The Judds are back, baby!

The iconic mother-daughter Country duo will will reunite for the first time in more than two decades on a nationally televised award show stage when they perform at the 2022 CMT Music Awards, airing April 11th on CBS and Paramount+.

According to CMT, the duo will make a triumphant return to the stage to perform their international hit and chart-topping single, “Love Can Build A Bridge” with the iconic landmark of Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame as their background, a nod to the duo’s upcoming 2022 induction. The  Naomi and Wynonna will be introduced by two-time CMT Awards nominee Kacey Musgraves, who will acknowledge the lasting influence that The Judds’ music has had on her career before taking the stage.

The Judds’ performance on the CMTMA stage later this month will be the first for Naomi and Wynonna. Previously, Wynonna performed alongside Kid Rock to open the 2011 award show, and Naomi served as a show presenter in both 2008 and 2009.
