On Sunday, May 15, Naomi Judd was celebrated with words and music at a public memorial service. It ended with her daughter, Wynonna announcing that a tour planned for later this year would go on.
“Tonight is a celebration, and at the same time I can’t put into words how devastated I am, I miss her so much. After a lot of thought, I’m going to have to honor her and do this tour. I’m just going to have to,” Wynonna stated at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium.
Judd died April 30 at age 76, one day before she and her daughter Wynonna were scheduled to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. The ceremony went on, though until Sunday it was unclear whether Wynonna Judd would continue plans for The Judds tour slated to begin in September.
