New Day Dawning is the fifth studio album by American country music artist Wynonna Judd, released in 2000. It produced only two chart singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts: "Can't Nobody Love You (Like I Do)" at #31, and "Going Nowhere" at #43. Also included are cover versions of Joni Mitchell's "Help Me" and The Fabulous Thunderbirds' "Tuff Enuff".

Initial presses of the album included a bonus EP called Big Bang Boogie. This four-song EP reunited Wynonna with her mother, Naomi Judd, with whom Wynonna recorded as The Judds in the 1980s and early 1990s before going solo in 1991. All four songs on the EP are credited to the Judds. Of these, "Stuck in Love" was released as a single, charting at #26 on the country charts in 2000 and producing the Judds' first chart single in nearly a decade.
