When you love what you do and love each other, it’s perfect.”Being in the third chapter of her career,
Wynonna and the band are working on a new record. “I’m in this really feisty mood,” she says. “The industry is tough as it is, but it’s been an amazing season for me. There’s freedom after fifty, baby!” -Kristen KucharskiPurchase tickets atwww.finearts.northcentralcollege.edu/event/wynonna-big-noise
