Wynonna Judd will be joined on her upcoming concert tour by several big names in country music to pay tribute to her late mother, country music legend Naomi Judd, who died by suicide last month at the age of 76.
Before Naomi's unexpected death in late April, she and daughter Wynonna, who together made up the legendary country music act The Judds, had made plans to launch a fall 2022 tour, "The Judds: The Final Tour."
At a public memorial concert for Naomi over the weekend, Wynonna announced that the tour would continue, adding that it was what her mother would have wanted.
Since then, details have emerged about the lineup for the revised tour, which is scheduled to begin Sept. 30 and last through the month of October.
The show is being reimagined as an all-star "girls' night," with performances from Little Big Town, Ashley McBryde, Trisha Yearwood and Brandi Carlile. Martina McBride -- who was originally scheduled to be the opener on the tour -- is still on the bill and will perform a set of her own music during the supporting act slot each night.
A final arena stop in Lexington, Kentucky, has been added to the tour for Oct. 29. The location is particularly meaningful, as Kentucky is Wynonna and Naomi's home state. Faith Hill will join the bill on that date.
In a statement, Wynonna thanked fans for their outpouring of support and interest in attending the shows, even though the lineup will look very different than originally planned.
"I am humbled, once again, by the loyalty of the fans who have been with us for 38+ years, who continue to show up for me when I need them the most," she said. "I am grateful that we will continue to honor the Judds' legacy together."
"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," added Larry Strickland, Naomi's husband of 30+ years.
A limited number of tickets are still available for stops on The Judds: The Final Tour. Tickets for the Lexington, Kentucky, show go on sale May 21.
