A Rundown of The Judds’ Biggest Billboard Hits

Naomi Judd, one half of the iconic duo The Judds (with her daughter Wynonna) passed away unexpectedly Saturday, April 30, at age 76. Though no specific cause of death was given, Wynonna and Naomi’s other daughter Ashley said in a statement to The Associated Press that she died “of the disease of mental illness.”

The Judds, the most successful female duo of all time,  were about to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on Sunday (May 1).

Between 1983 and 2000 the mother-daughter team rolled up 25 Hot Country Songs appearances, which encompassed 14 No. 1s and 20 top 10s.

Starting with “Mama He’s Crazy,” their first No. 1 in August 1984, and “Cry Myself to Sleep” in January 1987, the pair snapped up eight straight leaders. Their 14 No. 1s rank them first among female duos and second among all twosomes to Brooks & Dunn (20).

On Top Country Albums, The Judds scored 10 top 10s, including four No. 1 sets.
