But I was, we were so poor, I just remember being just this little girl, you know, with her granddaddy and being there and now here I am. I feel like Miss America.”

12. SOUNDBITE (English) Wynonna Judd, recording artist – on working on a new album:
“I am working on a new record because that’s what we do in the – it’s like being a farmer, you know, you plant your crop in the spring and you wait for the harvest, and the harvest will come as soon as I get this record done. I just did a duet with Lainey Wilson. I’m always doing something. I’m one of those pioneers that just jumps out there and puts myself in the middle of the party and says, ‘Okay, I’m here, let’s do this.’ And I have numbers of some rock stars that I’m going to look up pretty soon and say, ‘Okay, let’s do what we talked about at the last party we were at together, and let’s do this because it’s time.’”
