From sitting in a room listening to Stevie Ray and Jimmy Vaughan play, to my dad taking me to hear the blues, to sitting in an all black church with Loretta Lynn's bass singer, singing at Tammy Wynette and Carl Perkins's memorials, playing guitar on stage with U2 and watching my other ...

Product Description

Wynonna's second solo album, from 1993, is certainly not her mother's country. She tries her hand at steamy Southern rock ("Let's Make a Baby King," "Rock Bottom"), pop-flavored ballads ("Is It Over Yet"--a bravura performance--and the duller "Only Love" and "I Just Drove By"), folk rock (the sweetly sung Karla Bonoff-penned title hit), Sheryl Crow-written pseudo-gospel ("Father Sun"), and a rock romp (Mary-Chapin Carpenter's anthemic "Girls with Guitars," complete with interpolated "Smoke on the Water" and "Sunshine of Your Love" mini-riffs). Everything but conventional country finds a place here, in fact. Intriguingly, the standout track just may be "That Was Yesterday," the brooding blues that mother Naomi wrote for her. --Ken Barnes

Customer Reviews

Get to it fellas...lol!
K. Oleff
There's punch and kick in Wynonna's blend of country, rock and blues, displaying an earthiness and grittiness rare among women in country music.
J. M. Zuurbier
Wynonna has an instantly recognizable voice that can be gruff and rough, or tender and full of emotion, when it needs to be.

Wynonna's Tell Me Why album is a great follow up to her first solo album (Wynonna). The songs are a great mix of country and pop, with a bit of jazz and blues thrown in. If you listen carefully, you can hear Naomi's harmony on "Girls with Guitars."

Though several of the songs, such as "Tell Me Why" and "Only Love," are more of the traditional Judd-style sound, Wy expands her musical style with more hard-hitting numbers like "Rock Bottom" and "That was Yesterday." The album also has a taste of religious themes (Let's Make a Baby King and Father Sun).

If you enjoyed any of the Judds music or Wy's first album, you'll like this album too. I recommend it!

When your debut albums lands critical acclaim, #1 singles, sells millions, and will live forever you have that painstaking task of following it up...but, some fail and some succeed.
Wynonna (as she is NOW know) did just that...hot off the heals of her smash debut, Tell Me Why takes a huge direction change from the Wynonna we knew as Wynonna Judd. Relinquished of the duties of satisfying traditionalists, Wynonna dug into 1993 with a set that contained blues, country, rock, and soul.
Tell Me Why produced 4 top 10 songs. From the blues rocker, That Was Yesterday (penned by Mama Judd) to the rockers Rock Bottom, an anthom for most of us and Girls With Guitars. Wynonna always splashes us with a bit of her balladry and the song Is It Over Yet? A song so moving it just leaves you in awe!
Wynonna has such a powerful voice you have to wonder if the spunk of Elvis and the soul of Patsy Cline were not wrapped up in her.
Artists come and go, but those with talent have staying power, thank god Wynonna has the talent. She will be here for many more landmark albums like Tell Me Why.

"Tell Me Why" is the best album thus far from this red headed diva. The title track is the way I like to hear her. She sounds country and not her R&B stuff which I don't care for. She is more country here than on her last couple of CDs (Revelations & The Other Side).
Other standout songs here are "Father Sun", "Just Like New", "I Just Drove By" and "That Was Yesterday", which was written by the talented Naomi Judd, Wy's mother. If you want the very best Wynonna has to offer as a single artist, buy this terrific album.

Though her second CD as a solo artist has a more varied selection of song(they arent all "country") it is nonetheless a superb album.

Tell Me Why,Only Love,Is It Over Yet,Rock Bottom, and Girls With Guitars were the singles released and went to number 2,1,4,2,7 respectively.

My favorites besides the singles would have to be I Just Drove by, Father Sun, and That was Yesterday.

And as with her first solo album, Naomi provides her extraordinary talent on Girls with Guitars by singing(along with Vince Gill) and by writing That was Yesterday.

I just drove by would have to be my favorite all time songs by Wynonna(solo). You would really have to know Wynonna's whole history, her rags-to-riches story, to really be able to understand this song. It really is beautiful.

As with her first album, I highly recommend anyone who is a fan of music to pick this up!

This Wynonna cd is superb. It can take you through a range of emotions from beginning to end. It starts with a very upbeat "Tell Me Why" and ends with a very slow and bluesy "That Was Yesterday". In between, you get the relaxing and romantic "Only Love" (my favorite) and the reminiscent "I Just Drove By" to make you think back to days gone by. There's also the heart wrenching "Is It Over Yet", which Wynonna pours her heart into and "Girls With Guitars" which is kind of like a girls rule anthem type song. Overall, it's a great cd and Wynonna's vocals are flawless. I highly recommend this cd to anyone and everyone.

I purchased this album in 1993 when it came out. I was familiar with the Judds and loved their music but didn't think to take Wynonna at her own. I then saw a live concert that played on PBS, promoting her Tell Me Why album and let me say, IT ENTERTAINED ME! The next day, I went out and bought the album. It sounded just like the concert. Very well put together! I then worked my way backwards and bought her self titled Wynonna. Ever since, I've been a real BIG fan. Nothing she does disappoints me. That's rare with music artists these days.

I must say that this cd is my favorite of all time. I have owned it for 6 years and still thoroughly enjoy every song when I listen to it. The reason is that this cd has so much soul and genuine emotion and Wy's amazing voice pulls the feeling out of every song, even though the styles of the songs vary greatly. Wy goes from styles inspired by B.B. King and Aretha to James Taylor to Sheryl Crow (who wrote "Father Sun") to revisiting the Judds sound on "I Just Drove By." This album is the best of Wy's solo projects, with "Wynonna" coming in a close second." With guest vocals from Mom Naomi Judd and Lyle Lovett, songs written by Mary Chapin Carpenter and Jesse Winchester, and production by Tony Brown (Elvis' former piano player), this album showcases Wy's amazing voice and ability to tackle a wide range of material like no other and earns her a throne right between Aretha Franklin and Dusty Springfield. This song is a must for any fan of 60's soul, 70's country-rock, or music for that matter.
