Judd marries again
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
– Wynonna Judd married drummer Cactus Moser in a sunset wedding June 10 on her farm in Leiper's Fork, Tenn.
For her third walk down the aisle, Judd, 48, donned a Houri Barahimi dress and no shoes. A drummer in Judd's band, The Big Noise, 55-year old Moser wore a tuxedo, which he accessorized with a vest, pocket watch and holster.
"I felt a joy that hasn't been there before," Judd said.
Attendees included her kids from previous marriages Grace, 16, and Elijah, 17. Her sister, Ashley Judd, and mom, Naomi Judd, did not attend.
Dating since 2009, Judd and Moser announced their engagement last December. Judd divorced her second husband, D.R. Roach after 4 years in 2007, and split from businessman Arch Kelly III - with whom she has two children - in 1998.

These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots
Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones
Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time.
