Just a little over a decade after Dolly Parton further established herself as a powerful female artist with “Coat of Many Colors,” a female country duo made their way on the scene. That duo was The Judds, comprised of mother Naomi and daughter Wynonna

After years of performing together, The Judds were finally signed to a record label in 1983. Together, the two won five Grammy Awards and scored a host of hits, including “Why Not Me” and “Mama He’s Crazy.”

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

This undated footage shows The Judds at the beginning stage of their career. Naomi stood closest to the front, guitar in hand, while Wynonna stood a few steps behind her.

Introducing the song, Naomi explained that when they played it for her Papa Judd a few year ago, he started to cry. They had 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 song is one that means a great deal to The Judds, and their love for it shows through in their performance. Just like usual, Naomi was the one who sang the majority of the time. Her gentle voice glided through the words, instantly enchanting all who watched her.

But the best parts were the brief moments when Wynonna jumped in to offer her vocals to the song. When Wynonna’s voice met her mother’s on the chorus, the resulting sound was exquisite.

Watching this, we’re surprised that this clip went practically unrecognized for so long. Now, we’re bringing it back for y’all to enjoy. You can do so by tuning in to the video below.

This performance is a true gem, there’s no denying that.
