NASHVILLE (CBSMiami) — Country Music’s only fan-nominated awards show is now just hours away.

For the first time in decades, the mother-duo The Judds will take the stage together in front of a televised audience.
The five-time Grammy-award-winning mother daughter duo Naomi and Wynonna will sing their hit “Love Can Build A Bridge” from Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame ahead of their induction in May.READ MORE: There's No Business Like Shoe Business & The High End Sneaker Business Is Booming
Naomi says she and Wynona share a magical connection when they sing.
“She watches my eyebrows. If I start to go up, then she knows the pitch, we’ve kind of got it down. But you never know, and this performance is just so, I guess the word is, radical. You’ll see,” explains Naomi Judd.
The performance is solely devoted to the fans.
“I love them so much,” says Naomi. “That’s to me better than winning a Grammy or anything.”READ MORE: Wife Of Slain Cyclist Pushes For Safety Measures After 2 More Deaths On Rickenbacker Causeway
