The Judds – Shay’s Spotlight Artist of the Week
You might remember a mother-daughter duo called The Judds back in the late ’80s-’90s. I was lucky enough to get to see them in concert and I have to say I was blown away. It was one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to.
You’ll remember, Naomi became ill with Hepatitis, and the duo quit touring. Wynonna went out on her own with some fabulous solo work, but nothing would ever compare to ‘The Judds. Occasionally over the years, the two will do a few concerts and collaborations but they’ve never been what they were in the hey-day of the ’80′s-’90′s. They were one of the most successful duo’s ever in country music.
In 1998 I had the privilege of catching their reunion show . They were playing in Dallas along with JoDee Messina, who was almost as great as they were. My mom and I were excited about this show, she doesn’t go to many concerts, but she was definitely looking forward to this one. The Judds did not disappoint.
It was full of energy, fun, soulful singing, jokes, laughter, tears and some fabulous music. It ranks #1 with me, as far as concerts I’ve seen. I’ve seen bigger, but never better. They are true showmen with a special magic of connecting with the audience.
They rarely share the stage these days, except maybe at awards shows. I am glad I had the opportunity to see them before they said their final goodbye.
