Wynonna Reflects on Her Mother Naomi Judd's Death a Month Later


It has been one month, nearly to the day, since country legend Naomi Judd died by suicide on Apr. 30. Naomi, one half of country music duo The Judds, died on April 30. She was 76. Besides their big country hits, the Judds were also known for recording gospel leaning tunes such as "Guardian Angels," "When King Jesus Calls His Children Home," "Love Can Build a Bridge," "I Know Where I'm Going," and many others.  

On Sunday (May 29), Naomi's daughter and country music artist Wynonna Judd shared an emotional social media post, detailing some of her reflections on the tragic loss of her mother, one month later.

There is so much happening in the world right now. So before I sat down to write this, I thought, "No...I just don't know what to say." Then, I heard the words from my life coach asking me, "What do you know?" And I began to cry.


I DO know, that the pain of losing Mom on 4/30 to suicide is so great, that I often feel like I'm not ever going to be able to fully accept and surrender to the truth that she left the way she did. This cannot be how The Judds story ends.

I DO know, that in order to be a healthier grandparent to my firstborn grandchild Kaliyah, {born 4/13, 2 weeks & 2 days before Mom left}, to break the cycle of addiction & family dysfunction, that I must continue to show up for myself {first} and do the personal healing work. I know that it is a simple steps program, and those steps are not easy to take at times. Therefore, I've made a commitment to keep doing the "next right thing," and schedule weekly appointments so that I continue with the ongoing work, even when I have good days.

I DO know, that I feel so helpless-right now especially.

I DO know, that as corny as it sounds, "Love Can Build A Bridge." I find myself humming the song that Mom wrote for the fans, to myself here on the farm at night.

I really DO know, that I'm not able to do this grieving thing all by myself, and that it's okay to reach out for help. I will continue to fight for my faith, for my SELF, for my family, and I WILL continue to show up & sing.

Thank you all for your love and support. Let's check in more often
