Biography

Naomi Judd was born Diana Ellen Judd on Jan. 11, 1946, in Ashland, Ky. Finding herself pregnant, she quickly got married but not to the father of her first child, daughter Christina Ciminella. Christina, born May 30, 1964, became known as Wynonna Judd when the mother-daughter duo stormed the country charts in the 1980s.
After Naomi divorced, she moved from their latest home in Hollywood, back to Morrill, Ky., with Wynonna and another daughter Ashley. There, she worked as a nurse in a local infirmary. Outside working and school hours, she and the children would sing anything from bluegrass to showbiz standards for their own amusement. However, when Wynonna nurtured aspirations to be a professional entertainer, her mother lent her encouragement, to the extent of moving the family to Nashville in 1979. Naomi’s contralto subtly underlined Wynonna’s tuneful drawl.

In addition to many performances on Ralph Emery’s morning television show, Naomi elicited an audition for RCA Records while tending a hospitalized relation of label producer Brent Maher. With a past that read like a Judith Krantz novel, the Judds — so the executives considered — would have more than an even chance in the country market. An exploratory mini-album, which contained proved the executives correct. The single “Had a Dream (From the Heart)” peaked at No. 17 in 1984. Later that year, the Judds scored their first of 14 No. 1 hits with “Mama He’s Crazy.”

    """""""""""""""Did lovers really fall in love to stay Stand beside each other, come what may Was a promise really something people kept Not just something they would say Did families really bow their heads to pray Did daddies really never go away Woah oh, grandpa, tell me 'bout the good old days Grandpa, everything is changing fast We call it progress, but I just don't know And grandpa, Let's wander back into the past And paint me the picture of long ago"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
