Heartbreaking Hall of Fame Ceremony: Judds Receive Award Just One Day After Superstar’s Death
(TruthandLiberty.com) – Country music legend Naomi Judd shared her longtime struggle with mental health with Good Morning America in 2016. The star opened up about her deep bouts of depression and how she refused to leave her house for weeks at a time. Naomi said the holes were deep, dark, and terrifying, and she just couldn’t escape her depression no matter how hard she tried. That year, she decided to write about her struggles and how she found treatment for anxiety and depression.
Just one day before the Country Music Hall of Fame inducted Naomi and her superstar daughter, Wynonna, Naomi tragically took her life at age 76. Despite the pain, Wynonna and her sister, Ashley, decided to pay tribute to their mother during the event. They talked about their mother’s love for their fans and how fans’ affections kept her going in her final years.
The biggest stars in country music joined the Judd sisters in honoring Naomi’s life. Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Trisha Yearwood, and many others performed Naomi and Wynonna’s hit songs in tribute to the longtime country star.
Fans gathered outside the Country Music Hall of Fame to honor the country music legend. Wynonna said she’ll continue to sing even though her heart feels broken.
