1992 Wynonna Judd – Wynonna

Wynonna is the debut studio album of American country music artist Wynonna Judd. It was released in 1992 (see 1992 in country music) on MCA Records in association with Curb Records as her first solo debut album. Before the release of Wynonna, she recorded alongside her mother, Naomi, as The Judds, a duo which charted more than twenty country singles in the 1980s and early 1990s until hepatitis forced Naomi to retire.

Certified 5× Multi-Platinum in the U.S. for sales of five million copies, Wynonna produced three consecutive Number One hits on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts in “She Is His Only Need”, “I Saw the Light”, and “No One Else on Earth”, as well as a #4 in “My Strongest Weakness”. “I Saw the Light” was also the Number One country song of 1992, according to Billboard.

“When I Reach the Place I’m Goin'” was later recorded by Patty Loveless for the 1994 compilation album Red Hot + Country and on her 2005 album Dreamin’ My Dreams.

“It’s Never Easy to Say Goodbye” was later recorded by Kenny Chesney on his 1996 album Me and You.
