Judd resumes touring Thursday in wake of husband's bike accident

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 – Wynonna Judd said Wednesday she would resume touring tomorrow following a motorcycle accident in which her husband and drummer Cactus Moser had part of his left leg amputated. She also thanked fans for their support.

"We continue to feel loved and supported by the outpouring of messages from people around the world," Wynonna wrote on her web site Tuesday. "Cactus continues to improve every day as he begins his road to rehabilitation. We are looking forward to the day when we will be back together on stage again, and I believe we will be stronger than ever. Until then, I will be out on the road with the rest of the band while I wait lovingly and patiently for my husband to return to The Big Noise."

"We have received hundreds of inquiries from people wanting to show support to Cactus in some way. In lieu of flowers, gifts and cards, Cactus is asking for family, friends and fans to make a donation in his name to Homes For Our Troops, a non-profit, non-partisan organization committed to helping military personnel who have returned home with serious disabilities. Please visit www.homesforourtroops.org/cactusmoser to learn more. Cactus will be notified of every dollar donated in his name, and you can even include a message to him along with your donation."

Moser and Judd went for a ride together on separate bikes before her scheduled concert in Deadwood, S.D. on Aug. 18. Moser collided with an oncoming vehicle and was transported to a local hospital.

Judd resumes touring with her band The Big Noise this Thursday, Aug. 30 at Leelanau Sands Casino in Peshawbestwon, Mich. As promised, she also rescheduled shows originally scheduled for the week following the accident.
