On Saturday, her daughter, Ashley Judd, announced that country music legend Naomi Judd – half of the duo The Judds – has died. She was 76 years old.

The Judds are known for songs like “Mama He’s Crazy” and “Love Can Build a Bridge”. The duo has won a total of five Grammy Awards, nine CMA Awards, and seven ACM Awards.

The Judds’ music has been described by the Country Music Hall of Fame as having “distinctive harmony”, with “strong” lead vocals and vocal accompaniments with elements of “traditional folk harmony, blues and family”.

Judds’ final performance was at the 2022 CMT Music Awards and Judd’s death came a day before she was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
