Wynonna added to Beaver Creek’s Vilar Center lineup

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado
Wynonna has sold more than 10 million albums, released 6 platinum-plus/gold-plus albums, scored 16 Top Ten hits, and a Top Female Vocalist Of The Year award from the Academy of Country Music. She'll perform in Beaver Creek Feb. 17.

BEAVER CREEK, Colorado – On a first name basis with the world for 25 years, award-winning country music superstar Wynonna will make her first-ever appearance at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek Feb. 17 at 7:30 p.m.

“It’s beyond exciting to present an iconic act like Wynonna in our intimate, 530-seat venue,” said VPAC Executive Director Kris Sabel.

Wynonna’s musical breakthrough came in the early-1980s with the mother/daughter team The Judds, featuring Wynonna and her mother Naomi, (whose humble Kentucky family life – Naomi was a working/single mom – reflected the everyday struggles of many Americans) found the pair emerging as one of the most popular singing duos of all time. Their kitchen-table harmonies and home-spun rapport reignited the country music scene, with the pair going on to sell more than 20 million albums, winning five Grammys and more than 60 industry awards, and achieving gold, platinum, and multi-platinum certifications from the RIAA.

Wynonna will appear solo in Beaver Creek, performing songs from her seventh studio album, “Sing: Chapter 1.” Her first studio album in six years, “Sing” pays homage to 11 country, rock, blues and soul-baring standards originated by legendary artists that have formed the unique soundtrack to her own life.

Tickets for Wynonna are $98/123/148 based on seating and will be available online at vilarpac.org, by phone at 888-920-ARTS(2787) or in person at the Vilar Center box office in Beaver Creek, beginning Thursday at 11 a.m. Tickets are available online 24 hours a day.
