A five-time GRAMMY winner, Wynonna is also a New York Times bestselling author thanks to her candid 2005 memoir Coming Home to Myself. Now she expands into fiction with her stirring new book, Restless Heart. Drawing on her nearly 30 years experience as a country music megastar, Wynonna's debut novel tells the story of young Kentucky native and aspiring country singer Destiny Hart. The story unfolds as Destiny wins the Kentucky Idol talent competition and makes the move to Nashville, only to face rejection and a struggle to pay the bills. Destiny's big break finally comes, and her dizzying rise to stardom leads her on a path of self-discovery grappling with love, loss, success, and surrender. Overcoming obstacles is a recurring theme in Wynonna's work, and that triumphant outlook shows up on every page of Restless Heart.
Of course, Wynonna's own journey as one half of legendary duo The Judds with her mother Naomi Judd provides one of the most fascinating stories in country music history. Rising to superstardom in the early '80s on the strength of chart toppers like "Mama's He's Crazy," "Why Not Me" and "Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days)," The Judds were unstoppable for the rest of the decade picking up multiple GRAMMY, CMA and ACM Awards and selling more than 20 million albums along the way. The duo's initial run came to an end with a record-breaking farewell tour in 1991 after Naomi was diagnosed with Hepatitis C. While Wynonna went on to launch her wildly successful solo career, Naomi fully recovered from her illness and became a bestselling author, speaker and talk show host. Due to popular demand, The Judds have embarked on two highly successful tours since Naomi's initial retirement -- 2000's Power to Change tour and their recent outing, The Last Encore.
