The Judds receive the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award, which honors individuals who are pioneers in the country music genre.

The Judds gave country music an acoustic boost in the 1980s, ultimately racking up 20 Top 10 hits. They picked up seven consecutive ACM Awards in the Vocal Duet category, as well as a Song of the Year trophy for "Why Not Me." Their winning streak began in 1984 with "Mama He's Crazy," the first of 14 No. 1 hits. Fans also identified with the ups and downs of Naomi and Wynonna's mother-daughter relationship, adding another dimension to modern classics like the nostalgic "Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days)" and the empowering "Love Can Build a Bridge."
