Despite The Judds being one of country music’s largest acts ever, it took a long time for them to set foot on the Grand Ole Opry stage.

But, that all changed on April 17, 2004.

Airing on GAC, together the mother-daughter duo sang two sweet songs about going back in time — “Flies On The Butter (You Can’t Go Home Again)” and “Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout The Good Old Days).”

In this vintage video clip, the singers camp out on a pair of bar stools, while a bright red-haired Wynonna leads with the first verse of the former. Her raspy, honeyed vocals dance, while Naomi sways back and forth smiling along to the southern, summer song lyrics. Then Wynonna and her mama couple their voices in gorgeous harmony.

And all the while, Naomi sure is proud of Wynonna, as she watches her daughter light up with every word she sings.

“Flies On The Butter (You Can’t Go Home Again)” was included on Wynonna’s 2003 album, “What the World Needs Now Is Love.” During that time, the track became a top 40 hit.

Although Wynonna embarked on a successful solo career after the Judds split, watching the two sing together is timeless.
