Naomi Judd country music

It’s still hard to believe that country music legend, Naomi Judd, is gone.

She tragically passed away on April 30th at 76 years old outside of Nashville due to “the disease of mental illness,” just a day before her formal induction into the the Country Music Hall of Fame.

At the request of her family, the Medallion Ceremony recently went on as planned, and her daughters, Wynona and Ashley, were there to accept and speak on her behalf.

And CMT announced today that they will be airing the live public memorial, Naomi Judd: A River Of Time Celebration, from the Mother Church of Country Music at the Ryman Auditorium this Sunday

The event will include tributes from her daughters, as well as performances by some of her fellow country artists:

“The commercial-free special celebrating the life and legacy of country music icon Naomi Judd will feature tributes from Wynonna and Ashley Judd with performances and appearances from some of the biggest names in entertainment.”

The full list of performers and special appearances will be announced over the next few days, and you can catch what’s sure to be a very special show at 5pm this Sunday on CMT.

The Judd’s were officially inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame less than two weeks ago in the wake of this tragedy, where Ashley and Wynonna gave an emotional speech about their late mother and how much they love and will miss her:
