Wynonna Judd and Cactus Moser are two musicians who met years before they got together. In between, they each had marriages and children.

Wynonna Judd and Cactus Moser’s relationship came at the perfect time, over two decades after they first met.

Judd was the other half of the award-winning duo The Judds, together with her mother, Naomi. Moser was also a country legend who played for the band Highway 101, making them both stars in the industry.

MEETING FOR THE FIRST TIME

The pair met while on tour together in 1989. Although there was a spark between the musicians, dating was not an option as Judd’s mother was always present.

“He had a mullet,” she recalled about her husband’s hair back when he took the stage. “[A] beautiful feathered hairdo.”

Despite living their own lives, Judd and Moser remained friends for years. Finally, the time reconnected them, and the two became romantically involved in 2009.

Rogers peacefully passed away from natural causes and died in the loving hands of his family.

TYING THE KNOT

Finally, the couple made their relationship official by tying the knot in 2012, at Leipers Fork Farm, Tennessee.

No one but the couple’s children from their previous partners were present to witness their union, not even Judd’s famous sister and mother.

“I didn’t want it to be about anyone but Cactus and me,” she said. “Because to me, at the end of the day, it’s the children, Cactus, and me. I was concerned about making this feel special for them; everything fell away.”

TRAGEDY STRIKES

Their first two months seemed like a fairytale until Moser collided with a car while riding his motorcycle, leaving him with severe injuries.

The complications that came from the crash resulted in Moser’s leg amputation -- a painful but needed decision.

Moser’s condition limited his movements and needed him to be placed under care, which Judd has given every day since.

“I went from Wynonna the singer to Wynonna the wife, the nurse, the cook, the driver,” she recalled. “We’re talking real down-in-the-trenches, hardcore stuff that you don’t really think you’re gonna have to go to.”

JUDD MOURNS THE DEATH OF ROGERS

Last March, Judd’s heart broke after hearing about the passing of her dear friend, legendary singer, Kenny Rogers.

She paid tribute to the late artist with a social media post, calling him “one of the greatest examples of integrity.”

Rogers peacefully passed away from natural causes and died in the loving hands of his family. Several country stars also mourned his death on social media.
