Nearly a month after Wynonna Judd’s mom, Naomi Judd, died by suicide, the 58-year-old took to Instagram to mirror on life with out Naomi.

“Checking in. There is so much happening in the world right now,” Wynonna started her caption alongside a picture of her performing. “Before I sat down to write this, I thought, ‘No…I just don’t know what to say.’ Then, I heard the words from my life coach asking me, ‘What do you know?’ And I began to cry.”

She continued: “WHAT DO I KNOW??”

The enduring nation singer died on April 30 on account of suicide. She was 76.


“I DO know, that the pain of losing Mom on 4/30 to suicide is so great, that I often feel like I’m not ever going to be able to fully accept and surrender to the truth that she left the way she did. This cannot be how The Judds story ends,” Wynonna continued, including a damaged coronary heart emoji.

Wynonna continued her assertion, claiming “in order to be a healthier grandparent to my firstborn grandchild Kaliyah,” she would want to “continue to show up for myself first and do the personal healing work.” She then shared she plans to “break the cycle of addiction & family dysfunction.”

“I know that it is a simple steps program, and those steps are not easy to take at times,” Wynonna mentioned.

Her put up continued: “I made a commitment to keep doing the ‘next right thing,’ and schedule weekly appointments so that I continue with the ongoing work, even when I have good days.”


“I DO know, that I feel so helpless—right now especially,” Wynonna shared. “I DO know, that as corny as it sounds, ‘Love Can Build A Bridge.’ I find myself humming the song that Mom wrote for the fans, to myself here on the farm at night.”

The nation music star then shared that she will’t “do this grieving thing all by myself” and defined to her followers that “it’s okay to reach out for help.”

“I will continue to fight for my faith, for my SELF, for my family, and I WILL continue to show up & sing,” Wynonna added earlier than thanking her followers for “all for your love and support.”

Wynonna just lately spoke on her mom’s demise on the memorial service held in her honor earlier this month.

The memorial was held on the Rynman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, and was hosted by Robin Roberts. Wynonna and Ashley Judd sat beside Naomi’s husband, Larry Strickland, who spoke out about her demise for the primary time. 

 Wynonna shared that the general public memorial was not straightforward on her, but it surely’s “what a dysfunctional family does.”

“This isn’t easy. I don’t know why we’re doing this in public. It sucks,” Wynonna mentioned, accompanied by Ashley and Strickland onstage. “But we’re doing it, aren’t we? We’re showing the world what a dysfunctional family does. We show up for each other.”

Because the memorial got here to an finish on Sunday night time, Wynonna — who’s the second half of the music group The Judds — shared that she’s going to end the 11 tour dates her and her mom introduced in April. In 2016, Wynonna opened as much as Robin Roberts about her mother-daughter relationship, noting: “We’ve been through a lot of therapy together.”
