WATCH: The Judd’s Exquisite Rendition of “Coat of Many Colors”


Just over a decade after Dolly Parton established herself as a true female vocal powerhouse with her “Coat of Many Colors,” a mother-daughter duo has also paved their way on the scene. That duo was popularly known as The Judds, comprised of mother Naomi and daughter Wynonna.

Taking Parton as one of their inspirations, The Judds went on to release hit after hit such as “Why Not Me,” “Grandpa,” and “Mama He’s Crazy.” But, while these are hits they originally sang, they have also covered their fellow female country artists’ hits. One of them is their splendid rendition of Parton’s “Coat of Many Colors.”

The Judds’ Take on “Coat of Many Colors”

Taking the lead, Naomi exuded her sweet, smooth vocals while Wynonna provided the backup with her strong, deep tone. The dynamic between the mother and daughter can be heard quite well in a long-forgotten clip that shows them singing “Coat of Many Colors.”

This undated footage features The Judds when they were still at the start of their career. Before they went on with the tune, Naomi explained they played it for her Papa Judd a few years ago. He cried. They have never seen him so emotional before. So, when they asked him why he was crying, he said, it was because he once had a “coat of many colors” himself.

Needless to say, the tune is one of the most meaningful to The Judds. And, their love for it shone in their performance.

The Judds: A Synopsis

One of the most successful acts to have graced the country music stage is the mother-daughter duo, The Judds. Naomi and Wynonna Judd started with big dreams and high hopes that one time, they will earn their breakthrough. And, it happened in 1983 when they signed to RCA Records. From then until 1991, they released six studio albums and recorded a total of 25 singles on the country charts, 14 of which charted at No. 1.

Throughout the span of their colorful career, The Judds received a number of accolades and recognition. They earned five Grammy Awards for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, and eight Country Music Association (CMA) awards. Unfortunately, The Judds had to cease their eight-long successful years. In 1991, Naomi was diagnosed with Hepatitis C which led her to leave the spotlight and focus her time for her health. Wynonna, on the other hand,embarked on a highly successful solo career.
