Judds Exhibit Set to Open at Country Music Hall of Fame
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will honor one of music's most enduring and influential mother-daughter duos starting next month, when it debuts a new exhibit spotlighting Naomi and Wynonna Judd.
Set to open Aug. 10 and run for 11 months until July 14, 2019, The Judds: Dream Chasers will chronicle the journey Naomi Judd took as a single mother all the way to her rise to fame with her daughter; a career span that racked up 14 No. 1 songs, five Grammys, nine CMA Awards and seven ACM Awards.
“The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is sacred ground, regarded with reverence and respect,” said Naomi. “I am so overjoyed to have the Judds’ career encapsulated in this new exhibit. I’m so proud of all the success Wynonna has accomplished and we owe everything to the fans who welcomed the Judds' music into their homes.”
“I am truly humbled and grateful to partner with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum to honor the Judds’ legacy and relive some of the special moments we shared with our fans,” added Wynonna. “What an honor.”
The exhibit will showcase a number of historic items documenting the duo's career, including significant outfits, handwritten lyrics, musical instruments, and awards. Standouts include the nurse’s uniform Naomi wore before becoming a star, a note to Santa Claus Naomi and her siblings wrote as a child, and the jacket Wynonna wore for their farewell concert in 1991.
The Judds: Dream Chasers will be joining several other prominent exhibits, including American Currents: The Music of 2017, Outlaws and Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ‘70s, Little Big Town: The Power of Four, Ralph Stanley: Voices from on High, and an upcoming Emmylou Harris exhibit.
