When Wynonna Judd began her first solo tour a few months ago, she realized she had a bit of an image problem.It wasn't the sort of public misperception that usually plagues pop stars, though. For most of us on this side of the country music business, Wynonna used to be the younger half of the Judds, and now that her mother, Naomi, has retired, is the solo half. And given the strength of her voice and the assurance of her delivery, few of us on the fan end of things had any reason to doubt that Wynonna would have any trouble coping in a career without Naomi.

First off, big thanks to Diane Trap for filling in for me Monday night. I only had the one Manhattan , but then there was the glass of wine... and one never wants to recap under the influence. Or maybe one does, but only in a more measured way in the privacy of one's own home. Tonight we start with a jazzy routine choreographed by Jason Gilkinson and danced by the pros and the troupe. First we see Dorothy's routine being called a mess, which she readily agrees with. Then Carrie Ann hits her head on her own arm, bouncing off her spiked bracelet, then worrying about whether said bracelet has put a hole in her head.

When is country music not country music?That's the question raised by Wynonna Judd's new album, "Tell Me Why" (MCA 10822), arriving in stores today. It looks country, what with contributions by Mary-Chapin Carpenter, Lyle Lovett, Naomi Judd and producer Tony Brown. And it's surely going to be sold as country, particularly after the triple-platinum success of her last album, "Wynonna."It just doesn't sound particularly country.Granted, a lot of what comes out of Nashville these days doesn't sound particularly country, but what's going on here runs a bit deeper than merely mixing a few pop tunes in with more typical country fare.

Franklin, Tenn.-- Wynonna Judd's red hair blows in the brisk afternoon wind as she steps from the '57 Chevy in the parking lot of Dotson's, her favorite hometown restaurant.As funky as an aged guitar, Dotson's has been a favorite hangout for Wynonna ever since her mom, Naomi, drove that same bright red Chevy here from Kentucky about a dozen years ago. Naomi's sights at the time were on nearby Nashville and a recording contract, but she thought quiet, suburban Franklin would be a better place to raise her two teen-age daughters.

Many performers keep their personal lives private. You don't know if they're married or how many children they have. They won't talk about these issues in interviews. But Wynonna Judd's life has nearly been an open book. She and her mother, Naomi, were the most popular mother-daughter singing duo in history, selling millions of records and touching fans with their spiritual, family-centered love songs, before Naomi retired due to life-threatening hepatitis three years ago.The pressure has been on Wynonna ever since.

After a while, you wondered why they were even there. Sporting magnolia-white tuxedo jackets, members of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra sat behind Wynonna Judd's tight rhythm section looking like mannequins - their instruments at rest during most of her show at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall Saturday night. But when the orchestra did join in, usually during the tender ballads and poppy mid-tempo numbers, the effect worked, often beautifully. The stage definitely belonged to the full-figured country star with the flame-red hair.

WYNONNAWynonna Judd (MCA 10529) Now that Naomi has retired from performing and recording, the Judds no longer exist in the plural. But after experiencing the singular charms of Wynonna Judd's first solo album, "Wynonna," it's doubtful that listeners will much mind the change of case; some may even like it better this way. True, Wynonna's singing is a mite more rambunctious than the duo's output was, but that works to her advantage on songs like "What It...

RevelationsWynonna (Curb/MCA 11090)It's always good to see a singer stretching limits and broadening horizons, but with all the unexpected twists and turns presented on "Revelations," it's worth wondering if Wynonna hasn't gone too far in that direction. It isn't so much that the material runs mostly to rock and soul; that's been the case with her solo albums from the first. Rather, the problem with "Revelations" is that it virtually ignores the country side of her sound, presenting her less as a Nashville crossover than as just another middle-of-the-road pop singer.
