The 15-city tour kicks off on Tuesday, October 26 at Murat Theatre before wrapping up in Knoxville at Tennessee Theatre on December 1.

“We are so pleased to have been chosen as one of 15 shows on this tour,” said Tammy Koolbeck, Executive Director at Stephens Auditorium.  “To hear her perform her two solo albums in completion on the Stephens stage and with our acoustics will make this night unforgettable for our audience.”

With vast critical acclaim including high endorsement as “the voice of her generation” by Rolling Stone, Wynonna, selling over five-million units, became the highest-selling debut album by a female artist at the time.  Wynonna earned 3 consecutive #1 hits with “She Is His Only Need,” “I Saw The Light,” and “No One Else On Earth.”  A musical force like none other before her, Wynonna followed her wildly successful debut with the multi-platinum disc, Tell Me Why, which produced several hit singles including “Tell Me Why,” “Is It Over Yet,” “Rock Bottom,” and “Girls With Guitars.”
