The Judds’ Naomi Judd Passes at the Age of 76

Naomi Judd of the legendary country music duo The Judds has passed at the age of 76.

The news comes not more than 24 hours before Naomi and daughter Wynonna were set to be inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame at a ceremony in Nashville.

A message from Naomi’s daughters Wynonna and Ashley Judd was shared on social media…

Along with their Hall Of Fame induction The Judds had planned a final tour this September-October.

During the 1980s Naomi and Wynonna were a mainstay on country with songs like their first number-one hit “Mama He’s Crazy.”

The Judds were multiple CMA, ACM and Grammy Award winners during their career, and accumulated over a dozen number-one hits.

Naomi’s last televised public performance was earlier this month when she and Wynonna appeared on the CMT Music Awards with an epic version of their classic “Love Can Build A Bridge.”

Naomi Judd (born Diana Ellen Judd on January 11th 1946) was 76 years old at the time of her passing, and her family requests privacy during this difficult time.
