On Tuesday, the country singer posted a video on Instagram addressing her mental health in the wake of her mother Naomi’s death by suicide in April 2022. She addressed a comment in which a fan accused her of not looking “well” and claimed that her manager pushed Judd too hard and was getting “greedy” with opportunities for the “Love Is a Bridge” artist.
She joked that she likens her life to “Wynonna Incorporated,” because she incorporates “a lot” into her life, including family time.
“I have a very full schedule, but I also have time off to be on the farm and to walk in the woods and take the dogs, and tonight is Mexican night, we’re playing games and it’s family,” she concluded. “So I’m OK. The last thing I’ll say is, you can’t keep a good woman down for too long.”
Earlier this week, Judd shared on social media that she would not be joining Kelsea Ballerini on stage for a New Year’s Eve performance in Nashville, due to “an extreme bout of vertigo.”
Last year, Judd spoke out about her mother’s passing, and how it has made her reflect on her own mental health. In a May Instagram post, she wrote that she did not want Naomi’s death to be how the Judd family story ended, and vowed to do the work to help the next generation.
