When Wynonna Judd and her husband, Cactus Moser were married on June 10, 2012, neither one imagined their vows to see each other “through sickness and in health” would be put to the test so soon.
On August 18, 2012, Moser crossed the center line while riding his motorcycle on U.S. Route 16 in the Black Hills of South Dakota. He struck a car when he crossed the center line, but miraculously survived.
However, Moser didn’t walk away from the accident unscathed. He suffered severe injuries and had to have his left leg amputated above the knee.
Judd, who was on tour at the time, canceled the remainder of her concerts in order to be by her husband’s side. In the years that have passed since the accident, Judd continues to care for her husband, something that Cactus admires her for:
“I’ve watched what she’s done for me and to me, to help me get into a shower and into the bathroom. I can’t imagine being in that situation and going, ‘This is who I love, but this is not how I saw him.’ I have watched her be a gallant, amazing champion and wondered how I would have reacted if it were her.”
After years of recovery, Moser had the chance to celebrate a major milestone with his wife during a George Strait show in 2014. For the first time since the accident, Moser took Judd in his arms and danced with her.
The couple danced to Strait’s number one hit, “All My Ex’s Live In Texas,” with Moser twirling his wife around and holding her close as they danced. He sang along to the song, while Judd smiled from ear to ear as she watched.

After everything they’ve been through together, it’s so touching to see Judd and Moser enjoying such a special moment with one another.
