Naomi Judd and daughter Wynonna, who are making a comeback, accept their prize from Country Radio Broadcasters in Nashville, Tennessee.

Mother-and-daughter country duo The Judds have been awarded the Country Radio Broadcasters 2011 Career Achievement Award in Nashville, Tennessee. The pair took to the stage at the event on March 1 to accept their prize and honor the radio presenters who have helped them throughout their career.

Naomi Judd told the audience she was "38 years old with two scared kids" when she recorded her first tracks in 1983. It was a good year for the family - she and daughter Wynonna Judd also released their first single, "Had a Dream (For the Heart)", and their career took off.

In the following decade, the duo scored 14 number one country singles and sold millions of albums, and Wynonna insisted radio bosses had a big part to play in their success, stating, "I've known about everybody in this room since I was 18 years old."

The Judds have reformed for a major 2011 reunion tour and Wynonna revealed both mother and daughter are keen to get back on the radio: "One of my goals this year is to get back on country radio."
