What was already set to an emotional tour will now be even more so with the passing of Naomi Judd in April.
Wynonna Judd announced during Naomi Judd: A River of Time Celebration for The Judds’ matriarch Sunday at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. that she will fulfill the fall tour dates the two planned for this fall.
“I’ve made a decision, and I thought I’d share it on national television that, after a lot of thought, I’m gonna have to honor her and do this tour,” Wynonna shared with tears. “The show must go on, as hard as it may be, and we will show up together, and you will carry me as you’ve carried me for 38 years […] So we will continue this spectacle. That’s what she would want, right?”
Martina McBride will be Wynonna’s special guest along the tour route. Learn more here.
