet, Seventies-inspired country-pop. While the LP is a natural for the wide-open Americana format, Wynonna's legions of country fans will feel right at home with the singer's first full-length album of original material since 2003's What the World Needs Now Is Love.”
--Stephen L. Betts, ROLLINGSTONE.COM, November 6, 2015

American music icon and five-time GRAMMY Award winner WYNONNA JUDD and her band The Big Noise today (11/6) announced their debut self-titled album WYNONNA & THE BIG NOISE is set for release February 12, 2016 via Curb Records in digital and physical formats including vinyl. The details of the upcoming album--featuring special guests Derek Trucks, Jason Isbell, Susan Tedeschi and Timothy B Schmit--broke earlier today at RollingStone.com. The CD and vinyl are available now for pre-order at Amazon: http://smarturl.it/WyTBN.

WYNONNA and her band The Big Noise, led by her husband, producer/drummer Cactus Moser, recorded the majority of the album in the sanctity of their home studio located on the family farm in Tennessee. WYNONNA has described the new album as “vintage yet modern” and a “return to the well.” It’s a rootsy work encompassing country, Americana, blues, soul and rock.

The process of recording WYNONNA & THE BIG NOISE with her band set her free artistically. “Like a garage band we all get in a room, basically knee to knee in a circle, and we jam until it feels amazing,” WYNONNA shares. “By the time we push record we are already jacked up because we have practiced and practiced until we know we are rocking. The end result is even better than when we started out because we’re free to just play and enjoy ourselves.” She adds: “I have stripped myself of all the expectations of worrying about fitting into any format and just picked songs I love. This album is my favorite thing I’ve done so far.”

Cactus elaborates about the recording of the album. “It creates more energy, more excitement and definitely a more unique sound to have our actual band play. When you have session players you just play differently. There’s less emotional input, less freedom! These guys are with us 365 days a year and that was my goal…to have an actual living breathing band make a record, not just people who come in for the week and then are gone. Much better feel, much better vibe. AMEN.”
