Naomi Judd Remembered as The Judds Gain on Billboard’s Country Charts

The Judds' 'All-Time Greatest Hits' marks the duo's best rank on Top Country Albums since January 1992.

Following the passing of Naomi Judd on April 30 at age 76, The Judds – Naomi and daughter Wynonna – attain their highest rank on Billboard‘s Top Country Albums chart in over 30 years, as The Judds’ All-Time Greatest Hits, issued in 2017, arrives at No. 11 on the May 14-dated list with 11,000 equivalent album units (up from a negligible sum) in the week ending May 5, according to Luminate.

The duo, which scored eight top 10s, including four No. 1s, on Top Country Albums during its career, lands its highest debut and best placement since January 1992, when its Greatest Hits Vol. II rose to No. 7.


On the all-genre Billboard 200, All-Time Greatest Hits also marks The Judds’ highest rank (No. 90) since 1992, when Greatest Hits Vol. II hit No. 54.

On Country Digital Song Sales (which originated in 2010), The Judds notch their first five entries, with “Love Can Build a Bridge” at No. 1 with 6,200 sold (up from a nominal total). The pair performed the 1991 hit, one of The Judds’ 20 career Hot Country Songs top 10s, April 11 on the CMT Music Awards, sadly marking Naomi Judd’s final public performance.

Here’s a rundown of The Judds’ classics on the latest Country Digital Song Sales chart:

No. 1, “Love Can Build a Bridge” (6,200)
No. 2, “Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout the Good Old Days)” (5,000)
No. 5, “Why Not Me” (3,500)
No. 9, “Mama He’s Crazy” (3,000)
No. 22, “Rockin’ With the Rhythm of the Rain” (No. 22; 1,400)
