Naomi Judd’s dark side

The country superstar was always exploring the shadow

In 1984, a 38-year-old Kentucky nurse and her daughter hit it big as a country music duo. The Judds were the feel-good “Cinderella story” of the year.

It was an amazing act: a Baby Boomer mother and daughter who seemed to be the same age — as the mother was sexier. Naomi Judd shot herself to death on April 30, 2022. I’m trying to understand her difficult story.
