WYNONNA JUDD to Compete On ABC's DANCING WITH THE STARS

Country music icon WYNONNA JUDD has confirmed she'll join ABC-TV's wildly popular competition show "Dancing With The Stars" as a contestant. WYNONNA appeared on "Good Morning America" today to help announce the cast for the 16th season of the show which launches Monday, March 18 at 8 PM ET/7 PM CT.

The five-time Grammy winner is honored and thrilled to join "Dancing With The Stars" and has been paired with professional dancing partner Tony Dovolani, last season's winning instructor. "I've been through an emotional roller coaster over the last year," says WYNONNA, whose husband (and drummer) Cactus Moser lost his leg in an August motorcycle accident. "I focused on being a wife and a nurse for the last seven months, and now I'm doing something for myself.

The main word for me this year is 'risk.' I'm stepping out of my comfort zone and doing something that a lot of people tell me is crazy-but they get it." When asked why she's doing this now, WYNONNA told "Good Morning America," "I'm trying to get back to my original weight of 8 lbs and 15 oz.," jokes WYNONNA. "And because it's the year of doing things you're scared of...I mean, I'm scared to death." Asked about her favorite dance, WYNONNA says, "I love the tango. It is incredibly romantic and passion-filled. It is one of my favorite dances to watch."

About WYNONNA JUDD:
Wynonna is currently recording her eighth studio album. It's just the latest in a string of hit albums that started with her quintuple platinum 1992 solo debut, Wynonna. That set spawned four number one hits and was the bestselling country album ever by a female artist at that time. In 1994, Wynonna received the coveted Top Female Vocalist of the Year trophy at the ACM Awards, and Rolling Stone called her "the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline." Engaging the soulful, bluesy side of her voice only hinted at with The Judds, Wynonna went on to sell more than 10 million albums and reach new creative heights with six chart toppers of her own. Wynonna is also a New York Times bestselling author thanks to her candid 2005 memoir Coming Home to Myself. She expanded into fiction with her 2011 stirring book, Restless Heart.
