Wynonna Judd will return to the Stanislaus County Fair this year, officials said Thursday. Wynonna & The Big Noise will open the fair’s 10-day run with a free concert July 11.

“Wynonna is a staple in the country music industry for over 30 years,” Adrenna Alkhas, county fair spokeswoman, said in a news release. “We are extremely thrilled to have such a legend perform at our fair.”

Judd performed in Oakdale last year as part of the Sierra View Music Fest. She last performed at the Stanislaus County Fair in 2000.

In addition to putting out a series of hit country singles, she competed on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” wrote a novel called “Restless Heart,” and appeared in a documentary series, “The Judds,” on the Oprah Winfrey Network in 2011.
