wynonna judd shared a “mental health” checkup on social media after fans expressed concern for his well-being.
The 58-year-old Country Music Hall of Fame inductee shared a video on social media addressing comments from fans who raised concerns about her health after she was forced to cancel her New Year’s Eve appearance. New to Nashville for the weekend.
Judd, who was set to share the stage with Kelsea Ballerini for a special collaboration, abruptly canceled his appearance due to an “extreme attack of vertigo”.
She said she was “heartbroken” to disappoint her fans and vowed to see them soon when she launches the next leg of The Judds’ final tour in February.
Fans were quick to share get-well messages with Judd via social media, however some raised concerns for his mental and physical health.
“Wynonna… please just take care of yourself. You’ve had a grueling year and then Gig after Gig… I admire your determination and grace in performing, but may I suggest you’ve been pushing too hard? Be kind to yourself please,” urged one Facebook user. “Put on your pajamas, rest, sleep, don’t commit until you’re really ready. Your fans will agree, you come first. It’s just you, no one else matters.”
Another wrote: “I’m concerned that her ‘manager’ is pushing her too hard. The term ‘hit it while you’re hot’ was used. I don’t think that’s the best thing for her mentally and physically. For God’s sake…she just tragically lost her mother. It seems her manager is getting a bit greedy at the expense of her health. She just doesn’t seem right. I would like to see her take an extended break for her own physical and mental health.”
After seeing the comments from concerned fans, wynonna judd decided to address fans via video to let them know he’s okay.
“Well I’m fine…Checking. I heard some of the comments and my first thought was opinions and assholes and then I realized that people are really worried,” Wynonna began.
She went on to share an honest update on her well-being.
So, I want to respond to that piece. I am working very hard on my mental, physical and spiritual well-being. I have a great team and I’m really blessed and I’m broken and I’m working really hard on self-care, which is not selfish. It is sacred,” he said. “So, I just know that, yes, it’s me. I work very hard. We call it Wynonna incorporated because I incorporate so much into my life. I have a very full schedule, but I also have free time to be on the farm and walk in the woods and take care of the dogs. Tonight is Mexican night, we are playing and it is family. So, I’m fine and the last thing I’ll say is you can’t keep a good woman down for long.”
Checking in. #mental health
