Judd cancels dates due to husband's bike accident
Sunday, August 19, 2012
– Wynonna Judd postponed her scheduled concerts in Canada next week due to a serious motorcycle accident involving her husband and drummer, Michael Scott "Cactus" Moser.
Moser and Judd went for a ride together on separate bikes before her scheduled concert in Deadwood, S.D. yesterday. Moser collided with an oncoming vehicle and was transported to a local hospital. He is being treated for serious, but non-life threatening injuries. Wynonna was not involved in the accident.
"The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I. Cactus is a champion. I love him deeply and I will not leave his side," said Judd. They were married this past June in Tennessee.

Love of the heavenly kind is a theme that runs from ...
