Wynonna & Naomi is the first extended play by the American country music duo The Judds. Released by RCA Records in 1983, the album's name is derived from the duo's two members, mother Naomi Judd and her daughter, Wynonna Judd.

The first single, "Had a Dream (For the Heart)", was the duo's first chart single, peaking at #17 on the Billboard country charts. It was followed by "Mama He's Crazy", which became their first number-one hit single. The song was also included on The Judds' subsequent LP, Why Not Me, released in 1984.

Other songs on the album were reprised on subsequent albums, from which they were released as singles. "Change of Heart" was selected for Greatest Hits (1988), and "John Deere Tractor" appeared on Love Can Build a Bridge (1990).

The original vinyl and cassette issues were released in Mini-LP format, having only six tracks. When released on CD, "Cry Myself to Sleep" and "Dream Chaser" (taken from the Judds' Rockin' with the Rhythm album), were added, making it a full-length album.
