Media Praise for WYNONNA & THE BIG NOISE:
 
"...the self-titled Wynonna & The Big Noise brings a raw, unvarnished approach to the album's dozen tracks, which run the gamut from gutsy blues to sweet, Seventies-inspired country-pop. While the LP is a natural for the wide-open Americana format, Wynonna's legions of country fans will feel right at home..."
--Stephen L. Betts, ROLLINGSTONE.COM, November 6, 2015
 
"Wynonna & The Big Noiselays bare the joy that is Judd's most potent gift as a vocalist...Wynonna's in the big field now. But she was always there anyway, with her magnificently versatile alto and penchant for both belting and swooning. With her tight band behind her after touring together for several years, she just sounds like she's home...You can just feel the grin on her face."
--Ann Powers, NPR, February 3, 2016
 
"Wynonna sounds as good as ever...On her first album fronting a band, Wynonna brings the noise, for sure; but she also offers a master class on how to instill feeling into songs arranged in a variety of musical styles."
--Michael McCall, ASSOCIATED PRESS, February 16, 2016
 
"Singer Wynonna Judd opens a new chapter in her long career with her forthcoming album Wynonna & The Big Noise, her first with a full band of her own...the sound, however, is a departure, more stripped to the bone and rootsy, more contemporary American..."
--Randy Lewis, LOS ANGELES TIMES, January 22, 2016
 
"...a celebration of love. In talking with the country songstress, one gets the feeling she is at a blissful point in her life where she has wanted to be for a long time -- and it can be heard glowingly on each track...What sets the disc -- her first of non-covers since 2003's What The World Needs Now Is Love -- apart is that it is truly a band effort recorded with her four-man ensemble."
--Chuck Dauphin, BILLBOARD, January 29, 2016
 
"Although she's never been away, this feels like a comeback for Wynonna Judd...this is primarily Wynonna and her band collaborating on a set of first-class songs that succeed by sounding far more rootsy, earthy and raw than in the past...it's yet additional proof of her tough/tender, sassy/sensitive vocal prowess and arguably the finest release of her extensive career. 4 out of 5 stars."
--Hal Horowitz, AMERICAN SONGWRITER, February 12, 2016
