On Sunday 1 May 2022, an official statement, with regard to the passing of Naomi Judd (Friday 11 January 1946 – Saturday 30 April 2022), from Gene Watson, was issued through Adkins Publicity in Nashville:
‘I remember how kind and nice Naomi was when we worked together.
She was a good person with a generous spirit toward everyone she met.
I’m keeping her family in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
The country music world was devastated this weekend with the news of Naomi Judd’s death.
So many of us had toured with The Judds, or at least, visited with Naomi and Wynonna at music business functions over the years and we were rocked by the sad news which happened just one day before The Judds were to be inducted into the prestigious Country Music Hall of Fame.
I know you join me in sending love and support to Naomi’s family, and also to any of you who may suffer from depression or have a loved one with the disease’
