“We will do so with heavy hearts,” Young wrote.
Judd died at the age of 76, her daughters announced Saturday, hours before celebrating a country music legend — the Half-Gods with her daughter Winona — at the Nashville Museum Medal Gala.
In their announcements posted on Twitter, daughters Judd Winona and Ashley, the actress, wrote that they had “lost our beautiful mother to mental illness.”
Her daughters’ statement added, “We are dealing with a deep sadness and know we loved her and her fans loved her.” “We are in uncharted territory.”
The mother and daughter began performing together as a professional act in the early 1980s, and soon spawned a string of blockbuster songs such as “Mama He’s Crazy” and “Love Can Build a Bridge” and sold over 20 million records. Between 1984 and 1991, The Judds won five Grammys and earned 14 singles in the Hall of Fame.
While Wynonna sang the lead, Hall of Fame said: “Naomi delivered the harmony, wit, and relaxed stage presence that captivated audiences.”
The announcement was updated after news of Judd’s death, stating that “the Museum, the Judds family, fans and the entertainment industry mourn her sudden passing.”
