Country Singer Naomi Judd Passes Away At The Age Of 76

Grammy-winning country singer Naomi Judd reportedly passed away at the age of 76.

On Saturday, Naomi’s daughter, Ashley Judd, announced the tragic news on her Instagram account.

“Today, we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness.” Ashley added, “we are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her. She was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory.”

Before her passing, the country singer opened up about her personal struggles. Naomi revealed that she dealt with depression throughout her childhood, and no one noticed.

Naomi was one-half of the mother/daughter duo, ‘The Judds.’ Naomi formed the group in 1983 with her daughter, Wynonna Judd. The two women had a successful careers in music. The Judds released six studio albums, had over 20 hit singles and won 5 Grammys.

Unfortunately, the group officially split in the 90s, with both ladies going their separate ways. One of the reasons for the disbandment stemmed from Naomi’s mental issues. This undoubtedly led to Naomi and Wynonna’s estranged relationship.

However, the women reconciled and were set to go on tour together for the first time in over a decade. In addition, the ladies were also going to appear together Sunday as inductees into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

A few notable songs from The Judds are “Love Can Build a Bridge,” “Girls Night Out,” and “Grandpa.”
