Wynonna Judd and Country Artists Perform 'Love Can Build a Bridge'

May 30, 2023

Listen to this stunning performance by Wynonna Judd and other country artists of the song ‘Love Can Build A Bridge.’

“I'd gladly walk across the desert with no shoes upon my feet, to share with you the last bite
Of bread I had to eat, I would swim out to save you in your sea of broken dreams
When all your hopes are sinkin' let me show you what love means
Love can build a bridge between your heart and mine, love can build a bridge”

This beautiful song was released in 1990, and it was written by Naomi Judd, Paul Overstreet, and John Barlow Jarvis. It was recorded and made popular by the country music duo the Judds.

The lovely song shares a message about the importance of always standing together, and it was dedicated to the Judd family and fans as almost a goodbye from Naomi Judd, who at the time was chronically ill with Hepatitis C and was forced to retire.

In an interview, John Barlow Jarvis said: “Naomi Judd handed me a set of lyrics she had written, which was inspired by a conversation she had with Paul Overstreet. I immediately heard a melody and wrote it in literally 15 minutes. What took the most time was finding the right feel for the final recording. I believe we recorded it two or three different times before they were happy.”

Seeing Wynonna Judd sing ‘Love Can Build A Bridge’ as a tribute to her mother who passed away last year, was truly touching. And seeing all of the other country music stars join her on stage for the performance was just wonderful as well.

“This was so beautiful. The strength this woman has to do this tour after losing her mom is crazy,” one person writes on YouTube after watching the video.

“This song gives me chills every time I hear it. It's so beautiful! Can't believe Naomi's been gone for a year. Time goes by fast. Wynonna is such a strong woman. I admire her so much!” comments another person online.

We hope you enjoyed listening to this performance of ‘Love Can Build A Bridge’ today!
