The Judds May Reunite In 2010

CURB/NASHVILLE artist WYNONNA JUDD says that she and her mother, NAOMI JUDD, are up to "everything" in 2010, including working together as THE JUDDS.
WYNONNA said: "We are 'in talks,' so there's nothing that's been defined yet. I just felt it in my spirit. A couple weeks ago I said, 'It's 2010. It's been 25 years. It's take your mother to work year. It just feels like it's the right time. She'll be 64 in JANUARY, and I think it's time -- not the whole year, but it's just going to be a way to celebrate her."
WYNONNA said she started thinking about reforming THE JUDDS when the two performed at this year's CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL in NASHVILLE.
She said, "We sang for 50,000 people and they sang back to us, and it was a holy moment. And on the drive home I thought, 'Y'know, I really appreciate where I've come from and the people do, too, and they love THE JUDDS' music and it hasn't disappeared.' I just thought, 'Y'know, I think it's time.'"
WYNONNA said that THE JUDDS are open to recording again, as well as playing live. She added that she's thinking about asking NAOMI to join her on her annual "A Classic Christmas Tour" next year.
WYNONNA's other plans for next year include the publication of her novel, "The Restless Heart," that will be aimed at young adult readers. She is also starting work on a follow-up to her album of cover, "Sing: Chapter 1."
WYNONNA said: "I may go traditional. I may decide to do blues. I may decide to do '80s rock. I'm a work in progress."
