Just two weeks before her Idol appearance, Wynonna sang the National Anthem at the 150th Kentucky Derby, reminding everyone of her incredible talent.

During the finale, Emmy Russell, the granddaughter of country music legend Loretta Lynn, joined Wynonna for a beautiful performance of Lynn’s “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” They then transitioned into Wynonna’s hit “No One Else On Earth,” creating one of the night’s most memorable moments.

Earlier in the season, Russell performed a stripped-down version of “Coal Miner’s Daughter” that moved everyone to tears.

Wynonna has always looked up to Loretta Lynn, especially since both are from Kentucky, The Bluegrass State.
