Carrie Underwood, Maren Morris & More React to Naomi Judd’s


Naomi Judd passed away on Saturday, April 30, outside of Nashville, and the news of her death left the country music community in mourning.

Judd — the mother of Wynonna and Ashley Judd and the wife of Larry Strickland — was a singer in the mother-daughter duo The Judds, who were set to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on Sunday. The Judds have the most No. 1s on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart among female duos/groups, and the second most No. 1s on the Hot Country Songs chart among all duos.

Her daughters said in a statement to The Associated Press that they had “lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness.” The Judd family requested privacy on Saturday and said there are no plans to release further information surrounding her death at this time.
