April 3 (UPI) -- Wynonna Judd's husband, drummer Cactus Moser, had his left leg amputated after a serious motorcycle accident last August. But the country singer and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant has told People that Moser is back up and walking again with the help of a prosthetic leg.

"It's been an emotional ride for me this week," Judd, 48, said after her husband walked toward her for the first time since his accident.

"It freaked me out because I've seen him in a wheelchair and using a walker, and he just walked towards me and I was like, 'Wow.' I was so stunned. I saw the wreck, I saw him lose the leg."

Judd added that Moser has been positive about life in the aftermath of his accident, calling him "Mr. Happy-Go-Lucky." She said his attitude reminds her of her "Dancing" partner, Tony Dovolani.

"It's really irritating, because sometimes I just want to complain or act tired about dancing, and he'll say, 'But you're moving and you're looking so great.' I'm like, 'Go talk to Tony. You guys are so alike.'"

Judd and Dovolani were eliminated from the competition Tuesday night, after a poorly received samba to Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar On Me," failed to impress judges and viewers.

"I faced one of my biggest fears and I've made a lifetime friend out of Tony," Judd said at her send-off.
