Naomi Judd Reflects On The Judds 35th Anniversary Of First Hit Single

A fresh, crisp acoustic sound with undeniable harmonies surged across country radio stations 35 years ago when The Judds’ first single, “Have A Dream (For The Heart),” peaked at No. 17 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs in 1984. Country music’s sonic landscape changed after that.

This year marks The Judds’ 35th anniversary of unparalleled success…a feat Naomi Judd opens up about in the January 21st issue of Woman’s World, on newsstands now.

Back then, the only thing we knew was how to sing and that we had each other: We were totally dependent on that,” Naomi shares with Woman’s World.

The Judds are often celebrated for dozens of GRAMMY®, ACM and CMA Awards; a rarely-interrupted stretch of 14 No. 1 hits when every single of theirs released by RCA landed in the Billboard Top 10; and a career that defined what it means to be individualists in the music business. The Judds dominated touring in the 80s, have sold more than 20 million albums and scored 20 Top 10 hits, won five GRAMMY®, nine CMA and seven ACM Awards. These lifetime achievements are honored with a new, extensive Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibit, The Judds: Dream Chasers, open through July 14, 2019.

As Woman’s World shares, at her core, the 73-year-old is still a courageous mother who worked hard to forge a better life for her kids…and today she even has a scholarship devoted to helping other women do the same. In the issue, Naomi also shares secrets to peace, joy and chasing dreams.
