CMT to air ‘The Judds: Love Is Alive – The Final Concert’


CMT announced that Wynonna Judd will headline the concert event ‘The Judds: Love Is Alive – The Final Concert’ on Thursday, November 3rd at the Murphy Center at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), and will air a special televised event recreating The Judds 1991 Farewell Tour in March 2023.

Wynonna is honoring her mother’s legacy by including country’s biggest stars to join her onstage for The Judds: The Final Tour, which will continue for a second run into 2023. Its initial 11 date area fall run featured Ashley McBryde, Brandi Carlile, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, who are all set to return for select dates on the second leg, with more special guests to be announced.

The Judds homecoming to MTSU will mark the largest concert to take place at the Murphy Center since Wynonna and her mother, Naomi Judd, had their final show together on The Judds Farewell Tour over three decades ago. Said Wynonna: “Stepping onstage at the Murphy Center for the first time since December 4, 1991 will be so surreal for me. It was an emotional night over 30 years ago and will be an emotional night, for different reasons, now.  I can’t wait to lean into the nostalgia with the artists who have made this tour so special, and recreate one of the most iconic nights in Judd ‘Herstory!’” Wynonna’s guests on The Judds: The Final Tour — McBryde, Carlile, Ballerini, Little Big Town and McBride — are also slated to join the special MTSU concert, who will be sharing the same bill for the first time ever, with additional special guests to be announced.

Tickets for ‘The Judds: Love Is Alive – The Final Concert’ are on-sale via Ticketmaster, with a portion of proceeds benefiting NAMI Tennessee.
