Wynonna Calls Husband's Recovery a 'Miracle'
November 30, 2012
Country music star Wynonna Judd is opening up about her husband's motorcycle crash in August that required doctors to amputate his left leg.
The country music star's husband, drummer Michael Scott 'Cactus' Moser, 55, joined Judd, 48, onstage Tuesday night during her performance on the first stop of her Rockin' Christmas tour in the Canadian city of Regina, Saskatchewan.
"It's been a long way from Aug. 18 to here. It's truly a miracle," she told the audience at one point during the show, according to the local newspaper the Leader-Post.
Judd and her husband were riding on separate bikes before a concert in Deadwood, South Dakota last August when his bike collided with an oncoming vehicle. Moser's injuries resulted in his left leg being amputated above the knee and he also underwent surgery on one of his hands.
Moser, a drummer for the band The Big Noise, was expected to be stay in a rehabilitation facility for three to four weeks, but completed his treatment in just eight days. He took the stage Tuesday night to perform with his wife and received a lengthy standing ovation, the Leader-Post reported.
Judd recently spoke about some of the ways her life changed after the accident. "I went from Wynonna the singer to Wynonna the wife, the nurse, the cook, the driver," she told the websiteThe Boot, according to People.com. "We're talking real down-in-the-trenches, hardcore stuff that you don't really think you're gonna have to go to [in a marriage]," she added.
