Wynonna Judd revealed Sunday during CMT’s “NAOMI JUDD: A RIVER OF TIME CELEBRATION” that she would continue with “The Judds: The Final Tour” this fall in her mother’s absence.
Today she announced she planned to transform The Final Tour into the ultimate girls’ night out with the addition of Brandi Carlile, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Ashley McBryde, Trisha Yearwood and more to be announced in the coming weeks. Each night one of the women will appear with Wynonna on stage to help her sing the duo’s classic hits.
Hill will join Judd on stage at the new hometown show at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky.
“What a full-circle moment it will be to end the tour in Kentucky where it all began,” Wynonna said in a statement. “It means so much to have my sisterfriend, Faith, join me for this musical celebration. It is pretty amazing – all of the people who have come forward to offer up their time and gifts. I am feeling extra grateful.”
Martina McBride will open select nights with her hits before Wynonna walks on for a combination of her chart-topping song and Judds’ classics.
Wynonna said she continues to be humbled by the fans who continue to show up when she needs them most.
“I am grateful that we will continue to honor The Judds’ legacy together,” she said.
Larry Strickland, Naomi’s husband, added: “I am so happy that in this time of grief for us all, Wynonna has agreed to move forward with this tour as my sweet wife Naomi would have wanted her to do.”
The 11-date arena tour, produced by Sandbox Live and Live Nation, will launch Sept. 30 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, at Van Andel Arena and continue through October before wrapping in Lexington, Kentucky.
