Naomi Judd's life as a country music superstar has been
nonstop success. But offstage, she has battled incredible
adversity. Struggling through a childhood of harsh family
secrets, the death of a young sibling, and absent emotional
support, Naomi found herself reluctantly married and an
expectant mother at age seventeen. Four years later, she was
a single mom of two, who survived being beaten and raped,
and was abandoned without any financial support and nowhere
to turn in Hollywood, CA.
Naomi has always been a survivor: She put herself through
nursing school to support her young daughters, then took a
courageous chance by moving to Nashville to pursue their
fantastic dream of careers in country music. Her leap of
faith paid off, and Naomi and her daughter Wynonna became
The Judds, soon ranking with country music's biggest stars,
selling more than 20 million records and winning six Grammys.
At the height of the singing duo's popularity, Naomi was
given three years to live after being diagnosed with the
previously incurable Hepatitis C. Miraculously, she overcame
that too and was pronounced completely cured five years later.
But Naomi was still to face her most desperate fight yet.
After finishing a tour with Wynonna in 2011, she began a
three-year battle with Severe Treatment Resistant Depression
and anxiety. She suffered through frustrating and dangerous
roller-coaster effects with antidepressants and other drugs,
often terrifying therapies and, at her absolute lowest
points, thoughts of suicide. But Naomi persevered once
again. RIVER OF TIME is her poignant message of hope to
anyone whose life has been scarred by trauma.
