Country music legend Naomi Judd-- one half of the duo The Judds -- has died, her daughter Ashley Judd announced Saturday.

"Today we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness. We are shattered," Ashley Judd said in a statement on Twitter. Ashley Judd's publicist verified the statement to CNN.

"We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public," the statement added. "We are in unknown territory."

The Judds completed what was billed as a Farewell Tour in 2011, but announced earlier this year a 10-date "Final Tour" that was scheduled to begin in September.

They performed together publicly for the first time in years earlier this month at the CMT Music Awards. The duo was scheduled to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame Sunday.

Damn. I'm feeling old thinking about high school listening to them.

The mental illness thing is pretty sad and sounds like it was with her for a number of years.

I'm not an anti-gun person, but if she had mental issues for years, she should not have had access to guns.
