Gates will open at 10 a.m. for the music festival, which will benefit the non-profit Foundation which provides philanthropic support to Leesburg Regional Medical Center and The Villages Health System. The Judds are scheduled to appear at 3 p.m. at the 400-acre Grand Oaks Resort located midway between Orlando and Ocala and just eight miles from The Villages.

"Naomi and Wynonna won the Country Music Association's Vocal Group/Duo of the Year Award every year from 1985 to 1991," said Williams. "Then, Naomi was diagnosed with a serious illness that cost her health, her ability to tour, and nearly her life. Today, she is healthier than ever and touring has re-energized her relationship with her daughter. Together, they've given 'Juddheads' a chance to celebrate their music, and exposed a whole new generation to their breakout hits including "Mama, He's Crazy," "Why Not Me," "Love Can Build a Bridge," "Girls Night Out," and "Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days)."
