Today the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum announced The Judds will be featured in an exhibit opening Aug. 3, 2018.
The exhibit will explore the lives and careers of the GRAMMY®-winning mother-daughter duo. Wynonna and Naomi Judd brought a fresh acoustic sound to country music, with unmistakable harmonies surrounding Wynonna’s powerful lead vocals. The Judds dominated the country charts during the 1980s and ’90s, and have sold more than 20 million albums and registered 20 Top 10 hits.
“The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is sacred ground regarded with reverence and respect. I am so overjoyed to have the Judds career encapsulated in this new exhibit,” Naomi said. “I’m so proud of all the success Wynonna has accomplished and we owe everything to the fans who welcomed the Judds music into their homes.”
“I am truly humbled and grateful to partner with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to honor the Judds legacy and relive some of the special moments we shared with our fans. What an honor,” Wynonna said.

ABOUT THE JUDDS:
Hailing from the Appalachian foothills of Ashland, Ky., 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),” and the two were on their way to a history-making career. 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 embarked on their “Farewell Tour” in 1991 after Naomi’s diagnosis of Hepatitis C forced her to retire from the road. Wynonna launched a successful solo career with her self-titled 5x multi-platinum debut album. Her first three singles also reached No.1 on the country charts and has become a country icon in her own right. Naomi focused on her health, beating the disease, writing several New York Times best-selling books and becoming a popular motivational speaker. Recently, Naomi released the paperback version of “River of Time: My Descent Into Depression and How I Emerged With Hope.”
