WHAT: CMT REMEMBERS: NAOMI JUDD” is a celebration honoring the extraordinary life and legacy of the legendary Naomi Judd, one half of country music’s iconic mother-daughter duo, The Judds. Featuring archival footage and interviews blended alongside memorable performances and moments from the past several decades of her career, the half-hour event recounts Naomi’s storied past as a trailblazer for women in country music and path to becoming one of the most successful duos in country music history. From a comprehensive overview of The Judds’ early beginnings and family dynamics to Naomi’s career post-The Judds before the GRAMMY-winning pair’s reunion in 2022, the special will also feature Naomi’s final interview on the 2022 CMT MUSIC AWARDS red carpet earlier this month and include coverage of last night’s emotional induction ceremony at the Country Music Hall of Fame.
