The Judds were one of the biggest attractions in country music in the eighties and nineties. They won five Grammy's and eight Country Music Association awards. They conducted a farewell tour in 1991 shortly after Naomi (Mom, with the hat on the card) was diagnosed with Hepatitis C. Wynonna continued on our her own for years, never really achieving the success they had as a duo. The third member of the family is actress Ashley Judd. My wife and I went to see the Judds in their farewell concert at Portland's Memorial Coliseum. Pirates of the Mississippi opened and then T.G. Shepard, both of which we missed. We got to our seats as they were setting the stage for the third act, a newcomer named Garth Brooks. Wow, what a performance. I remember him giggling all the way through Friends in Low Places as the entire crowd sang along. The Judds were almost a let down after the high energy of Garth's set.
