Tied in with both the release of Wynonna Judd's memoir, COMING HOME TO MYSELF, and the DVD version of this concert, HER STORY: SCENES FROM A LIFETIME is a double-CD live album. Recorded in early 2005 at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Tennessee, this performance presents the beloved country singer celebrating 20 years of music, from her early work with the Judds to later solo hits. Throughout this career-spanning set, Wynonna's voice is in typically powerful form, whether she's easing into the Judds' "Dream Chaser" or stirring up the audience with a bold, soulful rendition of Tina Turner's "Simply the Best." Other highlights include an emotive version of "Tell Me Why" and a raucous take on "No One Else on Earth." In addition to the concert, HER STORY also presents a boisterous new studio track, "Attitude," a collaboration with Big & Rich's John Rich, adding a nice finishing touch to this wonderful Wynonna retrospective.
