Judds Last Encore tour starts in November

Thursday, June 10, 2010 – The Judds not only helped launch the 2010 CMA Music Festival before more than 10,000 fans in downtown Nashville, but also named their fall tour - The Judds: The Last Encore.

The Judds last toured together in 2000 as the Power to Change tour.

Wynonna and Naomi recently asked fans to name their upcoming tour in The Judds "Name That Tour" contest. Jacqualine Budgell from Murfreesboro, Tenn. was the winner.

According to Naomi Judd, The Last Encore tour is an opportunity to celebrate the relationship with their fans one last time. "There is nothing like music and laughter to connect people," she said. "How I've missed that encounter with the very ones who've allowed us that awesome privilege. I'm counting the days till I can be back on my bus, visiting their towns."

"This tour gives me a chance to enjoy where mom and I are in our relationship. I look forward to celebrating our personal and professional journey...together," Wynonna said.

Shows start on Nov. 26, the day after Thanksgiving, in Green Bay, Wisc. and will continue on to their home state of Kentucky with a play in Louisville alongside dates in Salt Lake City, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. The Judds will close their final tour in Phoenix where their 2000 "Power To Change" tour began.

Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be).
