Not my kind of music but I do have two vinyl albums of the mother and daughter duo. I love their version of Don't Be Cruel.

I remember being in a Sound Warehouse record store (remember those?) in the mid-80's when I first heard The Judds. They were playing an album over the speakers in the store as they did in those days. I heard a song and thought "that sounded pretty good". As I continued my browsing (probably in the Classical section), I heard another couple of cuts and was curious as to what I was hearing. I walked up to the kiosk where they had the current selection on display and saw that it was Rockin' With the Rhythm by The Judds. I bought the album and took it home and played the rest of it. I liked it enough to pick up their earlier album Why Not Me? as well as their introductory EP that had been released a year before. I liked all of them.

I do not even listen to country music as a rule, but the sound of their beautiful harmonies won me over. Sad to hear the Namoi's life was such a struggle. RIP.

The sad thing is, I don't think this is a coincidence. I don't think when it happened is a coincidence. Despite all the lip service, I doubt any true ground will ever be gained. People not only have a fundamental inability to understand, they are unwilling to actually try.

I wouldn't call it inability. I see it more as a lack of desire, especially when the individual is famous and/or wealthy.

I've come to realize that a lot of people, maybe even most, react to this situation with deep resentment. Moreso when the individual in question has fame and/or wealth. The general belief is that the fame/wealth should make it go away, when in fact, it actually tends to make it much more difficult to overcome.
