Naomi Judd is now in the Kentucky Walk of Legends.  Louisville's "Courier-Journal" says the country singer and actress was officially added Saturday with a ceremony in which she left her hand prints and signature in cement. 

Naomi says she's pleased to see Kentucky embracing the film industry.  Her Walk of Legends induction took place in conjunction with the Louisville International Festival of Film, during which her latest film, "The Nearlyweds" was screened. 

Judd says "The Nearlyweds" is one of several films she's recently shot in Vancouver, British Columbia.  She admits her experiences working in Canada have been great, but she'd love to see movies made in Kentucky. 

Naomi explains that the Bluegrass State has "such gorgeous visuals, and the people here are so friendly."  Naomi adds that she was thrilled to learn that some of the schools in the area are starting to develop film and visual arts programs.
