Naomi Judd

Country music singer Naomi Judd left daughters Wynonna and Ashley out of her will, according to the document.

Naomi Judd, who died by suicide on April 30, named her husband, musician Larry Strickland, the executor of her estate. A copy of the will obtained by NBC News states Strickland has “full authority and discretion” to do what he sees fit with properties within the estate, including selling or leasing them, without the approval of any court or the “joinder of any beneficiary.”

Strickland is also entitled to “reasonable compensation” for his services and any expenses, including attorney and accountant’s fees, according to the document.

In the event that Strickland can’t serve as executor for death or other reasons, Judd appointed her brother-in-law, Reginald Strickland, and Daniel Kris Wiatr, as co-executors, the will states. Wiatr is president of Wiatr & Associates, a business management and accounting firm.

It is not known if Wynonna or Ashley Judd are named elsewhere as beneficiaries of any of Judd’s assets.

Naomi Judd’s Will Was Prepared Back In November

Judd’s will was prepared on Nov. 20, 2017. Witnesses who signed the document testified that she was “of sound mind, memory, and understanding and not under any restraint or in any respect incompetent to make a Last Will and Testament.”

NBC News has reached out to representatives for the late singer’s estate as well as her daughters.
