Wiki

Naomi Judd (born January 11, 1946) is an American country music singer, songwriter, and activist.

She was born Diana Ellen Judd to Charles Glen Judd and his wife Pauline (Oliver) Judd on January 11, 1946, in Ashland, Kentucky. Her father owned a gas station; her mother started out as a homemaker but later became a riverboat cook. Her first child, Christina Ciminella (later Wynonna Judd), was born when she was only 18. After the birth of her daughter Ashley (April 1968, who later became a film and stage actress) and the end of her marriage to Michael Ciminella, Judd brought up both daughters as a single parent, first going to nursing school but later beginning a successful singing career with daughter Wynonna.

Her second marriage was on May 6, 1989, to Larry Strickland of the Palmetto State Quartet. They have no children together.
