Tim McGraw & Faith Hill Honor The Late Naomi Judd With Heartfelt Tribute: “Prayers To Wynonna & Ashley”

Tim McGraw honored the late Naomi Judd during his headlining performance on Saturday, April 30, at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights, MO, on his McGraw 2022 Tour.

A fan captured the country superstar and “7500 OBO” singer delivering a heartfelt performance and shared it on YouTube.

Following a performance of “Humble And Kind,” McGraw delivered an impromptu, a cappella performance of the chorus The Judds’ most celebrated tune, “Love Can Build A Bridge.”

In the midst of McGraw’s tribute, his wife Faith Hill joined him on stage as she waved to the crowd. The couple then shared a hug before she exited the stage and McGraw’s concert concluded.

Upon hearing the news of Naomi’s passing, McGraw took to social media to mourn the loss of the late Judds’ singer and send his condolences to Naomi’s daughter, Wynonna and Ashley Judd.

“Sending our love and prayers to Wynonna and Ashley and the entire Judd family,” McGraw wrote. “We grieve with you and so many others.”

Naomi Judd passed away at the age of 76 on Saturday (April 30), shocking the country music community.

Her passing was revealed on social media in a statement from her daughters. “Today we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness,” the statement read. “We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory.”

The unfortunate news comes just weeks after Naomi Judd and Wynonna Judd reunited for a performance of “Love Can Build A Bridge” at the 2022 CMT Music Awards.

Their performance coincided with the announcement of The Judds’ farewell tour, which was set to kick off on September 30 and hit 10 cities with support from Martina McBride.
