Brent Maher produced the EP. The Nashville producer/songwriter helped discover The Judds, helmed all of their albums, and co-wrote many of their classic hits. He told Songwriter Universe
that Wynonna & Naomi was focused largely around "Mama He's Crazy" and another track.
"We probably worked together for about nine months, just tossing ideas around," Maher said. "We came up with two songs that really defined the initial boundaries of the Judds. The first song was "Mama He's Crazy," which was your traditional, great country song, a mid-tempo ballad. Then there was "Had a Dream," which was a bluesy/country/rock song that defined the funky side of the Judds."
