Tanya Tucker Joins ‘The Judds: The Final Tour’ Star-Studded Lineup
Wynonna Judd will be hitting the road once again in 2023 for the second leg of The Judds: The Final Tour.
Judd announced Monday (December 19) that she will be joined by a number of her fellow artists for the 15-city tour. Martina McBride will once again join Wynonna on all dates. Ashley McBryde, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, and Brandi Carlile will return for a few stops each, and for the first time, Tanya Tucker will join the tour. The “Delta Dawn” singer will be present at three tour stops in February.
Tucker’s addition to the tour will be a reunion of sorts for the singer and Wynonna Judd.
In 1994, the pair shared the stage as performers at Super Bowl XXVIII at Atlanta’s Georgia Dome. The “Rockin’ Country Sunday” halftime show featured Clint Black, Tanya Tucker, Travis Tritt, Wynonna and Naomi Judd.
At the time, Clint Black was enjoying the success of his first two albums and he kicked off the halftime show with “Tuckered Out.”
Tanya Tucker followed with her 1992 hit “It’s a Little Too Late.” Travis Tritt took the stage to perform his dance-worthy tune “T-R-O-U-B-L-E.” Wynonna Judd, who was finding great success as a solo artist after The Judds disbanded in 1991, sang “No One Else On Earth,” a single that was Billboard’s No. 1 country song of 1991.
The highlight of the show came as Naomi Judd made a surprise appearance and joined Wynonna on stage. The pair led the entire stadium in singing The Judds’ hit, “Love Can Build a Bridge.” The entire stadium sang along as The Judds were joined by Clint Black, Lisa Hartman Black, Tanya Tucker, Travis Tritt, Ashley Judd, Stevie Wonder, football great Joe Namath, and more to sing the familiar anthem.
It was the first and only time in Super Bowl history that the halftime show featured only country acts.
