The Judds were an American country music duo composed of Naomi Judd and her daughter, Wynonna. The Judds signed with RCA Records in 1983 and were one of the most popular country music duos of the decade, recording more than ten studio albums and charting many hit singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles (now Hot Country Songs) charts, including fourteen Number Ones. From 1984, every album was a collaboration with producer Brent Maher and the prolific Nashville musician Don Potter.

In 1991, Naomi was forced to retire due to a bout of hepatitis C; shortly afterward, Wynonna embarked on a solo career. On her own, Wynonna charted five more Number One singles on the country music charts, and recorded multiple albums.


Reunion shows

Wynonna and Naomi briefly reunited for a commercial for the retail chain Kmart, performing as the Judds on the song "Changing For the Better". The duo also performed several shows in 1998. During this time, The duo also charted one more single credited to The Judds, as well as receiving a Academy of Country Music nomination for Duo of the Year in 2001.[1] In addition, Naomi sang harmony on Wynonna's 2004 single "Flies on the Butter (You Can't Go Home Again)", although this song was credited as "Wynonna with Naomi Judd".

In 2008, The Judds once again reunited for a concert at the 2008 Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California [2], as well as two shows in Canada, including one at the world famous Calgary Stampede and another at the Merritt Mountain Music Festival in Merritt, British Columbia. In 2009, The Judds performed at the CMA Music Festival in Nashville.

In February 2010, Wynonna Judd appeared on CBS's The Early Show and announced that she would reunite with Naomi, to tour and record a studio album for the final time as The Judds by the end of 2010.[3]
