1996 Wynonna Judd – Revelations

Revelations is the third studio album by American country music artist Wynonna Judd, released in 1996 on MCA Records in association with Curb Records. It was her first album since Tell Me Why three years previous. The album’s lead-off single, “To Be Loved by You”, was her fourth and final #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. The second single, “Heaven Help My Heart”, peaked at #14 on the same chart, while “My Angel Is Here” and “Somebody to Love You” both missed the top 40, becoming the first two singles of her career to do so. The album itself peaked at #2 on the Top Country Albums charts and #9 on The Billboard 200, and was certified platinum by the RIAA.

The track “Free Bird” is a cover of the Lynyrd Skynyrd song, and was previously included on the 1994 tribute album Skynyrd Frynds.
