Naomi Judd Cause of Death: Naomi Judd was an American actress and singer.
She and Wynonna Judd, her daughter, founded the country singing group the Judds in 1983. They were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame the day after Wynonna’s death in 2022.
Naomi Judd, the Grammy-winning singer of The Judds and mother of Wynonna and Ashley Judd, has died. She was 76 years old.
Naomi Judd died just one day before she was going to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame with her daughter Wynona. She was 76 years old.
She and Wynona, also known as the Judds, owned a small part of country music in the 1980s and made a special path for women.
Judd took his own life. Wynona and Ashley Judd said in a statement that they lost their mother to the disease of mental illness.
Y108 country music DJ Stoney Richards was shocked.
“Naomi was such a strong person that you wouldn’t expect this to bring her down,” he said. Because she leaves behind a great legacy and two beautiful daughters, we don’t think any of those things will bring us down. The music will always live on in this business.
Naomi had a life-threatening fight with hepatitis in the early 90s. She had to stay in the hospital for years to get better.
On April 11, the Judds had been at the Country Music Awards.
Reactions From the Country Music Community
“The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum mourns Naomi Judd’s untimely passing. The Medallion Ceremony will be held on Sunday, May 1, as requested by the Judd family.” The Hall expressed briefly.
On Oct. 2, 1991, Wynonna and Naomi Judd won their ninth consecutive CMA award at the Grand Ole Opry House. After a show in Murfreesboro, the Judds announced their disbandment due to Naomi’s protracted hepatitis.
The Judds, Eddie Bayers, Ray Charles, and Pete Drake will not be honored on the red carpet.
In a long press release late on April 30, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum CEO Kyle Young stated: “Naomi Judd, a member of The Judds, a mother-daughter duo set to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame tomorrow, passed away.
Naomi overcame immense difficulty on her way to fame in music. Her successful life story overshadows today’s sad news.
We will honor the Judds’ formal Hall of Fame induction on Sunday. We shall do so with troubled hearts and minds. Naomi’s and Wynonna’s songs will live on.”
