Wynonna Judd is set for a TODAY Show performance on October 24. There’s no purchase necessary to see her live. You can find out everything you need to know about the performance at the TODAY Show website. The performance comes near the end of Wynonna Judd’s tour with friends as part of The Judds ‘Final Tour.’

This stop is during some down time between tour dates in Fort Worth, Tex. and Biloxi, Miss. It’s been an emotional ride for Wynonna Judd. When her mother, Naomi, passed away unexpectedly in April, she wasn’t sure if she should carry the tour on. But many of her friends rushed to her side and encouraged her to move forward. She’s been performing these shows since the end of September with the help of those friends.

She says that the whole thing is helping her heal.

“This is my opportunity to step into a situation that I don’t know that I am ready to do what I’m about to do,” she said. “But I think it’s going to heal me.”

Returning to the stage for The Judds shows without her mother was difficult for her.

“It’s devastatingly beautiful to go back to the past and relive some of these memories,” she said. “Yesterday, I was in rehearsal and there’s a part in the show where they sync up mom singing with me. And I turned around and I just lost it.”

Ahead of the run, she spoke more about her feelings on stage.

“I did not know that she was at the place she was when she ended it,” Wynonna Judd said. “Because she had had episodes before and she got better. And that’s what I live in, is like, ‘Was there anything I should have looked for or should I have known?’ I didn’t.”
