Back in the 1980s, it was good to be a Judd.
After literally coming out of nowhere in 1984, young Wynonna and her mama, Naomi, better known then as the mother/daughter duo The Judds, put together a run of pretty much nothing but No. 1 singles. That run reached six chart-toppers on May 10, 1986 when their song “Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout The Good Old Days)” held the top spot.
“Grandpa (Tell Me ‘Bout The Good Old Days)” did more for the ladies than just go to No. 1. Not only did it win the Grammy for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, but it also helped propel them to their fourth of seven consecutive ACMs for Top Vocal Duo and seven consecutive CMAs for Vocal Group or Vocal Duo of the Year
Speaking of historic runs the ladies achieved, “Grandpa” was part of a huge one. Of their first 16 singles, 14 of them went to the top of the charts. The only ones that didn’t? “Give A Little Love” paused at No. 2 and “Don’t Be Cruel” stopped at No. 10. More than 25 years after its initial release, the Western Writers of America named it as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time in 2010.
