Singer and actress. The daughter of Pauline Ruth "Polly" (née Oliver) and Charles Glen Judd, she had her first daughter, Christina Ciminella (known as Wynonna Judd) at the age of 18. Four years later, she had her second daughter, Ashley Judd. After this, she ended her marriage to first husband Michael Ciminella and raised her daughters as a single mother. She attended nursing school before beginning a singing career with Wynonna, a hit duo known as The Judds. As country music's most famous mother–daughter act, they released twenty top ten hits, including fifteen number ones singles. Together they won five Grammy Awards as well as numerous other awards and honors. Naomi also won a Grammy for Country Song of the Year for writing "Love Can Build a Bridge." In 1989 she married singer Larry Strickland. In 1991, she was diagnosed with hepatitis C. She founded the Naomi Judd Education and Research Fund to raise awareness of the disease and served as a spokesperson for the American Liver Foundation. In 2005, she began "Naomi's New Morning," a Sunday morning talk show on the Hallmark Channel, which aired for two seasons. She is also the author of several self-help books, such as "Naomi's Guide to Aging Gratefully: Facts, Myths, and Good News for Boomers" (2007). The Judds were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame the day after her death in 2022.
