Wynonna, 55, had a thing to tell the general public about her daughter’s legal troubles for the first time since she was granted her early release. Wynonna said her daughter is the ‘strongest Judd woman’.
In her words, she said on The Pursuit! with John Rich: “I will tell you this. My daughter is the strongest Judd woman in our history. She’s healthier than I was at 23. How she got there – I would not go that way, but I was also sequestered. I was on a bus with my mother. Kind of hard to get in trouble. That could have been me if I didn’t have music.”
