Wynonna Judd to Appear at SXSW 2015
Wynonna Judd is booked to appear at the 2015 South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Conference in Austin, Texas for an in-depth interview with NPR’s Ann Powers and a special musical performance.
Both events will take place Friday, March 20. The iconic festival is widely hailed as one of the best ways for businesses to promote their brands to those in the film and music industries. As a talented artist, Judd is elated to have the opportunity to perform at the prestigious conference.
"I’ve been a SAG-AFTRA member since 1983, and the union continues to play an important role in my career,” the country star notes. “After 30 years of being an artist, having this opportunity to perform at SXSW with my band is such amazing timing! I'm celebrating an important part of my musical journey and I’m honored that SAG-AFTRA is presenting our Stories And Song Tour to the attendees in Austin, where I first began singing with Mom on Austin City Limits back in the ‘80s. Life indeed has come full circle!"
Judd will first sit down with Powers to discuss her prolific career, as well as her current and future plans. That evening, Judd will perform along with her band, the Big Noise, at an intimate gathering at St. David’s Bethell Hall (301 E 8th St). The singer is looking forward to appearing at the conference and conducting the interview, which will be a ray of light following a tour bus fire. It was also announced this week that Judd is scheduled to appear at the 2015 CMA Music Festival. See a full lineup for that event here.
