Five-time GRAMMY®, nine-time CMA and seven-time ACM Award-winning iconic duo, The Judds, will receive a star on the world's most famous walkway, The Hollywood Walk of Fame. "After 37 years, I still find myself amazed! What a journey it has been so far. Thankful to still be included," said Wynonna Judd. "Many years ago before moving to Nashville, we lived in Hollywood. It was a very hard time. I could barely pay the rent and keep food on the table for Ashley, Wynonna and myself. Walking down Hollywood Boulevard, and seeing those stars under my feet, it just never occurred to me that our names would one day be on a Star with all of those famous people. It’s surreal to even imagine it now. I’m thrilled that we have been given such amazing recognition," Naomi Judd shared.
