Review for Naomi Judd:

From humble beginnings as a single mom in a small Kentucky town to her meteoric rise as a country music superstar and American icon, Naomi Judd’s incredible lifelong journey is an inspiring story of overcoming the odds through optimism and hard work. Naomi Judd was first known to the world as half of country music's mother/daughter duo, The Judds. Reaching unprecedented success throughout the 80's and 90's, the two sold 20 million records, scored 15 #1 hits and received over 60 industry awards.

From politics and pop culture to authors and astronauts, The A List with Alison Lebovitz has showcased some of America’s most fascinating people. Now entering its sixth season, the show has included one-on-one interviews with people such as Rebecca Eaton, Jon Meacham, Ken Burns, Judy Woodruff, Pat Summitt, Soledad O’Brien, Alton Brown, Matisyahu, Gwen Ifill and a host of other well-known leaders and legends in their fields.  

Presented by Barnett & Company and sponsored by the Hart Gallery and ERMC, Studio 45 guests and supporters of WTCI will enjoy a party with gourmet food and drinks and behind-the-scenes experiences before entering the studio for a live taping of this special episode of The A List with Alison Lebovitz featuring Naomi Judd.
