Naomi’s daughters, Wynonna and Ashley, shared the news in a joint statement on Saturday.
“Today we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness,” the statement released to the Associated Press said. “We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory.”
Naomi Judd’s death comes roughly three weeks after she reunited with her daughter Wynonna to perform at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville. Their performance of “Love Can Build a Bridge” was their first live television performance in 2o years.
