“My Strongest Weakness” by Wynonna Judd was nothing short of a career-defining vocal performance. The singer was at her peak and no one could touch her, especially with a ballad like this. It was definitely a moment where she was seen as more than just as one-half of the vocal duo The Judds but as Wynonna herself. That she was capable of so much more and she could move a stage even without a partner. 

The 1992 hit “My Strongest Weakness” was co-written by her mother and vocal duo partner Naomi Judd with Mike Reid as the fourth and final single of her self-titled debut album. The devastating ballad spoke about a woman in deep pain wondering if she will be afraid to risk falling in love again. The message of the song itself was powerful and fiery and Wynonna delivered it. 

And that vocal prowess was validated even more when the song hit number one on the Radio & Records list and number four on the Billboard Hot Country charts. It was her fourth hit and fourth consecutive chart-topper as well following “She Is His Only Need,” “I Saw the Light,” and “No One Else on Earth,” which were all from her album ‘Wynonna.’ The album also earned number one on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, secured the fourth spot on the Billboard 200, and received a 5x Platinum certification from the RIAA. 

That level of achievement on her self-titled debut album alone even solidified her reputation (though none of it was actually too surprising considering the high-caliber vocal quality and the songs’ heartfelt lyricisms).
