Wynonna Judd unveiled a can’t-miss lineup for her upcoming tour in honor of The Judds, her iconic country duo with her late mother, Naomi Judd. “The Judds: The Final Tour,” with special guest Martina McBride, will also include appearances by Brandi Carlile, Ashley McBryde, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, Trisha Yearwood and Faith Hill on select tour dates.
“It’s hard to believe that in just 3 weeks we’ll be stepping onstage for our first show in Grand Rapids,” Judd said in a statement on Thursday (September 8). “I continue to find myself both grateful and humbled by the unwavering support from my fellow artists, music community, and of course, the fans. I am looking so forward to celebrating The Judds music one final time. It will be a bittersweet experience, and one that I will never forget.”
Earlier this year, The Judds announced plans for “The Final Tour” with McBride, sharing at that time as they announced the list of tour dates: “We are so excited to announce The Final Tour. Can’t wait to see y’all on the road! 🎶” McBride added at that time that she was “so beyond excited to be joining the iconic duo… We are going to have some fun, that’s for sure!”
Wynonna confirmed that she would continue the tour after her mother unexpectedly died on April 30. She was 76. Wynonna made the announcement during Naomi’s public memorial service, hosted at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee. She pledged that she “will continue to sing. …I am gonna have to honor her and do this tour because that is what you would want.”
Previously, Wynonna confirmed that several iconic artists were on board to turn the tour into “the ultimate girls night out.” That list included Carlile, McBryde, Little Big Town, Yearwood and Hill, along with McBride.
“It’s so amazing to be included in honoring The Judds legacy as part of their final tour. I’m beyond excited for what’s sure to be an emotional, fun, and hit packed series of shows and to be joined by some of Country Music's biggest names,” McBride said on Thursday.
The tour is set to kick off on Friday, September 30 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It extends through Saturday, October 29, closing in Lexington, Kentucky. The trek will “honor the legacy of The Judds and their everlasting impact on Country music.” See the full list of tour stops and guests here:
