‘The Judds’ sing a song that made their Papa cry

The Judds

‘The Judds’ are considered country music legends by everyone who has heard their music. The fabulous duo blended their voices in beautiful harmony to produce excellent country music over the years.

This performance features The Judds singing a song by Dolly Parton titled ‘Coat of Many Colors.’ The girls are very young in this performance from the early 1980s before they had signed a record deal or even went by the name ‘The Judds.’

Wynonna tells a story about when they began practicing this song in their house a few winters before the performance. She says they noticed their dad crying. They asked their dad why he was crying over the music. They had never seen him cry before. Their Papa told them he had a coat just like the one in the song when he was a little boy.

Wynonna tells the audience that they remember and think of Papa Judd whenever they sing this song. She begins the verse while playing acoustic guitar, and the Judds are backed by a bass guitar, drums, and lead guitar.

Naomi joins in during the chorus with perfect harmony. Their blend and chemistry are undeniable. They sing about the coat of many colors their mama made for them, which was lyrics penned by Dolly Parton.

They are both in long dresses and silky blouses, and their hair seems to match perfectly in color. Their performance is from the ‘Ralph Emery Show.’ The song is a laid-back groove that follows a nice bassline with a catchy melody from The Judds.

This classic footage was taken when Wynonna was still in high school, and Naomi was a working nurse. After The Judds signed with RCA Records in 1983, they became one of the most successful acts in country music history. They scored 14 number 1 songs and five Grammy Awards in their 8-year career.
