FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP) _ Wynonna Judd plans to rally the troops at Fort Campbell, Ky., on Friday with two shows at the Army base.

The shows are a response to the terrorist attacks on the United States, Rondal Richardson of Judd's management company, Wynonna Inc., said Wednesday.

``I am a Kentucky girl, and it made perfect sense to come home to be with these families,'' the singer said in a statement.

``Since Sept. 11, I have been searching for a way to actually do something to make a difference during this trying time for our nation. I am so inspired by the renewed sense of patriotism of our country, and I want to participate with and remind the soldiers at Fort Campbell that we are unified behind them.''

Judd was born in Ashland, Ky.

She came to fame in partnership with her mother, Naomi Judd, with hits including ``Why Not Me'' and ``Mama He's Crazy.'' On her own, she has scored hits such as ``No One Else on Earth.''
