After relocating to Tennessee in the late 1970s, Judd began performing music with Wynonna, and a 1983 engagement on “The Ralph Emery Show” resulted in the duo being signed by RCA’s Joe Galante. The Judds achieved gold status with their 1983 EP “Wynonna & Naomi,” and their single “Mama He’s Crazy” topped the “Billboard” Hot Country Songs list, earning them their first Grammy.

Their 1984 first album, “Why Not Me,” was certified two times platinum and peaked at number one on the “Billboard” Top Country Albums chart. The album’s title tune earned the duo their second number one record and a Grammy nomination, while the singles “Girls’ Night Out” and “Love Is Alive” also charted at the top.

The Judd family “Have Mercy,” “Grandpa (Tell Me About the Good Old Days),” “Rockin’ with the Rhythm of the Rain,” and “Cry Myself to Sleep” were all chart-topping singles from their second album, 1985’s “Rockin’ with the Rhythm.”

Their third album, 1987’s “Heartland,” was also certified platinum and peaked at #1 on the Top Country Albums list, while the songs “I Know Where I’m Going,” “Maybe Your Baby’s Got the Blues,” and “Turn It Loose” all achieved #1 status.
