The Judds on Their ‘Bittersweet’ Las Vegas Residency

The Judds are all set to reunite for a nine-show stint at the Venetian in Las Vegas beginning on Oct. 7. The mother-daughter duo stopped by the Taste of Country Nights studio and chatted about the residency, as well how they will — or won’t — settle in Sin City.

“I was there a couple of weeks ago, I went to check it out and I said, ‘Oh my gosh. I can’t wait to have Halloween here in Vegas. Can you imagine?’ and they said, ‘You can’t wear costumes or masks in Vegas in Halloween,’” Naomi explains, surprised. “Nobody in Vegas is allowed to because they’ll cheat. They’ll rob you.”

Though they’re coming together to perform, the Judds won’t be living together. Naomi will have a place in a gated community and keep her life pretty normal, while Wynonna has obtained a larger-than-life suite.

“I’m doing the Vegas stay in the suite — I’ve got a trainer coming and I’m going to practice doing every stretch and everything I can do to get out of the hotel on the days off,” the younger Judd explains. “I’ve got my kids coming, so we’re going to be whatever … I’m going to be a mom. It’s a different day in Vegas, it’s very family-oriented.”

“There’s lots to do there, but I’m going to stay in that room that’s bigger than every house in our family history. It’s like the size of the bottom of a department store. It’s so big. You can have people there that you don’t even see or talk to. It’s crazy. So we’re inviting people that we don’t even like to come stay with us,” Wynonna jokes to ToC Nights.Judds Top 3

“The bathroom is an aquatic fun center,” Naomi adds of her daughter’s luxurious suite. It’s your guess if she’s serious.

As far as the duo is concerned, their career is basically coming full circle. Vegas is where it all started for them when they were first signed, back when they were an opening act for Merle Haggard.

“It’s bittersweet for me, too,” Wynonna reveals.

Tickets for the Judds’ Girls Night Out residency are already on sale at the Venetian box office. The nine shows take place between Oct. 7 and Oct. 24.

 Sam Alex is the host of Taste of Country Nights radio, a syndicated night show which airs on more than 60 Townsquare Media Group stations nationwide.
