As mentioned, this update’s story will focus on ‘Traditional Country Music’ [mainly 1950 and 1960s] singers who passed in 2022. Normally, I would pen a fairly long write-up for each as well as up to four songs/videos. However, due to time constrictions the write-ups will be brief … and in general only have two songs [or videos] for each singer. Don’t forget, the Jukebox has been updated and 40 Christmas songs have been added.

>> Naomi Judd <> January 11, 1946 to April 30, 2022: Naomi, born in Kentucky, was named Diana Ellen Judd at birth … she changed her name to Naomi because she felt that the name Diana didn't fit 'her own spiritual, rural Kentucky true heritage.' She felt she was best aligned with Naomi in the Bible. Naomi was working as a nurse in Nashville when she and Wynonna launched their duet career. During their fairly short career, The Judds had 14 # 1 country hits, two of which were Mama He's Crazy in '84 and Grandpa, Tell Me... in '85. In 1991 Wynonna went on to a solo career. The Judds were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2022.
