Wynona Judd is still ‘angry’ and believes she missed Naomi Judd’s mother’s warning signs of suicidal ideation.

Trigger warning: suicide mention

Country music will never be the same again thanks to the heartbroken fans who turned out for The Judds’ final tour in Toledo, Ohio. The 80s mother-daughter band The Judds, also known as Naomi and Wynona Judd, first stirred up excitement online when they announced they would reunite for one final tour in October 2022. Sadly, Naomi Judd committed suicide a few weeks after the final The Judd tour was announced.

On April 11, 2022, Naomi Judd and her daughter Wynona made their first and final appearance together after a brief cameo at a Kenny Rogers concert in 2017. Additionally, it was their first TV performance at an award show in 20 years. The Judds announced “The Final Tour” with 10 dates in late September on the same day. Unfortunately, Naomi Judd committed suicide on April 30 after struggling with a number of mental health conditions, including depression, PTSD, and bipolar disorder. Wynona Judd recently shared her thoughts on the incident after being forced to go on tour alone.

How passed away Naomi Judd? The 76-year-old vocalist for “The Judd” won 5 Grammys and 9 CMA Awards.

Wynonna Judd refers to her mother Naomi Judd’s suicide as a “walking paradox” and says that “life exists in death.”

Wynona Judd is upset as she embarks on a solo reunion tour.

As Wynona Judd launched the tour alone on September 30 in Michigan, what would have been the duo’s reunion tour has changed to a solo performance. Naomi’s husband Larry Strickland and daughter Wynona disclosed that they were struggling with the upcoming show in Ohio. The fact that Naomi, who was known for being a fighter, gave up shocked them the most. “My mother, even in her darkest hour, would put on her wig and go down to the emergency room and help other people during their emergencies…So I find it pretty devastating that she got to a point where she was done helping herself,” said Naomi’s daughter.

Wynona admitted that she was “extremely angry” because she didn’t know anything about her mother and was thinking about committing suicide. Since she had previously experienced episodes and recovered, the singer claimed, “I did not know that she was at the place she was at when she ended it. Reality hit the singer, particularly as she was practicing for the first day of the final The Judd tour, where she was scheduled to perform a duet with her mother, and she wondered, “Was there anything I should have looked for or should have known?’ I didn’t.”

It’s devastatingly beautiful to revisit the past and relive some of these memories, Wynona admitted, adding, “Yesterday I was in rehearsal and there’s a part in the show where they sync up Mom singing with me. The moment I turned around, I completely lost it.

Please call the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) if you or someone you know is contemplating suicide.
