Naomi Judd died by suicide after longtime illness

Naomi Judd, one half of iconic country music duo The Judds, reportedly died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound after years of battling mental illness.

Naomi and Winona, 57, were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on Sunday. Naomi Judd's daughters - 

Winona and Ashley - fought back tears to pay their respects to their late mother 24 hours after she passed away.

Naomi and Winona Judd were among the most popular duos of the 1980s, scoring 14 No. 1 hits during their nearly three-decade career.

Early last month, Naomi and Winona announced that they would be reuniting for a final celebratory tour that was set to begin in September.

Naomi has been candid about her mental health struggles in the past. In 2016, she revealed her battle with "extreme" and "severe depression" that left her home on "Good Morning America".

Naomi Judd On GMA "[Fans] see me in rhinestones, you know, with glitter in my hair, that's really who I am." 

But then I would come home and not leave the house for three weeks, and not change out of my pajamas, and not practice general hygiene. It was really bad.

In 2016, Naomi wrote a book titled "River of Time: My Descent Into Depression and How I Emerged with Hope" in order to make her 

diagnosis public and to let people know that mental illness is "a character flaw". No, it's a stinky disease.
