A Judd reunion is coming to the CMT Awards.

Wynonna and Naomi Judd are set to perform at the ceremony in their first televised appearance in 20 years. The duo will reprise their 1990 hit song "Love Can Build a Bridge" in front of Nashville's Country Music Hall of Fame, a nod to their upcoming induction in May. Kacey Musgraves is scheduled to introduce the pair.

The Judds are the only group to be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. Joining the Judds in the 2022 class of the Hall of Fame: soul music pioneer Ray Charles, steel guitarist Pete Drake, and drummer Eddie Bayers.

The mother-daughter act spoke to PEOPLE last year about being inducted into the Hall. The younger Judd expressed that the moment had been a long time coming, especially for her mother.

"I'll be honest," the 57-year-old songstress told PEOPLE in August. "I've talked to three people, and immediately the first thing they said was, 'It's about damn time,' and as a daughter, I went, 'Yes, it is.' My mother, to me, is the queen of my parade — and it's time to celebrate her."
