In an interview outside his Nashville home, Judd opened up about his grief and his lingering questions.
“I didn’t know she was where she was when she finished it because she had already had episodes and was doing better,” she said. “And that’s what I’m going through, it’s like, ‘Was there something I should have looked up or should I have known?’ I didn’t. That’s why it’s such a shock.
The tour had been announced just weeks before the elder Judd’s death.
“I feel her nudging me. And sometimes I laugh,” her daughter said during the interview. “And sometimes I’m like, ‘I really miss you. Why aren’t you here so we can have a fight?'”
The interview airs on Sunday.
