Most country musicians – whether new, old or outlaw – pride themselves on their ability as storytellers. So as genre royalty whose three-decade career has included chart-topping highs, public lows and five Grammy awards along the way, you can bet that Wynonna Judd has some tales to tell.
These yarns and the music they inspired are the fuel for the ginger-haired icon’s current Wynonna and Friends: Stories and Songs Tour, which she’ll truck into the Seneca Niagara Events Center (310 Fourth St., Niagara Falls) at 8 p.m. Saturday. Accompanied by her three-piece band – including husband and producer Cactus Moser – the country legend will have plenty of material to delve into, whether it be details of her prolific (and complicated) artistic partnership with mother, Naomi; memories of her quintuple-platinum 1992 debut, “Wynonna”; hints of new tracks off her forthcoming solo album; or creative notes attached to the evening’s planned set of acoustic-delivered classics.
The singer/songwriter’s career has been an incredible journey from Ashland, Ky., to Nashville and the heights of country music stardom, and it continues this weekend with a stop at the Falls.
