The Judds Perform 'Love Can Build a Bridge' in First TV Performance In 20 Years at 2022 CMT Music Awards

The legendary mother-daughter duo hit the stage in Nashville and wowed the crowd.

The Judds made their triumphant TV return on Monday at this year's CMT Music Awards. Legendary mother-daughter duo Naomi and Wynonna Judd performed together for their first televised number in over 20 years. 

The duo were introduced by country songstress Kacey Musgraves in downtown Nashville, where they performed their hit 1990 song "Love Can Build a Bridge" on an outdoor stage, adorned with "The Judds" written across it.

The pair didn't let some wind and inclement weather stop them from delivering a memorable set, as they were flanked by choir singers adorned in flowing white robes that rustled in the strong winds.

The performance was held in front of the iconic Country Music Hall of Fame - an allusion to their upcoming 2022 induction.

The pre-taped performance was also played on the massive screens at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium while Naomi and Wynonna watched from the audience while showered with love.

The Judds are often celebrated for a rarely interrupted stretch of 14 No. 1 hits. The duo has sold more than 20 million albums and have 16 gold, platinum and multi-platinum albums, led by two platinum albums, Why Not Me and The Judds Greatest Hits.

While this is The Judds' first performance together at the CMT Music Awards, they're no strangers to the event. Wynonna performed alongside Kid Rock to open the 2011 awards show, while Naomi served as a show presenter in both 2008 and 2009.
