Wynonna Judd and her husband, Michael Scott “Cactus” Moser, tied the knot in 2012, but their relationship goes back much farther than that. It turns out the two actually met around 1986, a decade before Judd’s first marriage. At this time, Judd was around 22, and Moser, whom IMDb reports was born in 1957, was about 29. According to Us Weekly, Moses is a drummer and co-founded the country band Highway 101. He met Judd when Highway 101 and The Judds toured together.
However, the two soulmates weren’t able to get together at the time, as Judd’s career prevented her from getting serious with anyone at the time. “He was touring with Mom and myself,” Judd told Us Weekly in 2012, “and I was smitten then, [but] when you’re touring with your mother it’s kind of hard to get a date. So we went our separate ways.”
In the 25 or so intervening years, Judd would go on to get married and divorced twice: first to a man named Arch Kelley, then to D.R. Roach, her former bodyguard. It wasn’t until 2009 that she and Moser would finally begin dating. From then, it didn’t take long to realize they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. They got engaged on Christmas Eve 2011, and married on June 10, 2012, when Judd was 48 and Moser was 55. The two have been inseparable ever since.
