Ashley Judd Reveals Sexual Abuse, Family Pain in Memoir

Originally posted 04/05/2011 06:25PM

In a raw new memoir, All That Is Bitter & Sweet, Ashley Judd is baring all when it comes to being raised as the daughter of country music's Naomi Judd.

"My childhood was erratic, chaotic, unstable," she tells PEOPLE in this week's issue. "I was so the lost child, who just goes away and can be invisible while sitting in the middle of the room."

"I know that my mom did the best she could as did my dad," Judd, 42, continues, "but for a variety of reasons, it was just hurtful."

"You can cry cry cry like the rain," Dierks Bentley sings on "Little Heartwrecker." There's no shortage of rainfall or tears in Nashville this week, as Bentley and his fellow country-music artists deal with devastating flooding in the region.

At least 12 people have died in the Tennessee floods, as some 13 inches of rain fell over a 48-hour period in Nashville this weekend. Country artists have been forced to cancel shows, and have been telling their stories on Twitter and elsewhere.

Bentley posted a photo to Twitter of himself in his flooded basement, and had to cancel shows in Knoxville on Sunday and Charlottesville, Va., on Monday. "Hate to cancel shows," he wrote. "Might be a first, but Nashville is a disaster. All of our houses are messed up."

Naomi Judd Defends Taylor Swift

Originally posted 02/09/2010 04:25PM

Don't let Naomi Judd catch you saying anything bad about Taylor Swift. The veteran country singer has jumped to Swift's defense after she was heavily criticized for her performance at the Grammy Awards last month.

In a letter to the editor of The Tennessean, Judd, calls Swift a "dazzling performer" and lauds her for single-handedly introducing "country music to a much-welcomed younger demographic."

She attributes Swift's less-than-perfect Grammy duet with Stevie Nicks to having an off night. "Having sung many times at the Grammys, I can tell you that the stress and anxiety of performing in front of the world's top artists in every genre of music is tortuous for even the most seasoned singer," Judd writes.
