Carly Pearce gave one of the most powerful performance of the night at the Country Music Hall of Fame's Medallion Ceremony on Sunday (May 1), where she sang in tribute to new inductees the Judds.
The Judds were one of a class of inductees — also including the late Ray Charles, and recording musicians Eddie Bayer and Pete Drake — and in the hours leading up to the ceremony, tragedy struck the legendary duo when Naomi Judd unexpectedly died on Saturday, just one day earlier.
At the request of the Judd family, the Hall of Fame moved forward with its plans to celebrate its new class of inductees, and Naomi's daughter and duo member Wynonna Judd attended the event and gave an emotional speech. Naomi's death cast a long shadow over the evening's performances, too: Pearce delivered a somber and reverent rendition of "Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days)," a hit song for the Judds from 1986.
After the ceremony, Pearce reflected on her experience of performing during such a powerful moment, and spoke to the Judds' lasting impact.
