The singer, 58, made a surprise appearance at the CMA Fest in Nashville, Tennessee, on Friday, where she joined Carly Pearce for a duet of The Judds’ 1984 hit “Why Not Me.”

Ahead of inviting Wynonna onstage, Pearce, 32, paid tribute to her and Naomi, highlighting how the country superstar duo inspired her own career trajectory.

“CMA Fest, we lost one of our absolute pillars in country music earlier this year: Miss Naomi Judd,” she began. “As a girl growing up in Kentucky, I idolized the Judds and wanted to be like them.”

“My first concert was to see Wynonna. And I’ve always loved all of the music that the Judds made and feel like it is such a representation of the best of country music,” Pearce continued, before welcoming Wynonna onstage.
