Wynonna unleashes her inner rock girl at Snoqualmie Casino

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

WYNONNA
SNOQUALMIE CASINO BALLROOM
May 7


Everything about Wynonna is big, from the voice to the hair to the attitude. She brought all this bigness with her to Snoqualmie Casino last Thursday night, where she performed a 75-minute set of music to a near full house.

The Nashville queen strummed a white acoustic guitar along to the opening number, 'Mama He's Crazy,' the first #1 single for The Judds, the country mother-daughter duo that gave Wynonna her initial success before embarking on an equally standout solo career.

'I hope tonight it's worth the trip,' said Wynonna to everyone, dressed in black pants with matching oversized blouse and long ruby red hair draped on either side of her shoulders.

'Rock Bottom' featured some crafty slide guitar work and Wynonna's husky voice, while 'Testify to Love' was meshed into a medley with a cover of Eric Clapton's 'Change the World.' A wonderful, passionate version of 'She Is His Only Need' was the evening's highlight, though in contrast a redo of Foreigner's 'I Want to Know What Love Is' was performed way over the top; rather than keep it simple, the tender pop-rock ballad was saturated by the artist's too-heavy vocals.

For those who came to the show wanting to hear Wynonna's country hits, they left dissatisfied, literally - many people fled through the exit doors about midway through. I, too, had hoped to experience live renditions of 'Tell Me Why,' 'I Saw the Light,' 'Only Love,' and 'Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days),' but sadly all of these were left off the set list. Fortunately, two fan favorites, 'No One Else on Earth,' which closed out the performance (with no encore afterwards), and 'Love is Alive,' were squeezed in.

Backed by a full band, that included husband and drummer Cactus Moser, Wynonna seemed to be having a ball on stage, regardless of the fact she was giving the audience a rock concert that strayed far from her country roots. At one point, she shook her hair madly and played a little air guitar. She did mix in a couple of new songs, which were sassy and blues-pop oriented, and both were catchy, yet neither made up for the hits everyone had wished to listen to.

Something else that's big about Wynonna is her humor. Answering to criticism from those who think she's not country enough, she hilariously noted, 'I did my mom's hair for 10 years. If that ain't country!' On the serious side, she also acknowledged her previous struggles and demons, saying truthfully 'If I wasn't here, I'd be dead or in jail.'

With a new album expected later this year, it's very possible Wynonna will return in the near future for another concert. In the meantime, I'll have 'Tell Me Why' on repeat.
