Naomi Judd, matriarch of the singing family Judd, dies at 76


The mother-daughter duo was often confused with sisters because of Naomi Judd’s youthful appearance. They sang in tightly woven harmonies, borrowing from bluegrass and gospel music, winning five Grammy Awards, selling over 20 million records, and for many years, winning top honors at country music awards.

At the height of their popularity in 1991, the Judds stopped playing after Naomi Judd was diagnosed with hepatitis C, which she reportedly contracted as a nurse. Wynonna Judd continued a successful solo career, while Ashley Judd starred in the 1993 film “Ruby in Paradise” and the Emmy-winning television drama “Sisters”.
