Naomi Judd Biography

Hailing from the Appalachian​ ​foothills​ ​of Ashland, Kentucky, mother​ ​and​ ​daughter​ duo, The Judds, were first discovered by RCA​ ​label​ ​head​ ​Joe​ ​Galante​ ​in​ ​1983 ​after landing a spot on​ ​WSM-TV’s​ “​The​ ​Ralph​ ​Emery Show.” They ​made​ ​their​ ​chart​ ​debut​ ​by​ ​​the ​end​ ​of​ ​the​ ​year​ ​with​ ​“Had​ ​A​ ​Dream​ ​(For​ ​The​ ​Heart).” The​ ​two​ ​were​ ​on​ ​their​ ​way​ ​to ​becoming one of the best-selling duos of all time.

For​ ​the​ ​rest​ ​of​ ​the​ ​1980’s,​ ​each​ ​single​ ​from​ ​The​ ​Judds​ ​released​ ​by​ ​RCA​ ​went​ ​to​ ​the Billboard​ ​Top 10,​ ​with​ ​14 hits ​going​ ​all​ ​the​ ​way​ ​to​ ​number​ ​one.​ The Judds swept the CMA’s Vocal Group/Duo category from 1985 to 1991 and garnered six Grammy Awards.

The​ duo embarked​ ​on​ ​their​ ​“Farewell​ ​Tour”​ ​in​ ​1991 ​after​ ​Naomi’s​ ​diagnosis​ ​of​ ​Hepatitis C​ ​forced​ ​her​ ​to​ ​retire​ ​from​ ​the​ ​road.​ ​Naomi​ ​focused​ ​on​ ​her​ ​health,​ ​beating​ ​the​ ​disease and writing several​ ​New​ ​York​ ​Times​ ​best-selling​ ​books.

Judd served as the first national spokesperson for the American Liver Foundation, combining her fame, her experience as a former RN and her passion to help people. As a keynote speaker, she re-directed energies into communicating her learnings and research, educating audiences about the scientific link between mind, body and spirit in the healing process.

Judd helped launch CMT's reality competition hit, Can You Duet, as a talent judge for two seasons from 2008 to 2009. In the summer of 2009, following a Judds performance at the CMA Music Festival for 50,000 fans, the reaction sparked The Judds to reunite for one last tour. The tour became realized as the 2010 "The Judds: The Last Encore," which traveled to 18 markets during the holiday season. The tour featured new Judds music, Judds classics and holiday favorites. Naomi and Wynonna's preparations for the tour are featured on their own series on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).

Meanwhile, Naomi continues humanitarian efforts including St. Jude Children's Hospital, River Cities Harvest, the Saint Louis University Liver Center, M.A.D.D., Parents Television Council, Make-A-Difference Day, Women's World Peace Initiative, the National Domestic Violence Hotline, and she created her own July 4th Judd's Annual Food Drive to benefit families of Appalachia.
