UPDATE 5-19-22: Wynonna Judd has announced that “The Judds: The Final Tour” will move forward after the tragic passing of her mother and musical partner, Naomi Judd. Martina McBride will kick off select nights with a full set of her own classic hits before Wynonna takes the stage to sing some of her own hits and songs by The Judds. In addition, Wynonna will welcome a selection of special guests on stage each night of the tour, including Brandi Carlile, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, McBride, Ashley McBryde, Trisha Yearwood, and others to be announced. The special guests in Fort Worth have not been announced.
Iconic country music duo The Judds are embarking on their first tour in over a decade, "The Final Tour," which will make a stop at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth on Saturday, October 22.
Fort Worth is one of only 10 cities, and the only city in Texas, on the arena tour, which kicks off on September 30 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Martina McBride will join as a special guest on select dates, including Fort Worth.
The Judds, mother-daughter duo Naomi and Wynonna Judd, are one of the most successful acts in country music history. Starting with "Mama He's Crazy" off their 1983 EP Wynonna & Naomi, they had 14 No. 1 hits over the course of the 1980s, including "Why Not Me," "Have Mercy," "I Know Where I'm Going," "Turn It Loose," and "Let Me Tell You About Love."
The Judds will sing their iconic song "Love Can Build a Bridge" on the CMT Music Awards on April 11 with Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame as their background, a nod to the duo’s upcoming 2022 induction into the institution.
“The fans have always been my family of choice," Naomi Judd said in a statement. "I love them dearly, so I'm chompin’ at the bit to belt out our hits and reconnect with them once again. The cherry on top is singing with my beloved, wild and extremely talented daughter… the best singer of any genre, Wynonna!"
