Wynonna Judd Worries Fans With CMA Performance
Wynonna Judd has had a difficult time since her beloved mother, Naomi Judd, passed away in April 2022. The loss came unexpectedly. The duo, who recorded, performed, and toured together for years as The Judds, were to be inducted into the Country Hall of Fame on May 1, 2022.
Sadly, Naomi Judd took her own life the day before the ceremony. Wynonna and Ashley Judd went on with the ceremony in their mother’s honor.
The Judds had also already booked and sold tickets for a new tour. After Naomi Judd’s death, Wynonna Judd did the tour with special guest appearances from various country singers.
Once The Judds: The Final Tour was over, the singer turned her focus back on her solo career. On November 8, 2023, she took the stage in a surprise duet with singer Jelly Roll during his performance of his song “Need A Favor” to open the CMAs.
However, viewers quickly noticed that Wynonna Judd was acting strange. Throughout the performance, she held on to Jelly Roll’s arm and didn’t move at all.
In a statement after the show, she claimed it was just nerves, but fans can’t help but worry for the veteran country singer.
Trisha Yearwood Gets Emotional Over Duet With Wynonna Judd
In addition to continuing The Judds’ tour, Wynonna Judd found other ways to honor her late mother. In October, the album A Tribute To The Judds was released, featuring performances of some of The Judds’ greatest hits by some of the most famous musicians.
Wynonna Judd only performs one song on the album – a duet with Trisha Yearwood on The Judds’ 1986 hit, “Cry Myself to Sleep.”
The two took their rendition to the stage at the Grand Ole Opry last week. The performance was part of an upcoming television special honoring Naomi Judd.
