Hailing from the Appalachian foothills of Ashland, Kentucky, mother and daughter duo, The Judds, were first discovered by RCA label head Joe Galante in 1983 after landing a spot on WSM-TV’s “The Ralph Emery Show.” They made their chart debut by the end of the year with “Had A Dream (For The Heart).” The two were on their way to becoming one of the best-selling duos of all time.
For the rest of the 1980’s, each single from The Judds released by RCA went to the Billboard Top 10, with 14 hits going all the way to number one. The Judds swept the CMA’s Vocal Group/Duo category from 1985 to 1991 and garnered six Grammy Awards.
The duo embarked on their “Farewell Tour” in 1991 after Naomi’s diagnosis of Hepatitis C forced her to retire from the road. Naomi focused on her health, beating the disease and writing several New York Times best-selling books.
Judd served as the first national spokesperson for the American Liver Foundation, combining her fame, her experience as a former RN and her passion to help people. As a keynote speaker, she re-directed energies into communicating her learnings and research, educating audiences about the scientific link between mind, body and spirit in the healing process.
Judd helped launch CMT's reality competition hit, Can You Duet, as a talent judge for two seasons from 2008 to 2009. In the summer of 2009, following a Judds performance at the CMA Music Festival for 50,000 fans, the reaction sparked The Judds to reunite for one last tour. The tour became realized as the 2010 "The Judds: The Last Encore," which traveled to 18 markets during the holiday season. The tour featured new Judds music, Judds classics and holiday favorites. Naomi and Wynonna's preparations for the tour are featured on their own series on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).
Meanwhile, Naomi continues humanitarian efforts including St. Jude Children's Hospital, River Cities Harvest, the Saint Louis University Liver Center, M.A.D.D., Parents Television Council, Make-A-Difference Day, Women's World Peace Initiative, the National Domestic Violence Hotline, and she created her own July 4th Judd's Annual Food Drive to benefit families of Appalachia.
