Naomi Judd to be Honored on Kentucky Walk of Legends
Naomi Judd will be the recipient of a special honor, acknowledging her legendary career in country music, in her home state of Kentucky this week.
The Kentucky Walk of Legends displays a cement cast of the hands and footprints of notable entertainers. Other artists on the famous Walk include comedian and actress Lily Tomlin, actor Conrad Bachmann and the late actor Warren Oates.
The casts are all on display at the Down One Bourbon Bar & Restaurant in Louisville. The ceremony will take place as part of the annual Louisville International Festival of Film, which begins on Thursday, Oct. 10.
The Judds sold more than 20 million albums in their career, and had 15 No. 1 hits. Naomi Judd has also written several books, including her best-selling book, ‘Naomi’s Guide to Aging Gracefully.’ She served as the first national spokesperson for the American Liver Foundation after her own diagnosis with Hepatitis C in 1991, and continues to advocate for several health organizations.
