Naomi rose to fame as one half of the mother-daughter duo The Judds. As The Judds, Naomi and her eldest daughter Wynonna earned 14 #1 hits. One of those chart-topping songs was 1984’s “Why Not Me,” which was released off of the duo’s album of the same title.
They wanted to pay tribute to her, and chose to do so by singing a cover of “Why Not Me.” Georges Lang filmed Brothers Osborne’s tribute to Naomi and shared the video on Twitter. His caption is in French, but when translated, it describes the Brothers’ performance as “delicate.”
