Who Is Wynonna Judd’s Husband?
Cactus Moser Wynonna’s current husband is Cactus Moser, the drummer for Highway 101. The pair first met while touring together in the 1980s (he was the drummer for Highway 101), and rekindled their bond decades later. They tied the knot in June 2012, with only their children present. The wedding was a small, intimate affair, with Wynonna saying that she wanted it to be just about her, Cactus, and their children. Cactus is a four-time CMA winner and a three-time Grammy nominee. He is also a member of Wynonna & the Big Noise, his wife’s band. She has called him the backbone of the band and refers to him as “Animal” because of his drumming style.
Their ability to stick by one another’s side is nothing new. In August 2012, just months after their wedding, Moser was injured in a motorcycle accident and had his left leg amputated above the knee. At the time, Judd called her husband a “champion” and said she would not “leave his side.” Their relationship has only grown stronger since then. In an interview in October 2022, Wynonna opened up about her special bond with Cactus Moser, whom she married in 2012. She said that they have been through a lot together, including his accident, her mother’s death, and her daughter’s legal troubles. She said that they have learned to support each other through all the ups and downs of life.
